Big Day Out. Dead. Warped tour. Dead. Soundwave Festival. Dead. Fuck that shit anyway!
You want a real festival. Am I right? A festival of real bands and real people, that doesn’t cost you a fortune only to be herded into a pen with every undesirable teenage crisis victim of Disturbed, with green hair dye running down their face and vomiting out the beer and drugs they couldn’t handle. We’ve all been there I’m sure, but it gets old quick.
Here’s a festival, that is so cheap it will cost you nothing! It’s GrudgeFest!’16. And if you like grind and punk you’ve got to get down to this!

As part of Melbourne grindcore band Grudge‘s album launch, Cabin Fever has been asked to play on Grudgefest!’16 at the Brunswick Hotel, Brunswick. It’s a stella line up of grind/fastcore/punk with Hailgun headlining the day.
Of coarse theres Grudge and Cabin Fever, but also Disparo from Sydney, before they take off on their world tour! Literally a world tour!
Meth Leppard from Adelaide are on this amazing line up, I haven’t seen these guys yet. I’ve been giving the demo tape a good flogging recently, I really dig it, it includes a cover of Siege of Power, so impossible not to like it really!
Morbid Anal have a great name, I’m assuming grindcore or goregrind style. i haven’t heard them yet, but I ran into members at Yah Yah’s NYE, and I found out that one is the guitarist for Odiousembowel. So they should be cool as.
Also Melbourne Grind Syndicate goovers ChristChrusher. And Drain Life and ROT too. And there it all is it. I bet that’s most impressive lineup of fast music you’re going to see for a while!
You can see all this, for free, Saturday 20th February at the Brunswick Hotel, crn Sydney Rd and Barkley St Brunswick. See you in the pit!
