Kaitaia MetalFest 3

Whats On

The Far North's original extreme music event attracts quality visiting acts from all over the country and will be supported by up and coming local bands.

Previous Kaitaia MetalFests have featured the likes of teenage Waipu thrash metal sensations, Alien Weaponry; Wellington's tier 1 black metallers, Bullet Belt; Auckland's power metal veterans, Forsaken Age; Whangarei grindcore exponents, Eolithic Relapse; and teenage nu metal destroyers, Cherry Blind among many others.

The event is designed first and foremost as an affordable concert experience for local rock fans, while also providing a platform for original extreme upcoming metal acts to play in a live setting. It will also showcase the hospitality and attractions of the Far North, and allow local bands to play alongside top tier touring acts to gain experience and confidence in a live setting.

Local businesses will jump on the Kaitaia MetalFest 3 branding juggernaut to sponsor the event by providing produce, services and heavily discounted accommodation to make it easier for the touring acts to travel here while making Kaitaia an attractive destination for alternative musicians to showcase their chops.
