Augustus Metal Festival is a rock / metal festival that is planned and organised by the band Wrust, the festival is an international cultural exchange inclined with rock music and is self sponsored by Wrust.
The festival started in 2009 and featured a whole host of Botswanan and South Africa bands. It came about as a chance to bring back rock and metal music to the locals here in Botswana through the "taking the music to the people campaign".
This year we will see two bands from South Africa headlining the festival, these bands are Boargazm and Bleeding Spawn respectively, also six bands from Botswana will be supporting the acts of the night with the likes of Wrust, Stane, Skinflint, Remuda, Aive And Bolder and Metal Orizon.
The show will be held at Bull 'n' bBush garden bar in Gaborone City, Botswana. Tickets are selling at 70pula in advance and 100pula at the gate. CD's, videos and merchandise will also be available at a reasonable price.
