  Hellfest Open Air

Hellfest started in 2002 as a small indoor festival  in France but has now became one of the biggest festivals in Europe. Hellfest is located in the idyllic town of Clisson and brings most of the biggest metal subgenres to the table during 3 hectic days of pure chaos, metal and beer in mid June. It is held within the Val de Moine sport complex in Clisson, approximately 35 km south-east of the city of Nantes, and approximately 400 km south-west of the nation's capital Paris.

Delivering a full running 24/7 timetable of Heavy metal, hardcore punk, hard rock and stoner rock. The festival welcomes almost 40 000 persons per day!

What to do in between the two Hellfests?

As you know, this year, Hellfest is taking place on 2 weekends with a break from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 June. Le Vignoble de Nantes has prepared a tailor-made and special “Hell’Tour” guide (which has nothing to envy to the famous “Lonely PLanet”) to make you discover our magnificent vineyard and the Nantes region between the two weekends:

Visits : Castle of Clisson, Domaine de la Garenne Lemont, special Hellfest guided tour of Clisson…
Gastronomy : Hellfest Wine Tour, Antipasti tasting, Trip in the Vineyard…
Sport : Hiking in the vineyard, Canoe-Kayak on the Sèvre…
Discovery days with transport to Nantes, to the Atlantic Coast, to the Bluebeard castle in Tiffauge…

Check out a great guide here: https://www.levignobledenantes-tourisme.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/helltour_guide_2022_office_tourisme_vignobledenantes.pdf

The French festival Hellfest 2022 has announced news about the 15th anniversary edition that will consist of two weekends in Clisson. First of all, the announced event from June 17 to 19. Second, another round of concerts that will take place from June 23 to 26. In total, seven days of festival. METALLICA will be headlining on Sunday the 26th.

The organization has confirmed that these bands are falling off the bill: AVENGED SEVENFOLD, FAITH NO MORE, THE WILDHEARTS, POWERFLO, OBITUARY, 3TEETH, BELZEBUBS, NUMENOREAN, OF MICE & MEN, JUSTIN(E), LEGION OF THE DAMNED, HATEBREED and CROWBAR . 32 groups are incorporated in their place and a headliner is missing to be announced in April.

The comunicate from Hellfest Crew:

"Hellbangers, as you can imagine, organizing this edition in these troubled times feels is quite a challenge. Several bands have recently informed us of their unavailability for the 2022 edition. Indeed, the organization of some international tours is affected by the Covid situation.  Thus, we announce the cancellation of the following artists: The Wildhearts, Powerflo, Obituary, 3Teeth, Belzebubs, Numenorean, Of Mice & Men, Justin(e), Legion of the Damned, Hatebreed and Crowbar. We learned a few days ago that a new 'headliner' could not be present for this 2022 edition: Avenged Sevenfold.  In spite of this setback, we did our best to find alternatives to guarantee a colorful line-up for this anniversary edition and we are now able to announce the addition of 32 new bands to the 2022 line-up.  First of all, we are happy to announce that GOJIRA will close Mainstage 1 on the first weekend, for their only European festival show. What a pride to be able to place at the top of the biggest stage of the festival, a French band! Joe, Mario, Christian & Jean-Michel, see you on Sunday June 19th. Concerning the replacement of Faith No More, we have been able to confirm it recently but it will only be announced in April. We find a band that you have been waiting for a long time, for a unique show in European festival this summer and that will have its place as a headliner on Saturday, June 18th on Mainstage 1! So be patient.  Also added to the party: 

- MAINSTAGES: Steve Vai, Skillet, Mammoth WVH, Ferocious Dog, The Last Internationale, Dead Heat, Fauxx, Titan, Stengah
- WARZONE: Comeback Kid, Sick Of It All, GBH, August Burns Red, Les Sheriff, Incendiary, Mordred
- VALLEY: Jerry Cantrell, Monkey3, The Vintage Caravan
- ALTAR : Obscura, Necrophobic, Memoriam, Hour of Penance, Fractal Universe
- TEMPLE : Sòlstafir, 1349, The Ruins of Beverast, Cân Bardd, Portrayal of Guilt, Lili Refrain 

To prepare your visit, our new website is now online at www.hellfest.fr and it will be filed with new information in the coming days / weeks. Please note that the locker reservations will open this Monday at 6pm on our website and that we will come back to you soon for the Easy Camp!
