This is it folx, it is truly the end of an era for us. After six years of goth parties at Badlands Bar, the time has come for RITUALS to bid adieu to the Batcave, but not without giving it one hell of a send-off party!
Join us as on Saturday 2nd December as we return to the depths of the Batcave one last time and celebrate all things dark and gothic via live music, DJs, fashion and art in a safe space for all 🕷

Upon the Badlands Batcave sits the main stage, featuring a live music line-up to awaken the dead:

Once known as Rag ‘n’ Bone, this Perth four-piece has been an electrifying whirlwind in our city’s music scene. With enthralling vocals, brooding basslines, serrated guitars, and high-energy drumming, their sound is dark, intense, and truly unique. Over the years, they’ve crossed the boundaries of post-punk, political rock, and alt-folk, echoing the influences of Savages, Sonic Youth, and The Drones.
As we gather in the Batcave for our grand finale, let us pay homage to their dark and mesmerizing intensity, for this night marks the last performance of NEW TALK. It’s a moment to witness, to be enraptured, and to bid farewell to a band that has left an indelible mark on our city’s music history.
Also playing on the main stage, are :
