Hellfest announces first names for 2024
Hellbangers, it is that time of the year again, where the best festival in the whole world announces its lineup and we stand in awe of its majestic glory. This time around, however, we are treated with only a few names, an apéritif, so to speak, as the full main course will be delivered later this year. At the top of the billing are the Dave Grohl-led Foo Fighters, who are finally coming to Hellfest to present But Here We Are, the band’s first record since the death of longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins. Also confirmed are Queens of the Stone Age, The Offspring, Megadeth, Dropkick Murphys, Royal Blood, Bad Omens, All Them Witches, Babymetal, Biohazard, Bruce Dickinson, Brujeria, Brutus, Dark Tranqullity, Dimmu Borgir, Eternal Champion, Fu Manchu, Korpiklaani, Kvelertak, Madball, Nova Twins, Rhapsody of Fire, Satyricon and The Interrupters. Over 160 bands will be a part of next year’s Hellfest, so keep your eyes peeled for further announcements.
Hellfest 2024 takes place in Clisson, France, on June 27th-30th. The second and last wave of four-day passes will go on sale on October 25th – they will be available for 329 euros and bought online here.
