If anyone’s wondering if the “old” Atreyu is back…no, they aren’t. MORE: NOFX: Fat Mike and …
The creature returns … from the undead! Halloween Hysteria III will be smashing it out of this dimension with a massive, incredible, stupendous, and SPOOKY star-studded line-up at Mansfield Tavern RESCHEDULED to Saturday 2nd of April!
This edition features Australian alt-rock royalty SPIDERBAIT headlining this premier event, plus an entire galaxy of Australian heavy music stars, both emerging and established. This is yet another convocation of Australia’s best and LOUDEST punk, metal, and alt-rock bands, thrashing all day and all night over three huge indoor stages.
Halloween Hysteria III will move into the spiritual home of Brisbane rock ‘n’ roll, the Mansfield Tavern in the postcode on every rocker’s lips: 4122.
Bringing even more star power for the evening will insano-thrash devil-beasts KING PARROT, making their second appearance at the festival along with CLOWNS, DISENTOMB, STEPSON, REDHOOK, GRAVEMIND and many more.
SPIDERBAIT are the chart-topping, multi-platinum selling, twice-ARIA award winning, and first ever Aussie band to win the JJJ Hottest 100 alt-rock trio that have become international standard bearers for Australian alternative music. Singles such as Calypso, Glokenpop, Black Betty, and Buy Me A Pony have become iconic tracks around the country and around the world. Roaring back into life in 2013 after a long hiatus, Spiderbait are an unmissable live act and is the victorious final girl (and guys) at this special spooky event!
KING PARROT are celebrating their tenth anniversary as a metal band—and jeez they’ve had a good decade. With three massive albums under their bullet belts (including one produced by Pantera legend Philip H. Anselmo) and legions of fans up and down this Great Southern Land, these lads are non-stop thrash monsters. Grab your bonox and feel that wallop in your chest as they carve up crowds with their brand of in-your-face chainsaw massacre-grade horror-show metal.
Halloween Hysteria alumni Stepson and RedHook have sold their shows out in Brisbane as of late, making them a red-hot attraction to the festival.
As is Halloween Hysteria tradition, there’ll be prizes for best creature feature cosplay, as well as make-up stations for punters to get into the spooky spirit.
General tickets are on sale for $70 + online booking fee. VIP packages have SOLD OUT!

PRAISE FOR HALLOWEEN HYSTERIA
“Kudos Halloween Hysteria—you made some big promises and unanimously delivered.” Scenestr.com.au
“It’s always fun to witness controlled, well, somewhat controlled chaos in motion and Halloween Hysteria 2018 delivered just that. If you weren’t there you missed out. Do yourself a favour and mark it on the calendar for 2019, you won’t regret it!”
“Halloween Hysteria 2019 was an awesome time. So many great bands played, and many beers were had (with the help of the ever-supportive Young Henrys). With the amount of quality bands packed so close together, it was hard to see everyone, but I was told about the amazing sets I missed assuring me good times were had by all.”
“Halloween Hysteria was one of the best rock ‘n’ roll festivals to hit Brisbane. Yeah, we’re biased. We’re also telling the truth.”
