For the first time, France welcomes a convention devoted to metal culture. Metalhead Convention will be held on October 24 and 25, 2020 at La Villette Grande Halle. On the menu: concerts, masterclass, conferences, signing sessions and stands for extreme music fans.

Metalheads will have to wait to a whole year…
In one year to the day, Metalhead Convention, the very first convention devoted to metal culture will take over the 18,000sqm of La Villette Grand Halle on Saturday October 24 and Sunday 25, 2020.
Once Comic Con 2020 over, super heroes will return to their secret dens and will leave the place for metal artisans.

For a weekend, La Villette will live at the pace of extreme music, turning into a genuine “temple” of metal.
On the menu of Metalhead Convention – much more than a simple meeting between professionals and metal lovers – concerts, masterclasses, conferences, panels and many stands.

Professionals from the field – artists, artisans, medias… - expect you at Metalhead Convention to share their universe with you. Instruments testing, discovering accessories, contests and other entertainments will have you busy for two days. Without forgetting beer bars and food trucks to gets enough energy to headbang and do a wall of death.

Both days will be paced by live concerts. If the headlines (not announced yet) will perform at the end of the day, emerging bands specially selected by Metalhead springboard will play earlier.
And that’s not all: photo sessions and signing sessions with invited artists will also be held.

Calling all 9 million metalheads hiding in France and all those across the world, let’s meet at La Villette in 365 days for the first edition of Metalhead Convention.

But until then, to help us wait, we’ll have Hellfest, another major event for the metal culture.
