STAR SCENE: Erik Mårtensson ~ ECLIPSE ~ Appearing at GLAM FEST

STAR SCENE INTERVIEW: Erik Mårtensson, ECLIPSE discusses music genres, touring, and GLAM FEST with Mary Boukouvalas.

Brash, unashamed, loud and in your face, GLAM FEST is here Australia.


Catering to fans of throwback glam metal (think ‘80s era Sunset strip), sleaze, shock rock, hard rock and everything in between, GLAM FEST offers fans of the genre a platter of sleazy goodness.


The first instalment in January 2023 serves diversity in both sound and style and is headed by the poster boys of everything ’80s Sunset Strip, Faster Pussycat who return to Australia armed with new music and on a live show that has seen them as one of the most consistent bands of the era. They are joined by horror punk sleaze cowboy outlaws, and Australian crowd faves, Wednesday 13 who are celebrating their 20th anniversary with their new album, Horrifier, European melodic rock titans, Eclipse, the non-stop energy of rock outfit, Enuff Z’Nuff, cult glam heroes, Pretty Boy Floyd and the hooks and riffs of LA glam rockers, Tuff.


On the local front, Melbourne hard rock act, Sisters Doll join the bill nationally together with tongue in cheek theatrical rockers, Crosson.


They will be joined by a heavy hitting cast of locals in each city which includes the likes of CatalanoCassidy ParisAtomic RiotDept. Of Gloom and Star Crazy.


Organisers, Silverback Touring, say that “Glam Fest is about good music and good times and bringing both the old and new generations of such a diverse genre together on the one bill”.


If anything, GLAM FEST will have punters reaching for their leather jackets and eye liner in what will no doubt be a huge day and night out of pure unadulterated hard rock ecstasy.
