Twelve Foot Ninja


Stage: The Dogtooth Stage Day: Friday Set Time: 19:20 – 19:50

Arguably one of the most innovative heavy bands in the world today with their unique blend of hard rock and other genres rarely associated with head banging, Twelve Foot Ninja have already won the respect of heavy music lovers in the US winning Best New Talent at America’s Golden God Awards. Known for pushing the boundaries of music convention and fan engagement, the band’s music video for ‘Sick’ is a nine minute short film with three chapters leading to a dark but hilarious conclusion.

To understand how Twelve Foot Ninja developed a fervent underground following and garnered international attention, you have to see them live. They have amassed an enviable following of fiercely loyal, yet musically open-minded fans thanks to their two EPs, debut album Silent Machine, and most recently released ARIA-nominated album Outlier.
