BLACKEN OPEN AIR is Australia’s first ever open-air heavy metal camping festival! It takes place in the Dead Centre of the country and inspires an annual pilgrimage into the heart of Australia. In it’s seventh year in 2019, BLACKEN is evolving again: moving to an iconic new location, where it is set to become the most unique heavy music event in the Southern Hemisphere.

Dozens of bands from every corner of the country are set to descend upon the Dead Centre for a weekend of music and community-spirited heavy metal culture.

BLACKEN OPEN AIR will run from May 3-5 2019
