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.

This year myself (Amelia Thompson) from Twinmusix was hooked on the main stage and I ran back and forth to the press area for a press conferences. I enjoyed every moment of shooting bands such as Steel Panther, Ministry and Deep Purple just to name a few. The experience was surreal; everyone was so nice and amazing to talk to. Hellfest creates an amazing community, I’m not surprised people return every year, Hell I’m from Sydney Australia and you know I’ll be going back for one hell of a ride.
Additionally Elizabeth Thompson my sister from Twinmusix was in the press area talking to bands about what’s happening next for their future career. She loved interacting with different artists and is excited to go back next year. Hellfest organisers certainly know how to hold a festival, with a vast selection of food stalls, merchandise and bars at every turn. Hellfest definitely knows how to draw Twinmusix and Festival Goers back in. There are vast views from the festival Ferris wheel and riding this  gives the audience an amazing bird’s eye view  that allows one to take in the spectacle from above.
Twinmusix would like to sincerely Thank Ben Barbaud and Roger for the opportunity to do press and photography at Hellfest. We really appreciate Hellfest giving us our first real shoot at such a grand event and we are ecstatic to join you in 2018 and every other year! The experience was so amazing that we will be back every year through and through! We can’t wait to join Hellfest in summer! Hellfest certainly knows how to put on a show for their artists to festival-goers. With the new VIP and Press area, it certainly makes for an enjoyable weekend. A private bar, a pool and Twinmusix favourite part being the Press tent for Interviews, we can’t help but have to return every year.
