Krank’d Up 2018 returns with a loud line-up of alternative, rock and metal bands. Now entering its seventh year, South Africa’s foremost truly Krank’d Up splash takes place on the 29 September 2018 at Sundowners in Alberton, Johannesburg.
Krank’d Up 2018 sees UK tech-metal pioneers Sikth and US metalcore titans Miss May I headlining – along with some of the best loud stuff SA has to offer.Incase you didn't know, Krank’d Up was voted one of the 10 festivals you need to attend by Metal Hammer magazine, with past headliners including the likes of 36 Crazyfists, Protest the Hero, Unearth and Norma Jean.
Wayne Boucher, Talent Buyer for Turning Tricks Entertainment, the masterminds behind Krank’d Up comments, “To say that I’m excited about this year’s Krank’d Up would likely be the understatement of the year. With each instalment of the festival we try up the ante, and this year is no exception.”
“We have the extremely powerful live show of Miss May I to look forward to and I know I’ll battle to contain myself when SikTh hit the stage as they’ve influenced so many prog-metal bands we’ve dealt with over the years. I’m especially proud of our local line-up which boasts 13 Krank’d Up debuts for this year’s edition.”
