After last year’s success, metal all over Australia will join forces for the second time in one special night: Metal United Down Under (MUDU) unites bands, promoters, venues and metal heads across the continent in one big event. Last year, promoters in 13 cities in 7 states organised shows in the night of 29 November – all under the same banner. In total, 90 bands played MUDU 2014.
For MUDU 2015 on 10 October, the following 15 promoters in 13 cities (and 6 states) have already confirmed to join the Metal-Roos MUDU project: Metal In Bendigo Promotions & MusicMan Megastore (Bendigo, VIC),Molotov Enterprises & Photography (Bunbury, WA), MMK Music Promotions (Brisbane, QLD), Crowned Ruckus (Bundaberg, QLD), YACROCKCAFE (Byron Bay, NSW), Chud (Canberra, ACT), Minute To Silence(Darwin, NT), Megaton Music (Melbourne, VIC), Miss Kelly Productions (Nambour, QLD), MetalCastle Promotions (Newcastle, NSW), Metal Glass Promotions & Graveyard Promotions (Perth, WA), Metal-Roos(Sydney, NSW) and The Dirty Headbangers (Wollongong, NSW)… and there are more to come.
MUDU’s aim is to give Australian artists a big stage for exposure and raise awareness for Australian metal nationally and internationally. For this purpose, MUDU has recruited media partners and supporters to help spreading the word. The panel of media partners so far consists of international webzine Metal Temple(www.metal-temple.com), the German metal magazine legend Legacy (www.legacy.de) and the German newcomer metal magazine Deaf Forever (www.deaf-forever.de).
