WACKEN METAL BATTLE AUSTRALIA RETURNS IN 2022! NEW ZEALAND ADDED!
We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the legendary Wacken Open Air and their world-famous competition Wacken Metal Battle back to Australia, and for the first time to New Zealand, to give one lucky metal band the chance to perform at the grandest stage of them all, the holy land of heavy metal - Wacken Open Air, alongside a carefully-curated selection of incredibly prizes!
Our national finals will also once again be held at Stay Gold in Melbourne on April 16th!
We are excited to unveil the following rewards for all bands participating at Wacken Metal Battle:
Our national winner will not only receive a coveted slot at Wacken Open Air to participate in the international finals, but they will also be guaranteeing themselves a spot at next year's Good Things Festival! Talk about a coveted prize!
It's not just our national winner that gets all the glory - we're also stoked to say that our heat winners will also receive a slot on a to-be-announce touring mini-festival that will be coming next year as well!
We advise all bands looking to apply to visit the Metal Battle website at metal-battle.com to get up to speed on everything from eligibility to the full list of rewards on offer.
