Blacken Open Air

BLACKEN 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 2020, BLACKEN returns for it's eighth iteration, with dozens of bands from every corner of the country and beyond set to descend upon for a weekend of music and community-spirited heavy metal culture.
