The inaugural year of the Australia’s newest heavy music festival is here, focusing on our country’s best punk, hardcore, grind and death metal. Featuring a line-up of local and interstate guests, heavy music fans will descend onto The Triffid in Newstead on July 15, 2023 for A COLD DAY IN BRISBANE.

Featuring an exclusive performance and first visit to our city in 8 years, Melbourne powerviolence-inspired hardcore-punk legends EXTORTION will be headlining the day along with slamming brutal-death pioneers DISENTOMB. More interstate mayhem will include the technical death metal of Melbourne’s FACELESS BURIAL, energetic and thought-provoking hardcore-punks and recent Music Victoria-award-winners of 'Best Heavy Work', Melbourne’s OUTRIGHT, the post-metal sludge of Sydney’s LO!, and blackened death quartet BLACK LAVA. Closing out the interstate line-up of artists will be psychedelic hardcore-punks GELD (Melbourne) along with JOY (Jokes On You) who will be demonstrating their Sydney-style of stompin’ hardcore.

Originally calling it a day in early 2017, turbulent and explosive hardcore powerhouse, SICK PEOPLE are back and will be a part of the local roster of bands joining A COLD DAY IN BRISBANE. Joining them will be the pummelling death metal of DESCENT, slamming metallic hardcore 5-piece CRAVE DEATH, the intense screamo / emo-violence of BLIND GIRLS who will be fresh off their USA Tour, post-metal newcomers SLOWCUT and Southport Hardcore’s finest… ENTRAPMENT.

Sure to excite any fan of our country’s more abrasive musical talent, A COLD DAY IN BRISBANE is set to become an annual event and celebration of the underground.

A COLD DAY IN BRISBANE is presented by long-time supporters of independent Australian music, TEAM GLASSES RECORDS and BLACK BLOOD AUDIO with sponsorship from JACK DANIELS, YOUNG HENRYS, BESERK & THE TRIFFID. All artwork by Brisbane's own A. JOHN BARR.

This event will take place on stolen Aboriginal land. We acknowledge the Jagera & Turrbal people as the traditional custodians and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.
