  SWR Barroselas Metalfest

SWR Barroselas Metalfest is one of the oldest extreme metal festivals in Portugal. Located in the small, quiet village of Barroselas, it celebrates 18 years this year. It started as a small festival created by two brothers, Ricardo and Tiago Veiga, and it has became legend throughout the years, and a tradition among portuguese extreme metal lovers, even attracting fans from Spain as well. With the years, the Steel Warriors Rebellion, SWR, became an industry of itself, promoting gigs and events aside from the festival and throughout the year.

The festival has had many memorable bands on the bill, such as Venom, Immortal, Possessed, Candlemass, and Ratos de Porão, among many others, delivering a great line-up every year. It is definitely one of the most influential metal festivals in the peninsula, and due to its location in the North of Portugal, it attracts people from other countries as well.

It consists of two indoor stages, and an outdoor stage. The outdoor stage is of free entrance and features gigs throughout the 4 days, including day 0. It hosts mainly portuguese acts, and it has also hosted the portuguese chapter of the Wacken Metal Battle. It has free camping in the woods, and facilities that provide hot showers for free during the course of the festival, and also toilets spread through the entire area.
It is a diverse, amazing festival, with a welcoming environment, and definitely recommended.
