Thrashville, the ‘slightly heavier’ music festival held at Dashville in the Hunter Valley, is psyched to announce the full line-up for its auspicious September 11 return.
Held in lush bushland confines, the popular one-day blast, which only just had its postponed 2020 chapter held in February this year, is back with a fresh plate of awesome emerging and established acts, ready to spark pure delight into anyone with a pension for punk, hard rock, heavy metal and everything in between.
The one-day festival will feature two stages of music from midday to midnight, with sixteen spots on the bill along with live graff artists and pro-skateboard displays.
Please welcome the current line-up for September 11:
KIM SALMON’S SMOKED SALMON + THE NEW CHRISTS + CABLE TIES + FLAMING WREKAGE + EZEKIEL OX & THE EVIDENCE + BLACK RHENO + THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION + RICK DANGEROUS & THE SILKIE BANTAMS + GOATZILLA + DARK ORDER + MOUNTAIN WIZARD DEATH CULT + THE GROUNDS + THE OWEN GUNS + LOVER LAMP + DORIS + RAGDOLL
Earlier in June the festival announced a teaser with the ‘first furious five’ featuring one of Australia’s most respected vocalists, Rob Younger with his band THE NEW CHRISTS, Melbourne post-punk trio CABLE TIES, Sydney’s death metal FLAMING WREKAGE, South Coast hardcore punkers THE OWEN GUNS and thrustcore innovators RICK DANGEROUS & THE SILKIE BANTAMS.
And today the line-up grows to include,
Another Australian legend with garage grunge-rock royalty KIM SALMON’S SMOKED SALMON, multidimensional-politically-charged powerhouse EZEKIEL OX & THE EVIDENCE, Sydney’s genre bending heavy groove exponents BLACK RHENO, the devout all-consuming punk, stoner, metal experience THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION, Brisbane’s heavy rock monster GOATZILLA, proud thrash metal assailants DARK ORDER, the funky sludge/ doom that is MOUNTAIN WIZARD DEATH CULT, bone rattling punk rockers THE GROUNDS, the sinfully cheeky tongue-in-something spectacle LOVER LAMP and local all-girl punk chicks RAGDOLL.
Since its inception in 2017 Thrashville has fast become a key pilgrimage for the heavy music community. The one-of-a-kind regional all-inclusive heavy music festival has had an overwhelming response via the website, receiving a mountain of applications from punk, metal, rock performers across Australia eager to perform. As such organisers are still toying with the idea of adding an additional third stage, focused specifically on the local scene.
