South Africa RAMFEST Announce 2023 Headliners Enter:Shikari and The Ocean

posted in: Local news | 0

South Africas most eagerly awaited alternative, rock, and metal festival RAMFEST is
gearing up for an explosive return, and fans are in for a treat with the announcement of not
one but two exceptional international headline acts. This year's festival promises an
unforgettable experience as it welcomes ENTER:SHIKARI and The Ocean to grace its

prestigious stage.

In addition to the international headliners, the festival proudly presents an incredible lineup
of South Africa's finest alternative, rock, and metal bands. Representing the local talent and
reflecting the rich musical landscape of the country, these bands are poised to deliver
unforgettable performances that will leave audiences craving for more. Among the local acts
gracing the festival stage are Facing The Gallows, Jack Parow, Peasant, We Kill
Cowboys, Sunken State, Fallen Prophets, Acid Magus, Straatligkinders and many
more. From emerging artists to established favourites, these bands represent the diverse
range of styles and influences within the South African music community.

Since forming in 2003 at school in their hometown of St Albans, UK, Enter Shikari have, thus
far, released seven full-length studio albums; TAKE TO THE SKIES (2007), COMMON
DREADS (2009), A FLASH FLOOD OF COLOUR (2012), THE MINDSWEEP (2015), THE
SPARK (2017). NOTHING IS TRUE & EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE (2020), and the latest,
A KISS FOR THE WHOLE WORLD which was released Friday 21st April 2023.

THE OCEAN

Coalescing around a shared vision of limitless sonic exploration and heaviness, The Ocean
is a group of artists that has released 10 studio albums in different constellations since 2001.
Right off the back of North American & European tours with Karnivool and Katatonia, the
band released a brand-new studio album in May 2023: 'Holocene' sees The Ocean add a
closing chapter to their palaeontology-inspired album series, presenting a gear shift towards
the electronic world while redefining heaviness at the same time. The album entered the
official German album charts at #15 and was the 2ndbest selling album of all genres on

Bandcamp in the week of release.

The Berlin-based post metal juggernaut toured the world extensively over the course of the
past 20years, from Europe to North & South America to Australia, Russia & Asia, and
performed at open airfestivals like Wacken, Roskilde, Oya, Hellfest, Summer Breeze,
Resurrection, Pukkelpop, Dour as well as at boutique festivals like Roadburn or Arctangen.
