The biggest, bloodiest metal music festival in Europe
Hellfest Open Air is the biggest metal music festival in Europe. Its dedication to "Extreme Music" takes it through every offshoot and sub-genre you can think of, from Black Metal to Folk Metal via Crust Punk and the Nordic-inspired Viking Metal.
10 years after setting the metal scene alight for the very first time, Hellfest continues on as the frontline of worldwide thrash events, riding defiantly past opposition from local religious groups and political figures.
And beyond the massive, gut-wrenching lineup, the festival's scene-enhancing extras just keep on expanding year on year.
The lineup has not yet been announced. Last year included Slipknot, Scorpions, Faith No More, Judas Priest and many more.
Clisson has hosted Hellfest since its inception in 2006, when it picked up the legacy of Fury Fest.
The festival site is actually a short distance outside of the city centre, over La Sèvre Nantaise river.
