“For Rabidfest 2022, we will be headlined by punk icons Discharge, responsible for era defining punk music which has since left a legacy inspiring metal-titans Metallica.

“Also, we will be joined by one of the most exciting bands in the scene today; Divine Chaos.

“The rock and metal communities are truly some of the most inclusive and welcoming - and at Rabidfest, this is ever paramount.

“We encourage an environment where everyone can be themselves, enjoy live music with like-minded people, and discover their new favourite music.

“We hope you can be part of an exciting new chapter of Rabidfest 2022.”
