The line-up is final at last. In 2012 we bring you not two, not three, but four international acts! RAMfest has upped the game and we are proud to announce that AWOLNATION(USA) will be joining the international line-up together with In Flames (Sweden), Infected Mushroom (Israel) and drum and bass master NETSKYft. MC Darrison (Belgium and UK).

SA fans were thrilled when RAMfest announced the first headliner In Flames in November last year. In Flames vocalist Anders Friden says that the band is excited about their upcoming performances at RAMfest (JHB and CT):

“We are really looking forward to touring South Africa. There are many countries that we have visited many times over, but this will be a completely new experience for us. Get ready to hear some delicious metal brewed and matured in Sweden; we hope to see many of you!”

Infected Mushroom and NETSKY ft. MC Darrison were announced earlier this year and with AWOLNATION alsojoining the line up, South Africa is in for a phenomenal treat. With the help of our sponsors we have managed to put together the ultimate alternative playground.
