As heir to Furyfest, Hellfest officially debuted in 2006, and takes place in Clisson in Loire-Atlantique. As one of the most important French music festivals in terms of attendance, it’s one of the biggest metal festivals in Europe, and the first in France. There are mainly hard rock, heavy metal and alternative metal, but also black metal, hardcore punk or stoner rock.
This event has become an unmissable event for fans of the genre, but also for artists.having brought together renowned international bands and artists, such as Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, The Offsprings and many more.
And for its big comeback, Hellfest 2022 has planned things big, especially since after a two-year break, everyone was impatient to be able to meet again. But for those who weren’t lucky enough to be able to get there, we have good news. This year, the Franco-German channel Arte offers fans the opportunity to attend several concerts live. For example, you can go to the YouTube channel of ARTE-Concert to see live some of the concerts offered by the festival.
And while this 15th edition of Hellfest started almost two days ago, we see that the heat wave made the experience difficult for some. With nearly 37°C in the shade, there are already several cases of discomfort, the firefighters being present on the scene to help festival-goers. Already that in normal times, the various pogo and Wall of Death can be a little hectic for the more sensitive, the high temperatures that we are currently observing put the fans all the more to the test.
But they have it all plannedas reported France Info with this testimony from a festival-goer on site: “You have to hydrate, alternate between beer and water”. A problem that is much less impactful when we are behind a screen, although we may regret not feeling the bass noise in our rib cages or the atmosphere of a cheering crowd on a guitar solo .
