Direct Underground Festival: This weekend + Direct Touring Adopts a Bunny Rabbit!

Melbourne based Direct Touring have been bringing some of the metal underground’s best bands to Australian cities for years now. Five years in fact.

In 2017 Direct Touring will be celebrating their fifth anniversary and to celebrate that milestone, they are throwing one monster of a metal party!

The Direct Underground Fest is a gathering of their all time favourite bands, some they have toured before while others they have always wanted to work with and now are!

Direct Touring has always been about quality over quantity and the Direct Underground Fest is set to be one of the greatest metal gatherings of the year!

Come and bear witness to the insanity..

Thanks to the unwavering support Australian metal fans have shown Direct Touring we have been able to celebrate our birthday with the Direct Underground Festival!

Direct Underground is the party and we are looking forward to it; but we have decided that your support for us means that we can in turn support others.
We have made donations to the following charities as part of our birthday celebrations, as we are in a position to help others in need:

The Song Room is an Australian charity whose vision is that all children have an equal opportunity to participate in music and the arts.
They partner with schools and communities to create arts programs to balance the scales and bring us the next generation of musicians and artists. We think everyone should have the opportunity at a better start in life.

You can find more information on The Song Room here:

Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage is a no-kill pet rabbit rescue, providing care and medical treatment for stray, abused and pound overflow rabbits.
They rely on donations and volunteers to help them care for and find new homes for all that come to their door. They helped us find one of our own brutal Direct Touring bunnies (Pickles), need we say more?
