Pretty rare we all come together for a Big Wednesday... work, kids, recovery, Netflix... well enough of that already.  WED APRIL 01 IS BIG WEDNESDAY.  It's just... well... big... with a massive lineup of World Class bands including Kadavar (GER), Melbourne's Palace of the King, Swedish fuzz lords Deville, Sydney power duo Astrodeath and locals The Narcissists.  HOLY.  You wanna drop what you're doing midweek and come check this out.  The calendar is just a number you realise this right!?  BIG WEDNESDAY.  Get your tickets now.

There are few bands who’ve had more of an effect on the course of classic heavy retro rock this decade than Germany's KADAVAR, having never sounded so much in command of their music.

Arguably the hardest working band in European rock, Kadavar have established themselves quite simply in a different league form their retro-rock labelled peers, smashing out large capacity international tours and festivals (Hellfest/Psycho Las Vegas/Download/Wacken) en masse and landing German and US chart positions for a host of album releases.  Latest album release For the Dead Travel Fast (Nuclear Blast), reignites new depths and heights alike on this their fifth and darkest full-length.

Highly regarded as one of the most explosive heavy psych live experiences on the planet, Kadavar return to Australian and New Zealand shores in March/April 2020 for Beats Cartel on the back of a Mojo Burning Festival appearance and new album.

“For the Dead Travels Fast sets new standards” - METAL HAMMER

Get ready to witness something special... Kadavar are coming.  Appearing at The Basement in Canberra on Wednesday April 01 as part of BIG WEDNESDAY $40/50 alongside Palace of the King (VIC), Deville (SWE), Astrodeath (NSW) and The Narcissists (Local).
