Covering an event is always a fun thing to do; but covering the biggest metal festivals in the world is a completely different experience. This year, Metal Bell’s team had the intention, the will, and the enthusiasm to make sure that we cover those festivals for you so that you can experience a slight taste of how it felt like to be there.
It isn’t always easy to get a press pass to these kinds of festivals, especially Wacken. Honestly speaking though, some were easier to get than local festival passes. We would like to take a moment to thank Ziad Bardawil from the classical Metal band ZiX, who gave one of his Wacken VIP tickets to our reporter Nahla Sindbad who did a “Marathon of Festivals” covering the 4 biggest festivals of this year.
Since it is every Metal Head’s dream to go to one of the biggest festivals in the world, expect full reviews about Hellfest, Wacken, Bloodstock and Motocultor in our upcoming issue [Issue 6(now Available)]. For now, enjoy a few pictures & the videos that were shot by Nahla Sindbad.
CHECK OUT OUR VIDEO SHOT BY OUR OWN TEAM MEMBER NAHLA SINDBAD TO GIVE YOU A LIVE TASTE AND INSIDER LOOK OF THOSE FESTIVALS
This is a picture of the Bloodstock frame from the signing session where you can find signatures of: “Dimmu Borgir”, “Emperor”, “Lacuna Coil”, and many more.
It is not the first time that we see a Lebanese flag at an international festival; there are some videos you can find on YouTube such as Manowar, Metallica and Iron Maiden concerts where the Lebanese flag can be seen waving in the crowds. This year, at Hellfest – France, our reporter Nahla Sindbad was overwhelmed to see the Lebanese flag shining between the crowds, so she took this picture during Behemoth show and sent it directly to us. She was really happy to see the flag there, showing the whole world that we have a huge and pumping Metal scene in the Middle East.
Also Metal Bell Magazine officially covered the following events:
