RAMfest announce The Black Dahlia Murder as headliners for both Cape Town and Pretoria shows and 2020 is shaping up to be a hardrock metal dream.

RAMFEST are beyond excited to announce death metal giants The Black Dahlia Murder as headliners for the 2020 editions of the festival – Cape Town on the 13th of March and Johannesburg on the 14th of March. They’ll also be playing two reunion shows from South African rock royalty Van Coke Kartel.

The diverse lineup of REAL ALTERNATIVE MUSIC is rounded off by local heavyweights including Facing the Gallows, Peasant, Man as Machine, Newtown Knife Gang, The Valley, Stoker, and Truth & it’s Burden to name a few.

“Van Coke Kartel hasn’t played a full set since 2017 on our final tour. Ramfest is resurrecting the Kartel for their Cape Town and Pretoria events. It is also a massive privilege to co-headline with death metal kings Black Dahlia Murder.  Very amped to play at Ram! Can’t wait!”, comments Francois Van Coke on the shows.
