The Kraken is Alive presents the biggest Pirate Party Rock band in the world, Alestorm, at this year’s Pirate Fest. Pirate Fest promises to be the biggest themed music-and-alcohol festival this side of the Caribbean.
Alestorm are a Pirate Metal band from Scotland. They describe themselves as ‘a drunken band of pirates on an epic quest to drink your beer, steal your rum, and be the greatest damn band that ever sailed The Seven!‘. With their infectious sound and silly antics, they always bring a party.
Supporting acts include local bands I Believe in Giants, Dirty Moonshine and Newtown Knife Gang. SA Punk legends Tweak also perform.
Pirate Fest is a unique festival that celebrates all things alcohol, pirates and rock n’ roll. There are a number of pre-parties starting on 23 February that lead up to the main event.
No U18s permitted.
