  HELLFEST ANNOUNCE ANOTHER BATCH OF BANDS FOR MEGA JUNE FESTIVAL
6th February 2012

hellfest



The D day has come and all the soldiers are now gathered for the final assault that will at last enable us to conquer the new territory in which Hellfest will take place for several years to come.

Victory is a foregone conclusion with over 60 new bands backing us up, who should quickly be joined by legions of troopers from the Metal Nation! The last 56 bands are:

GUNS N ROSES, MEGADETH, MOTLEY CRUE, REFUSED, DROPKICK MURPHYS, BIOHAZARD, TURBONEGRO, WITHIN TEMPTATION, ABYSSE, ALL SHALL PERISH, ARSON ANTHEM, ASCENSION, BEHEMOTH, BELENOS, BENIGHTED, BIG BUSINESS, BLACK BOMB A, BUKOWSKI, CANCER BATS, CELESTE, D-A-D, DISCHARGE, DOOMRIDERS, EDGUY, ENTOMBED, GOTTHARD, HANK III, HAMLET, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, IHSAHN, INSOMNIUM, JESUS CROST, KORITNI, LASTING VALUES, LITURGY, LOCK UP, MOONSORROW, NECROPHAGIA, OBITUARY, OCTOBER FILE, SATYRICON, SEBASTIAN BACH, SHINING, SUBLIME CADAVERIC, DECOMPOSITION, SUFFOCATION, SUNNO))), THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX, THE BRONX, THE OBSESSED, THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE, TRAGEDY, TREPALIUM, UNEARTH, UNSANE, URIAH HEEP, VITAMIN X plus ten other bands. ALL PIG MUST DIE and WHITECHAPEL have cancelled.

Once the final phase of the plan is done and that more than 30,000 troopers will have gathered on the morning of June 15, 2012, the 160 bands will deploy over six different zones of the new area which is twice as big as the last battlefield from 2006 to 2011. The bands will be dispatched on these six areas according to their musical style and importance. Seventeen bands per day including headliners will play on the two main external stages Mainstage 1 and Mainstage 2.

A double tent will host two other stages with 18 bands per day. One of them is called The Altar and will offer the best Death Metal and Grindcore acts. The other one is called The Temple and it is on this stage that Pagan and Black Metal bands will play.

Under The Valley tent you will find the fifth stage, where you can enjoy nine bands every day playing Stoner, Doom, Sludge, Psychedelic and other Metal Alternative...

Finally nine bands per day will also perform at The Warzone which will be dedicated to Punk, Hardcore, and D-beat. At the entrance of the festival you will find the Metal Corner, where the hostilities will begin at 5pm on the Thursday with eight bands as well as DJs who will play their evil playlists every night from Thursday to Sunday.

We invite all troopers who want to join us and discover more information about this year's line-up and the new festival layout mention above to go to the the new Hellfest 2012 website by clicking here.

With the new website open you can now purchase your 1-day ticket for €66 (without booking fees). Three-day passes are still available at the price of €439 (without booking fees) but be fast because sales are really good and for sure, Hellfest 2012 will once again be a success!

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.
