KRANK’D UP fans are in for the experience of their lives with the announcement of highly acclaimed sonic innovators, PERIPHERY as its 2016 headliner. They’ll be joined by much revered post-hardcore hard rockers, NORMA JEAN as the second international act on the bill. Not to shy away from great South African talent, the KRANK’D UP 2016 lineup is rounded off spectacularly well with the inclusion of 20 local rock & metal acts that have become steadfast names in our alternative music scene.

Smashing any preconceptions of progressive metal to bits across three albums and a handful of unconventional releases, PERIPHERY needs no introduction. The band’s mind-bending instrumentation and diverse vocalizations will be vividly on display as they make their South African debut at this year’s KRANK’D UP music festival. PERIPHERY fans can expect to have their minds blown yet again when the band releases it’s much anticipated album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty on 22nd July.

Armed with a blisteringly unique sound, Atlanta's NORMA JEAN carry tons of experience thanks to war-like performances at legendary tours such as Ozzfest and Mayhem Festival, as well as unforgettable appearances alongside acts such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, He Is Legend, Every Time I Die and Architects to name a few. With seven incredibly powerful albums under their belts, South Africa is set to experience an onslaught like no other when NORMA JEAN totally destroys the Krank'd Up 2016 stage.
