Evil Invaders is an underground metal festival held in Sydney over the Queens Birthday weekend, booked and promoted by The Coffin's Slave. From fairly low-key beginnings in Melbourne in 2006, it later became a highly anticipated underground festival. US/Brazilian band Inquisition headlined the 2012 event, which was held over three nights and two venues. Four international acts played the 2013 festival and there was also a special appearance by Dave Tice performing Buffalo songs. Evil Invaders is no longer an active festival.
