Heavy music festival Thrashville has announced the bumper line-up for its second year, which will take place Saturday January 20th in the Hunter Valley, NSW.

After its breakthrough debut in January 2017, it was abundantly clear that punk, rock and metal fans are looking for a grassroots event – and festival promoter Dashville was happy to give it a shot.

The best of the Hunter’s acts will share the stage with some of Australia’s heaviest hitters. Frenzal Rhomb will make their Dashville debut, fresh from the release, and touring of their raucous ‘Hi-Vis High Tea‘ record. Their relationship with the Hunter Valley extends back over two decades, to the days of Dog Bite at Maitland Showground in the late 90’s.

King Parrot will no doubt be the heaviest band to ever perform at the famed Lower Belford property. Renowned for their insane live shows, genius music videos and brutally infectious anthems, Thrashville fans are going to know they’ve been swooped on by the Parrot.

Batpiss have quickly garnered a legion of followers with their dark brand of sludge punk. Their 2017 album ‘Rest in Piss‘ is raw and unmistakably Australian, punctuated by heavy riffs and unsettling lyrics.

Frankenbok have long had a beloved fanbase in the Hunter Valley and Dashville. The Melbourne metal purveyors deliver pure, unadulterated brutality, plying their trade over two monstrous decades.

Rounding out the bill is the return of punk rockers The Australian Beefweek Show, who blew everyone away at Thrashville’s maiden voyage, prog maniacs Troldhaugen, Brisbane all-girl garage rockers Voiid, new band Post Truth, featuring members of Hard-Ons and Conation, Newcastle punk bands Paper Thin, Rort Menace and Jones The Cat, plus famed Dashville supergroup Dashville Progress Society, who will bring in some special local metal-heads for a wild set of classic punk and metal covers.

Thrashville will also feature a host of delicious food trucks, skate demos on the Dashville half pipe, live graff art and lots of other fun times.
