2018 HELLFEST PREVIEW ARTICLE
Hellfest is a festival held in the city of France in a small town called Clisson. Twinmusix are already excited about travelling back to Hellfest in 2018 from Sydney Australia for another year of press and photography.
2017 was our first ‘breath’ of Hellfest and man we had one hell of a ride! From the amazing line up, to the pool in the press area, there was no little detail that was unturned. There was an abundance of food to pick from and we can rightly say that we had never been to such a fantastic festival.
In June 2017 Hellfest delivered the bands the bands we all know and love, the line-up consisted of Linkin Park, Deep Purple, Slayer, Prophets of Rage and Aerosmith just to name a few. Aerosmith stole the lime light for this festival; Steven Tyler put on an amazing show and sang the classic hits you know and love, he performed ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’, ‘Janie’s Got a Gun’ and Love in an Elevator’ amongst many others. As we looked out into the sea of people, the crowd sang every word and it was truly phenomenal to watch Aerosmith played among so many other great bands and we will never forget that experience as long as we live.
In the past ten years ticket sales have jumped dramatically for Hellfest from the original 22,000 to 152,000. With the constant amazing line up of over 160 bands across 3 days representing every school of rock from Death Metal to Stoner Rock it’s hard not to get hooked on such a brilliant festival.
Hellfest comprises of two main stages and four minor stages, these stages rock with bands as seen in this year’s line-up most phenomenology as Aerosmith and Deep Purple. If you love Punk and Hard-Core the Warzone Stage your is your home for the weekend. If Doom and Sludge is your thing you should rock out at the Valley Stage and If black and death metal are your thing make sure you gather at Altar and the Temple stages.
In 2018 Hellfest is set to deliver another amazing line up with the festival being across the 22nd to the 24th of June, the festival always delivers the best acts and put the most legendary bands across six stages.
