A growing number of South Africans have made the pilgrimage to Hellfest over the last decade. The French festival grew rapidly to claim its space as among Europe’s biggest and best Metal-focused festivals. Each year, Hellfest now draws attention from South African fans who add Hellfest to their “bucket-list” of metal experiences alongside the likes of Wacken Open Air, Download and Graspop among others.

Three days of Metal and Rock bliss will span the weekend of 21-24 June in Clisson, France, sporting the world’s biggest names in heavy music. For full details, visit the festival’s official website or join the facebook event page.
