Storm The Gates Festival is thundering towards New Zealand

Limp Bizkit, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendenciesand (hed) P.E. all under one roof, back-to-back!

New Zealand is bracing itself for the arrival of some of the most iconic acts in rock, with theStorm The Gates Festival less than two weeks away.

Presented by the Rock, and boasting a star-studded line-up, which includes international headliners Limp Bizkit, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendencies and (hed P.E.),Storm The Gates is being held in Auckland on Saturday, March 17.

Flying the flag for homegrown rock is City of Souls, Skinny Hobos and Written By Wolves.

Festival organisers have redesigned the site layout to now host an impressive indoor stage at Trusts Arena, which over the years has hosted some of the world’s biggest acts - from Slipknot and Muse, to System Of A Down and Alice Cooper.

Punters are guaranteed to not miss any of the action, with bands playing back-to-back across the day with massive production.

The festival vibe will spill outdoors, where there will be rides, food and chill-out time for anyone seeking refuge from the rock ‘n’ roll havoc inside.

With less than two weeks to go, those wanting to catch these heavyweights of rock - under one roof, on just one day - will need to get in quickly.
