Against the Grain was a heavy metal music festival held in Adelaide in Spring. The festival began as a small gathering of ten local bands organised by Lee Gardiner from Double Dragon and Jason North of Truth Corroded at the Bridgeway Hotel in the Adelaide suburb of Pooraka. In 2007, the event moved to Fowlers Live in the city and expanded to 14 bands. The show later grew to include over 20 acts from around the country. Singaporean death metal band Bhelliom became the first foreign band to play the show in 2009.

On April 7, 2010, North and Gardner announced that the festival would no longer be taking place.
