Thrash Metal Bash in Dubai

Headbanging tribute to one of metal's top subgenres

Can’t wait for big hitters such as Evanescence and Savatage founder Jon Oliva to bring some rawk to our fair city? Get warmed up for the upcoming metal onslaught with this tribute to one of metal’s top subgenres, aka thrash (not sure what we’re talking about? Check our handy guide here). We’ve been warned to expect a ‘headbanging frenzy’ with a string of local bands, including Primo and Edge of Reason (pictured), plus classic video clips on a big screen. In the words of organisers Metal Asylum: ‘Get ready to buy a neck brace – this one will be epic.’ Ouch.

Dhs50. 9pm-3am, Friday June 15. Greenbelt Lounge, Astoria Hotel, Bur Dubai (04 353 4300).
