Against The Grain 4 (SA) Festival Line-up Announced

Posted by Lachlan

Aww yeah, the line up for Against The Grain 4 on Saturday the 13th of September has been released. It's being promoted as all ages, all day and all metal at 'Fowlers Live', so get out your eyeliner, straighten your hair, praise Lucifer, whack on that bullet belt and patch jacket and practice your windmills because when it rains metal, it fucking pours!!!

Man I feel like Andrew Haug writing that level of metal cheese. This looks like a bit of a more mainstream/commercial metal festival, but its great to see The Ocularis Infernum on the bill.

Heres the full line-up anyhow:

- Psycroptic (TAS)
- Alchemist (ACT)
- Daysend (NSW)
- Double Dragon (SA)
- Picture The End (SA)
- Truth Corroded (SA)
- Dyscord (WA)
- Diatribe (SA)
- The Ocularis Infernum (VIC)
- Skintilla (SA)
- State of Integrity (QLD)
- A Red Dawn (SA)
- Se Bon Ki Ra (SA)
- Asphyxia (SA)

Tickets will only set you back ~$30 which is pretty impressive considering the number of larger and interstate bands, and the fest runs from midday to midnight. You can hook up tickets from Venuetix and Moshtix.

Heavy mental.
