Hellfest Open Air unveils the first five names for 2019
Hellfest Open Air just finished another massive edition two weeks ago and while it’s still stuck in everyone’s minds, the festival won’t give anyone a breather as it has already started the hype train for 2019 with five big names. They are Slayer, the thrash metal legends who might be playing one of their last European shows at Hellfest – the band is currently on a farewell tour around the world -, and British grindcore masters Carcass, who are currently working on the follow-up to 2013’s Surgical Steel, as well as heavy metal giants Manowar, celtic punk rockers Dropkick Murphys and industrial metal masterminds Mass Hysteria. Over 140 bands are still to be announced, so fire up those rumours and start saving: Hellfest is looking to sell out fast once again.
Hellfest Open Air 2019 takes place in Clisson on June 21st-23rd. Ticket information will be made available in the coming months, so stay tuned.
