The mini festival Death Awaits announces the final line-up, here’s the official final poster:
The festival will be held at:
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.
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:
Three hours from Paris in my car, it’s probably the longest ride as I drive, I can’t wait to be on site, I count every minute while my car player is shuffling a playlist that I create each year based on the bands playing Hellfest.Continue reading

Every year, the lovely people at AUB host their two-day outdoors festival which brings together people from all over Beirut to enjoy the show. For the rock scene in Lebanon, it’s a great idea, because even people who are uninterested in Rock will end up watching a few bands play and will discover previously unexplored music tastes.
Without further ado, this is what an entrance ticket of 5,000 LL will net you.

The organizers issued the following official statement:
We wish Ozzy a fast recovery free of post-operative complications, and hope he will be back to his full powers by the time of the farewell show.
