Witchdoctor Productions is honored to present to you, GREEK metal titans ROTTING CHRIST. The band has been confirmed for two shows across South Africa in July 2016. On the back of the their new album “Rituals” it will be their first time EVER on the African continent.
It is with great honor we announce the return BEHEMOTH for their 2016 South African Tour. A bigger venue, bigger show with more magic than before.
They will play two shows starting off with Bassline on the 26th March 2016 in Johannesburg and then at The Assembly on the 27th March 2016 in Cape Town.
It is with great sadness we have to inform you that WITCHFEST 2016 has been postponed indefinitely. Due to low ticket pre-sales, we were unable to secure the necessary finance needed to make it happen. Being a festival with no sponsors, pre-sales are our investors security and necessary evil of the industry.
Witchdoctor Productions CEO Shaughn Pieterse ” It has become a gamble that is not worth taking a second time, especially when the ticket sales dont back you up. Sacrificing the festival until the time is right will allow us to continue delivering tours. In the end there will be a show and who knows what the future for Witchfest will be.”
With this said we will still be hosting the Saturday 26th March with BEHEMOTH at Bassline. Joining them for the Johannesburg show will be 3 of the International Witchfest bands: Voltumna (Italy), Puvlis Et Umbra (Italy) and Diskord (Norway).We have also added a Cape Town show on the 27th at The Assembly along with Book signings at each event.
The WITCHFEST 2015 book is running slightly behind schedule. The December holidays caused some delays with obtaining certain permissions we needed for our content.
We hope to have an update before month end for you, with regards the the new release date and estimated shipping date.
