Presented by Dirthouse Agency, Meltdown Festival is Australia’s newest touring festival and steps up to meet demand for a quality alternative and heavy metal event since the demise of Soundwave.
You all know the songs: ‘Everytime We Touch’, ‘Evacuate the Dancefloor’ and ‘What Hurts the Most’ – they’re our favourite dance anthems of the noughties.
Leave it to a pop-punk band that defected from NSW to set up camp in Melbourne to present a large-scale threat to society.
When Confidence Man arrived last year, they made serious waves with their irresistible, irrepressible dance music, and were hailed by triple j as the best new band in Australia.
While genres such as ‘metalcore’ have seen an increase in radio play, it’s the heavier sounds such as ‘grindcore’ and ‘thrash metal’ that are really making a stand to international audiences… that’s where King Parrot comes in.
