In a month, the big date has finally arrived: Metal United Down Under (MUDU) – in its fifth edition. On 22 September, 117 Australian metal bands will perform at shows in 14 cities all over Australia. All this happens on the same date under the same banner, the MUDU banner. It’s a massive underground venture on a community basis. Many bands use MUDU as a date on their tour, explore new fan communities and/or extend their network. MUDU has developed into an important opportunity for bands in the Australian metal event calendar.
After Darwin dropping out last year because of venue issues, the Northern metal heads are back and MUDU covers again all states and territories. MUDU Darwin brings a special thrash edition and they have produced an entertaining trailer. Besides MUDU Darwin, there will be shows in Albury (with Deadset Legends – tributes to past heroes), Bendigo, Brisbane, Bunbury, Canberra, Hobart, Lismore, Maryborough, Melbourne, Orange, Port Pirie, Sydney and Wagga Wagga.
These are the bands announced:
