Hellfest 2013 was a huge success, for us because we covered it for the first time, and for the event itself as it played host to , Stone Sour, Newsted, Danzig, Twisted Sister, Down, Korn, Candlemass, and so much more. No surprise that it’s going to be back in 2014. Actually, given Hellfest’s rocky past, there’s no guarantee that there is a next year for the metal festival, but thank the gods that it is.
Hellfest 2014 hasn’t just been confirmed, 48 bands are already signed up! And there are 120 others yet to be revealed. Among the bands already booked are:
