The Loft are back with AROCKALYPSE 7

It’s that time again so get ready to rock!
Once a year for the past few years (seven to be exact), when the universe comes together in perfect harmony, when enemies become friends, when there is no bad but only good, when everything tastes like chicken, Arockalypse takes place at The Loft in Warrnambool. It is a time when things are truly at their most excellent.
Being massive local supports and even bigger supports of the music industry as a whole, The Loft in Warrnambool will host Arockalypse 7 across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (8th-10th).
Bands were put in a Colosseum and ordered to fight it out in order to get on the bill. Coming out victorious were The Go Set, The Stiffys, Dr. Colossus, Lemonbait, Rage Against the Sewing Machine, The Alamo, The Monaros, The Refuge, GinJan, Hollow World, The Ascended, Diving Headbutt and The 2nds.
The Loft continue to support our local legends, as this year’s line up sees an all aussie lineup of rock gods! Let us fill you in on what’s to come.
Friday night is Metal Night from 8pm -1am where we get to rock out to the likes of Hollow World, The Ascended, Nameless, Diving Headbutt and The 2nds.
Saturday 8pm – 1am we have the “Local Line Up” with Rage against the Sewing Machine, The Monaros, The Refuge and Gin Jan.
Then on Sunday, last but certainly not least, we get not one but TWO alternating stages, the main stage and the acoustic stage! The acoustic stage will host some of the districts finest playing 20 minute sets for you. The Main Stage with be hosting our headliners The Go Set, The Stiffys, Dr Colossus, Lemonbait and The Alamo.
As ones to support local bands time and time again, The Loft are a Forté fave, drawing from Warrnambool and surrounds for musical and artistic talent and then nurturing and supporting this. This isn’t about putting on Australia’s chart-topping artists, and we wouldn’t want that. Here, you can be sure to always find amazing local bands. There is really something for everyone at this festival!
