HELLFEST ANNOUNCE 130 BANDS TO CELEBRATE TENTH ANNIVERSARY
19th – 21st June – Clisson, France
10 years! Who would have thought that 10 years after its inception, HELLFEST was to become one of the largest and most important live events in France? Gathering over 150,000 punters last year, HELLFEST reached a landmark.
19th, 20th and 21st of June 2015 will mark a symbolic edition of the festival. One of the founders, Ben Barbaud, wanted to invite artists that have made a mark on the metal genre over the last decade and so has booked timeless bands such as Scorpions, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top and Slash and Airbourne for hard rock lovers.
They will be joined by 90’s seminal bands such as Korn, Marilyn Manson, Killing Joke, Lamb of God, In Flames, not to mention world class thrash, black, death metal, stoner, punk, hardcore bands such as Venom, Anthrax, Children of Bodom, Nuclear Assault, Exodus, Satyricon, Arch Enemy, Meshuggah, Saint Vitus, Envy, NOFX, the Exploited, Dead Kennedys, Madball and more.
Shortly after the release of their Number 2 album ‘The Gray Chapter’, HELLFEST is excited to announce Slipknot will be joining the bill along with Faith No More, who have just announced they will be making a new album. Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Rise Against & Body Count are HELLFEST exclusives in France.
Saturday night proceedings will be closed by an epic pyro show that will endeavor to reflect the last 10 years of HELLFEST.
Below are the first 130 bands to be announced out of a final line up of 160. It certainly looks like this is going to be an anniversary to remember!
