hard rock hell

The three day Metal festival that is Hard Rock Hell (HRH) may have just finished for this year, and no sooner had those who enjoyed the weekend arrived home than the organisers, Chic Festivals, confirmed nearly a dozen acts for the next event which will be held in November.

The ever-mighty Saxon and The Dead Daisies will be headlining HRH XII but HRH are particularly proud to announce Thursday's headliners – Michael Schenker Fest.

Michael Schenker has mesmerised the rock community since the 1970s and solidified his place in music history with his distinctive guitar playing style. His playing has proven to be inimitable and hugely influential for several generations of guitar players.

Recently, Michael has been recording with his band Michael Schenker Fest who are preparing for the release of their forthcoming studio album, 'Resurrection', which will be released on Friday 2nd March. Michael Schenker Fest will be fielding a line-up of legends: original M.S.G musicians Ted Mckenna (drums), Chris Glen (bass) and Steve Mann (guitar), also M.S.G. singers Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley, and the supremely talented Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock frontman Doogie White.

"If you didn't book early, you're going to miss out on some amazing acts, as well as the usual HRH fun and fellowship," says HRH's CEO Jonni Davis.

"We've been totally sold out since last November. What else would you expect? We're Europe's leading residential festival provider! And with a line-up like this? If you're not already on board, check the website, call the hotline and join the waiting list. You might get lucky. Failing that, you'll need a miracle."

Based at the The Hafan y Môr Holiday Park outside the Welsh town of Pwllheli, Hard Rock Hell offers a range of bands split over the three days. The festival really has a 'something for everyone' feel about it, and the fact it sells out every year has a lot to say about the venue, the entertainment and the organisation.

HRH XI will take place between Thursday 8th and Sunday 11th November 2018, amidst the beautiful landscape of North Wales. Once again the HRH community will come together for the ultimate mash-up of loud, live music and malarkey that makes up an HRH event, along with the quality accommodation you'd expect from Europe's leading residential festivals.
