Following the health crisis, Hellfest manager Ben Barbaud announced in an interview with our peers at Le Parisien, that Hellfest 2020 was unfortunately cancelled and postponed to June 18 to 21, 2021. The lineup? System of a Down, Faith no More, Korn, Deftones, Volbeat, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, The Offspring, Sepultura and even Mayhem.

This is the unmissable French music event for all metal fans and other lovers of high-decibel music… Every year since 2006, the Hellfest Summer Open Air aka Hellfest Festival welcomes many bands especially playing metal and punk hardcore music.

Also welcoming several dozens of thousands of festivalgoers and cult bands known worldwide such as Alice Cooper, Kiss, Motörhead and Mötley Crüe, the Hellfest has become one of the main European music festivals and one of the main cultural events in France.

In 2019, the festival welcomed prestigious artists such as Slayer, Gojira, Dropkick Murphys, Mass Hysteria, ZZ TOp, Kiss, Dream Theater, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd and even Slash. Unfortunately, Hellfest has had to cancel the edition 2020 because of the health crisis. But the festival delays the 15th edition to Friday June 18 to Sunday 20, 2021 in Clisson.

On the occasion, 90% of the bands scheduled in 2020 confirmed they will be there in 2021 including System of a DownFaith no MoreKornDeftonesVolbeatIncubusOpethJudas PriestThe Offspring, Deep PurpleSepultura or even Mayhe.

Dry your tears, Hellfest is happy to confirm three new bands: Puscifer, Dropkick Murphys and Northlane. The festival also expects to announce 10 more bands soon in order to complete the lineup 2021.
