Bridge City Beat Down Announced: Metal Festival + Medieval Cage Fighting

Annabel Kean / Friday 7th May, 2021 12:32PM

I can barely believe it, but the perfect music festival is happening this May in humble Hamilton and it's called Bridge City Beat Down. For less than a crispy fifty you get: Sets from twelve North Island metal bands, five pro wrestling matches, ten medieval cage fights, a retro multiplayer game lounge, something called 'Dragon Bath Worx' and a VR experience. There's something for everyone, and that's coming from a person who isn't exactly a metahead, but I think Bridge City Beat Down might just be my gateway drug. Get a ticket ASAP, here's the full lineup...

Bridge City Beat Down
Saturday 29th May - Meteor Theatre, Hamilton (all ages)
Featuring... Pull Down the Sun, Mega Maw, Pale Flag, Achilles Complex, Freaky Meat, Downfall of Humanity, Chasing South, Static, JP Drag Kings, The First Child, Qualms and Threat.Meet.Protocol.
