The festival season for next year is on fire! 😀 According to the official statement from Metalfest, the first bands are already confirmed. Some of these bands are SUBWAY TO SALLY, PARADISE LOST, WINTERSUN and ARCH ENEMY. Moreover, the pre-sale starts at November 15th and the prices are really reasonable as always 😀

Here is the statement from Metalfest :

It finally happened in 2012: the METALFEST took place in the picturesque Rhine valley area for the first time. Countless fans were partying with the crème de la crème of pretty much every metal sector out there: MEGADETH! BLIND GUARDIAN! IN EXTREMO! Quite a debut which set the standards for the second edition of the METALFEST LORELEY on a very high level…

June 20th to 22nd it`s time again – the gates to headbanger`s heaven will swing open once more and over 40 carefully selected bands that belong to the biggest, most exciting and heaviest names of the genre await you on three festival days!

Line-up leaders are Germans SUBWAY TO SALLY who made it to the top with unforgettable hymns nestled in between rock, metal, folk and medieval flair! The shows of these veterans possess legendary and emotional character – SUBWAY TO SALLY will surely set the METALFEST on fire!!! Brits PARADISE LOST are the stuff of legends no less, because frontman Nick Holmes and co brought forth true gems of sombre heaviness with „Shades of god“ and „Icon“ in their long-running career. No wonder they are unmatched so far!

Is that supposed to be all??? Of course not. The 2013 edition of the METALFEST LORELEY will also welcome German comedy metal masters J.B.O., melodic death metal fan faves ARCH ENEMY, WINTERSUN will be there to teach everyone a lesson in Finnish metal folklore, and VARG will once more light the heathen torch!

Countless other renowned acts are currently in the works to make sure METALFEST LORELEY will live up to its excellent reputation.

And it`s no wonder why the METALFEST holds the title as champion in terms of price-performance ratio amongst all metal festivals: the three-day festival pass (including camping) is only 79 €, and for 89 € you can call the fan pack including the festival pass, a festival shirt and a NoiseArt CD of your choice your own!!!

So brace yourselves for the METALFEST LORELEY 2013 taking place at what must be Germany`s most enticing and beautiful festival area, offering you the full metal assault combined with relaxed holiday atmosphere!

Presented by Piranha, Musix, Noizeletter, Radio Bob, Coolibri,, Rock Hard France, Rock Tribune, Lords Of Metal & BLAST!
