Welcome to the 35th anniversary of Cold Meat Industry!
Over the past year, we’ve been racking our brains for ways to host yet another anniversary festival – but without repeating ourselves. Easier said than done, considering not only our first CMI festival in 2017 but also the success of the two Waves of Darkness cruises. Furthermore, if one is to draw any meaningful conclusions from Waves of Darkness 2021, the pandemic edition, it is that this type of music is best enjoyed in venues where people can enjoy the show while sitting down.
The only way to reconcile these two notions was to scale down the entire concept while upgrading the festival location to one of the best venues in Sweden. Södra Teatern – a small theatre in the Stockholm city centre – an architectural and cultural gem that opened to the public already back in 1853. For the past two centuries, the venue has hosted countless actors, musicians, and all manner of different performers. Come the winter of 2022, the very same stage will serve as the exhaust pipe as industrial darkness rises over the Swedish capital!
No more than 366 tickets in total will be released; this includes both two-day and one-day tickets. To put things into perspective, that’s about one-third of the capacity for the 2017 edition. There will be a 30-minute-break between each concert. Note that due to the nature of this venue, we will have to be rather strict in enforcing the festival’s sitting policy. Tickets will not be assigned seat numbers, so occupancy comes down to a “first come, first serve” basis. Once all seats on the ground floor have been filled, the remaining attendees will be directed to the balcony. Note that individual seats cannot be blocked or reserved across multiple performances.
With the technicalities out of the way, we’d like to invite you back to Stockholm to enjoy the following live acts in this fantastic historical venue:
Saturday the 19th of November: 16:30 Morthound 17:45 Deutsch Nepal 19:00 Sephiroth 20:30 Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio 22:15 MZ.412
Sunday the 20th of November: 15:30 Lamia Vox 16:45 Raison D’Etré 18:00 In Slaughter Natives 19:20 Brighter Death Now 20:45 Arcana 22:20 Trepaneringsritualen
Please note that single-day tickets cannot be changed or refunded if the bands change the day of the show. Only two-day-tickets grant access to the after-party that starts after the concert on Sunday at Södra Teatern at 23:30.
We hope to see a lot of familiar faces in November!
