les fest



Les Fest have finalised the line-up for this year's festival and the press release reads as follows:

"And so it comes to pass that we complete the line up in this our 6th announcement for Les-Fest 2013. The final additions take us to 62 live acts over two stages. No clashes on Friday and no clashes after 6pm on Saturday or Sunday.

"First up we are delighted to announce the addition of Newcastle based Rock/Metal/Punk act Def Con One. Described by Bloodstock Festival as coming across like a bar fight between Machine Head, Slayer and Pantera these guys are going to be in good company on Saturday evening.

"Closer to home we are stoked to tell you that Friday's stage will be graced by fast rising, highly acclaimed Scottish Black Metal act Cnoc An Tursa. "Their debut album, 'The Giants Of Auld' has been a long time coming and does not disappoint, glorious." Metal Hammer.

"Over on stage two, which has now been christened the Metal Angels Stage, and held in association with Metal Angels for Charities, we bring back a band that blew everyone away in 2012; Holyhead based band, Inferno. Unplugged but mean and moody, we witnessed the lads live recently performing an acoustic set and they proved you don't need to be amped up to ROCK!

"Back to the main stage now and we would like to introduce you to Hell Is Harmony, hailing from Dundee these Metal/Hardcore/Rappers offer up a truly unique experience and we can feel the ground bounce already. At the time of writing, in the semi-finals of Bloodstock Metal 2 the Masses, we see a very bright future for these lads.

"Jumping back to stage two we are joined by the Dawgheads an acoustic side project of Attica Rage bassist Colin Wilson, expect the unexpected and a few surprises too. Continuing with stage two we are delighted to bring you Josephine Sillars. Influenced by Regina Spektor, Bob Dylan and Nina Simone, Josephine writes quirky, complicated songs about contemporary life. Taking film, television and everyday culture as her inspiration, she weaves songs around Doctor Who, Cult Movies and many other subjects suitable for our Rock Metal crowd.

"Following Josephine on the same stage will be Scott Cowie, listening to the likes of John Martyn and Alex Harvey, Scott is a highly accomplished and entertaining acoustic guitar player and yeah a damn fine session drummer to boot – we might just set a kit up on stage. Finally on stage two we are joined by Kariss Andrews and her band. Originally booked for the main stage under the name Urban Myth, they had to withdraw but Kariss was determined to keep a slot at this years festival and we are very happy to have her.

"So all in all it is shaping up to be an incredible weekend and still for only £35 for the weekend, £45 with camping and £15 for a day ticket. Day tickets will go on sale soon but will be extremely limited."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
