MUSIC NEWS: The Coffs Coast is set to ignite with the Hell On High Water Festival next month!
Come hell or high water, live music is slowly finding its way back to our lives as we all try to regroup after 2020 and the debilitating COVID pandemic. And amongst some of the incredible events springing to life in the Aussie music world of late, 2021 has seen a slew of local crews bring rock and metal to the Coffs Harbour Coast, with Hell On High Water festival bringing the heavy vibes with gusto on Saturday June 12.
With local businesses Sawtell Concreting, Fluke & Fern Marketing Agency and Big Grigg Events, the Red-C Event Centre in Coffs will be bursting at the seams next month with a dedicated line-up of heavy sounds not seen in the area in over a decade.
Leading the sweltering lineup for Hell On High Water is none other than Byron Bay lords From Crisis To Collapse and Sydney hard-hitters Astrodeath on co-headlining duties, with supports courtesy of Minds End, The Outcome, Bakasura and Flying Giant. And curating this heavy as hell lineup is Hell On High Water's founder and lead singer of metallers Bakasura Robbie Ollier who will also be throwing down on the day.
"We’ve been hanging to pull together a sick day of epic bands, to showcase some real local talent & get everybody out again to see some live music. There are so many good crew here & there are loads more bands we want to give the opportunity to play on a festival stage, so make sure you get your tickets quick so we can start planning the next Hell on High Water!" -
Robbie Ollier, Hell On High Water founder
Ready to stamp its footprint on the world of Aussie hard rock by causing an unholy ruckus on the Coffs Coast, Hell On High Water also ultimately will help celebrate and support the live music scene by staging a series of ongoing festivals as the industry claws its way back post-COVID isolation and recurrent border closures.
