They have petitioned online, complained on the radio, the internet, in the newspapers and even on the tv. They may even picket the shows on the day. It has NOT stopped the FANS and it has most certainly NOT stopped us. Every single person coming down to the shows, we are truly grateful for your support and for standing in what we believe in, Artistic Freedom.It was never about religion for us, it was always about artistic freedom. This show and many others like it are a victory for that cause.

Founded 1990 in Helsinki, AMORPHIS have worked their way to the apex of the European metal scene and won international renown. The band’s name, derived from “amorphous” (no determinate form or shape), has been programmatic for the pioneers of Finnish metal over the course of their 20-year career. Setting a diverse, intricate and unique style to their musical approach, often being described as “ahead of their time”, the band accrued a large and loyal international fan base.

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.
With a recent incident at The Mercury Live (Click Read More) and the need for an increased capacity, we have had to do the following. Cape Town – Your new venue is THE ASSEMBLY . The date is now the 20/12/2015 (A Sunday, its holidays).
If you read on, we had no choice, apart from cancel or shift the date. We apologize to anyone who cant now make it or who are inconvenienced by the shift. Lets Rock n Roll.
Well 2014 has finally reached the end of its ropes. And what a year it has been for all, BUT before we welcome in 2015 with a sonic onslaught, it might be best just to recap what actually happened this year.
