Blacken Returns!

Open Air in July


Following the news that Bluesfest was cancelled one day before it was due to start yesterday comes the announcement that Australia’s original camp-out metal festival is returning in 2021.

Now based at Ross River Resort on Arrernte country in the NT, Blacken Open Air will present an eclectic program of culture, art, food and, of course, extreme metal from all points around the country, converging at its very centre between July 30 and August 2. Tickets are on sale now from
