Indonesia is the World's largest Island country, with more than 13.000 islands with over 260.000.000 million people. It is the World's 4th most populous country.
The local metal scene began to grow with the rock invasion back in the 1970´s.
4 decades later, metal music is huge and spread out over the vast Indonesian archipelago. Metal is not only the strongest force in the independent music movement, but also a force to be reckoned with in the general society. We estimate that there are more than 200.000 metalheads in Indonesia, spread out over the whole territory - making the Indonesian metal scene the biggest in Asia.
In the past 2 decades so many local metal festivals has been held in Indonesia, making the scenes bigger and bigger time after time. Indonesia has loads of great metal bands, all spawned from a gloriously united and passionate scene, sprung from the very humblest of DIY origins. Now it´s starting to make an impact on the international metal stage.
2016 is the first year of Indonesian participation in the Wacken Metal Battle. Bringing the Wacken Metal Battle to Indonesia means giving a chance to many Indonesian metal warriors to spread the word on the Wacken stage.
The applications for the competition can be send from December 2016 till the end of January 2017. And who is the lucky band going to Wacken? We will see after the Battle of May 2016.
The schedule for the competitions will soon follow. For further information please check
