PLAYLIST – The metal festival in Clisson, Loire-Atlantique, unveiled Friday, October 30 the names of nearly 140 artists that will host from June 17 to 19 The full 3-day pass are already sold.
No need for intensive communication to bring festivalgoers metal fans in Clisson, Loire-Atlantique. Hellfest has yet measured once all the power of his reputation.
Before unveiling of a sudden the 137 artists of its programming, Friday, October 30, the festival had already passed the three quarter of its 3-day pass. And after its announcement, the rest flew in under two. Seven months before the beginning of its 11th edition, scheduled from 17 to 19 June 2016.
Year after year, the Hellfest plays elbow to elbow with another metal festival of reference, Wacken, Germany whose seats for the next edition are sold out at the end of the previous one. Too bad for the spectators who improvise, but proof is that the Hellfest is one of the major festivals in France. It’s not only revealed its program that will lie to his fame. A good way to counter the announcement of the creation of the Download Festival, another event dedicated to metal which will be launched in Paris just before the weekend of June 10 to 12
Another 20 names are missing
As usual, the festival clissonnais manage to bring together big names of hard rock and metal genres: Black Sabbath, Rammstein, The Offspring, Slayer , Megadeth, Korn … The first could not miss this great rout while they perform their farewell tour. The second went master of the genre with their metal in the language of Goethe. As for the third, they regain their French public in another context as Rock en Seine, where they were scheduled late August.
No Metallica or AC / DC, however, two key groups still missing Hellfest, to the dismay of fans as the organizers. Hellfest then put on less familiar faces to the general public but widely appreciated insider: Abbath, one of the leading representatives of the black metal solo that starts after releasing the Immortal group; Sick Of It All, singer of hardcore with Walls of Jericho, accustomed place; heavy metal supergroup Down, led by Phil Anselmo innarêtable; Primordial and Moonsorrow, emblems of viking metal or Taake, Norwegians who had controversy by wearing a swastika at a concert in Germany in 2007.
The list goes on. Enough to turn heads as they prepare to make headbangs madness. And yet, twenty additional names are to be announced.
