A French metal monster
Taking place early each summer in the western French town of Clisson, Hellfest Open Air is one of Europe's biggest and most respected rock, metal and punk festivals.
Held in its current form since 2006, the festival is now hugely well established and the lineups unfailingly feature a wealth of the genre's biggest and best; whether that's rock veterans or the newest stars of the scene.
Beyond the almost overwheliming three-day programme, Hellfest has also become renowned for its spectacular production that sees the site transformed with enormous staging, imposing pyrotechnics and all manner of other impressive structures and installations.
Just outside the city centre, Clisson is still hosting Hellfest more than a decade on from the first edition.
