METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, SCORPIONS, DEFTONES, FAITH NO MORE, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and NINE INCH NAILS will headline next year's edition of Hellfest, set to take place over two weekends, June 17-19, 2022 and June 23-26, 2022, in Clisson, France. No less than 350 artists will perform on six stages, with additional appearances by such acts as JUDAS PRIEST, VOLBEAT, DEEP PURPLE, ALICE COOPER, NIGHTWISH, SABATON, SUICIDAL TENDENICES and BAD RELIGION. Blabbermouth


The Hellfest 2022 lineup was announced earlier today by festival founder Ben Barbaud and the rest of his crew. They wrote in part: "It's been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

"The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called 'extreme' music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.


"After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

"As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, heavy, black, hardcore, death, stoner, pagan, power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the 'edition of the century.


"This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure."


Hellfest, which drew 180,000 people in 2019, generally features a lineup which is 90 percent made up of international acts and 20 percent of spectators coming from abroad.
