Hellfest 2016

Mon dieu, sacre bleu and all that… The first acts for France’s Hellfest have been announced and boy are they pulling out the big guns. Leading the fray are none other than Birmingham’s finest, Black Sabbath with Rammstein, Korn, Megadeth, Ghost, Slayer and Bring Me the Horizon following up the charge.

Metal fans thinking of attending should get ready for a serious case of option paralysis as even more big names are more than making up the numbers here. Other acts include Within Temptation, King Diamond, Twisted Sister, Foreigner, and Anthrax, giving a line-up that reads like a who’s who of the Metal scene.


Prepare to be blown away on a sonic wave with this crazy line-up:

Now in its 10th year, Hellfest has managed to overcome serious opposition from religious groups, becoming a political champion of so-called Extreme music. It continues to enjoy its place in the sun as the biggest Metal festival in Europe covering every sub-genre of the scene from Viking Metal through to Crust Punk and Death N Roll.

Metal gods including the Iron Maiden and Slipknot have all graced this stage and now’s your chance to become part of this slice of the underworlds.

Hellfest 2016 takes place in Clisson, France from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th June 2016. For tickets and more information see our devilish Hellfest guide.
