HELLFEST… It’s Happening Again

In the title of this article, we are simply stating that Hellfest is finally happening again after two years being left-out without our precious HELL. Two years without Hellfest, no thanks to you Covid and all your ugly relatives.

In four months we’ll be back in our favorite spot in the world, Hellfest Open Air.

We have so much to look forward to, two years is way too long and since Hellfest started in 2006, it has been a nonstop roller coster and getting bigger each year. If there’s anything we’ve learned over the years, it’s that this amazing festival is not going anywhere no matter the circumstances.

Ben and his team never fail to impress their loyal fans, and I say loyal fans because they never fail when the festival needs them, they kept their tickets for two years without asking for a refund and the moment has come to enjoy this ride one more time.

Fans held onto their tickets like they were lottery tickets, that’s how important they are to each of us

This only demonstrates the love and support the heavy-metal community and fans of Hellfest have for this haven

Not only is this anniversary special because it’s happening again, but:

  • It’s a return after two years, which is why I titled it “it is happening again” Two years seems so very long, and also, it’s a nice reference. Let us know if you catch it.

  • It is going to be massive, like real massive not just like every other year because usually Hellfest is expanding year after another, but this year it’s gonna be a double bill, Hellfest is set to return and run throughout two consecutive weekends , a complete 7 days of HELL with over 350 bans, isn’t that beyond amazing?

For Ben and his team to pull-off such an organization after two years of no income, no government support, and being turned down by their insurer, is just beyond incredible. It’ll be a 15th anniversary edition to go down in history and we are fortunate to be a part of Hellfest.
It sounds crazy when we say 15th anniversary. In truth, it should have been the 17th, but time surely stood still for us.

Here are the complete line-up wit the official running order:

System Of A Down Tours Europe 2017

After years of a long hiatus and several reunions, System of a Down, the highly notable Armenian-American metal band that made incredibly influential music throughout the years and releasing their last album “Hypnotize” back in 2005, announced their tour dates in Europe playing selected festivals and headlining some for this summer of June/July 2017!

In a recent interview, frontman Serj Tankian revealed that SOAD have been communicating with the possibility of writing new material. “We’re communicating and trying to see if we can bring our material together,” Serj said. “There’s definitely a lot of communication going on, a lot of back and forth. I can’t make a statement in terms of whether we’re going to have a record or not, because we haven’t gone into the studio and done it. But there’s definitely communication going on, songs being played to each other and all that stuff, so it’s good. We’ll see what happens. I think it would be great to create something brand new in a new direction. It would be very exciting, but everyone’s got to be on board, on the same page, and it’s got to be done in a way so that everyone is happy. If we can do that, we’ll do it.”

Check out SOAD’s memorable performance in Yerevan-Armenia (2015):
