BANG YOUR HEAD !!!
One of the most traditional German heavy metal festivals is celebrating a very special anniversary: In 2020 the southern German Bang Your Head !!! Open Air takes place for the 25th time. This birthday is of course celebrated appropriately. Under the motto "25 & Alive", visitors to the Balingen exhibition center from July 16 to 18 can look forward to a hand-picked selection of bands with numerous national and international guests.
One of the main acts are the British Saxon, who are arriving with their lavish "Castles and Eagles" production, with which they recently celebrated their 40th anniversary as a band. The appearance at Bang Your Head !!! is the only open-air show in Germany where visitors can see this impressive backdrop. The two other headliners will be announced shortly by the organizers.
The performance of the symphonic metal chart toppers Epica is also exclusive and will be the only one that the Dutch will complete at a German festival in 2020. Also confirmed is the former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley, who is generally one of the extremely rare guests on local stages.
Also there are acts like Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons with a Mötörhead show, Hardcore Superstar, Primal Fear, Dragonforce, Kissin 'Dynamite, Riot V, Tankard, Legion Of The Damned, Rage, Unleashed, Benediction, The Iron Maidens, Night Demon and many more.
Since the event took place in the open air for the first time in 1999 on the Balingen exhibition center, its visitors have appreciated and loved the Bang your Head !!! for its unique mixture of big event flair and family atmosphere. With this recipe for success, the festival has established itself as one of the most renowned heavy metal open airs in Germany - and as a popular alternative to the mass operations of the "big ones", where the motto "by fans for fans" is still alive.
The carefully selected program mix of well-known scene stars and cult bands for connoisseurs and insiders does the rest and ensures that metal fans of all stripes get their money's worth: from melodic hard rock to power metal to doom, thrash and Death is everything that makes the heart of the true heavy fan beat faster.
