Beermageddon is entering into its third year and the UK Metal festival shows no signs of slowing down. Due to the massive success of the previous two years, it is once again offering Metal fans a superb line up for 2014 and the festival is on track to be a complete sell out.

After two successful sold out festivals in 2012 and 2013 Beermageddon returns over the August Bank Holiday 2014 to Stoke Prior Sports & Country Club with 3 days of Hard and Heavy Metal!

Bigger and Louder than ever before, the bands that have been announced for 2014 are a testament to just how big this festival has become.

Jim Beerman, organiser of the festival said "When you look over the last couple of years, what started as an idea for a small festival has grown way beyond our wildest dreams, heralded by fans, the media and the bands who have played in the past, to the point of being described as "legendary", together we have created a festival that bands want to be part of and music fans across the globe want to attend.

"This has put us in a position where we can bring not only the breaking talent from across the UK and into Europe, but also established names known by all. With the likes of thrash legends Annihilated and Virus gracing the stage last year, and the mighty Lawnmower Deth already confirmed for 2014, Beermageddon has fast become the festival bands want to play, with applications to play numbering in the thousands.

"Beermageddon was born with the old school style festival ethos at the forefront, affordable, quality and a festival experience for all ages, and when I look out over the crowd and see three generations of fans, from ages 6 - 60 together loving the music, I know we have achieved that ethos, fans united as a metal family, and we continue to grow with that unity in mind.

"After sell out shows in 2012 and 2013, 2014 promises to be our biggest yet, and with so many bands still to be confirmed on the line up and over 50% of tickets sold already, we once again look to be hitting capacity months before the event.

Bigger and louder than ever before, Beermageddon is here to stay!"

The bands that have been booked so far are:

Lawnmower Deth
Divine Chaos
Designs of Chaos
The Starry Wisdom Cult

More bands will be announced over the coming months.

£40 (£38 + £2 BOOKING FEE)



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 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.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
