Southern Darkness Festival

Scrapyard Magazine is proud to announce the first annual Southern Darkness Festival in Tampa, FL on August 23, 2014. Tampa has always been recognized as one of the cradles of extreme music, and the SDF promoters hope to honor this tradition and carry it forward with a Festival that represents so much of the music that labors in the darkness.


This year, the line-up consists of:



A Storm of Light


Weekend Nachos



Coke Bust

Black Tusk



Fall of Rauros

Lord Mantis

Scrog– Reunion Show!

Mouth of the Architect



Everything Went Black

Order of the Owl

Immortal Bird

Strong Intention



Set and Setting


Traitor Crucifix



This one day festival will take place at multiple venues (The Orpheum, Crowbar, Ybor Live) in historic Ybor City. The festival is centered around two guiding principles: that people should be stoked on all of the bands playing, keeping a kind of coherent “narrative,” and that ticket prices should be kept low. Advance tickets are $35 and day of show prices $40. Although some of the bands fall within different genres, we believe there is a common commitment that will appeal to anyone interested in extreme forms of music.
