Re : Hellfest 2016

Yes, I am planning 10 bands a day, if I can see 12 a day, OK, but I also want to be able to have cool time.

In my 71, some of them are quite similar and are just here in case. That I really wanna see, but really, really, there must be 15.

Re : Hellfest 2016

This is why it's better to book more than we can see, because of the clashes, the cancellations, our tiredness, etc....

I encourage all English speaking people to post, comment, debate around the "English speaking section"! A lot more of French people around are realy able to talk (and maybe write) in English.
You're a big part of the festival goers but the forum is sort of desert and it's quite a shame...

Well, as for the first announcement, I'm so excited by the bands on the Valley that it will be difficult for me to go to other stages...But I want to see some bands everywhere!!!! I'm gonna run...again...as usual  devil

Hahahaha English section is a dying breed and yes we need to save it tongue
The poster has been awesome so far!! I have not even tried counting al the great bands that i want see..i am just hope the running order is kind to me with minimum clashes!!! I am sure i will miss some bands...but the line up is truly insane. I have seen most of the bands here but they are great and worthy of watching again. Hope i see some fresh names for me in the next announcement!

Re : Hellfest 2016

I also have a lot of bands to see, most of them in the Altar/Temple as usual. As I said before, I average 10 bands a day, 12 if I'm not that tired or wake up real early to avoid the huge queue to enter the site in the last 2 years.

I have seen most of the bands already but some of them I want to see again. I think my priority will go to: Ghost, Gojira, King Diamond, Twisted Sister, Amon Amarth, Blind Guardian, Primordial, Taake, Cattle Decapitation and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

As for the clashes, I always have one day that is kinda empty and the other two days totally full with a lot of clashes. I really have a lot of things to see this year, including the "small bands" that usually play in the morning but this year even those are not small at all!

Oh, I think I will waste 5m of my time to throw some tomatoes at Dave Mustaine, that concert in 2012 was fucking horrible and made me swear I would never watch another Megadeth concert again.

Re : Hellfest 2016

Now that such a huge numer has been confirmed, I´m really looking Forward to attending Hellfest.

I just would have wished for Iron Maiden instead of Rammstein and for Bolt Thrower to play.


How did they do it in the past with the remaining bands to be revealed.
Is it usually just some small bands they haven´t decided on yet, or could there still be something big behind the curtain?

Re : Hellfest 2016

Iron Maiden = Not this year, Ben Barbaud (big Boss of Hellfest) said that they doesn't want to have a 2014 lookalike again.
Also Maiden is in exclusive at Download.

Bolt Thrower refused to play at Hellfest stating they never play twic ein the same fest. Not a good idea in my opinion...  neutral

1 headliner is missing and we can have some surprise with the next announcement (Rancid or Deftones maybe).

ok thank you very much.

Wish the english section of this Forum would be a Little bit more active.

Is this due to a low number of foreigners/non French speaking, attending the Festival?  (I don´t know, just guessing)

Because I have to admit, my biggest worry is to end between two camps of people who just speak French and not a single word of english.

Re : Hellfest 2016

Indeed it's a little bite dead here due to the low number of French that are non English speaking and the low number of Foreigner.
At the camping you can found lot of foreigners but being unlucky and finish surounded by French is a posibility. If you have beer (or whisky) it will ease the communication wink

Well, let's try to change it!

Re : Hellfest 2016

Hi guys, first post here, and first visit to Hellfest next year.

Me and a friend (from Holland) were thinking about Download (UK) first, but then this line-up dropped and we didnt hesitate big_smile Luckily we were in time to get tickets.

I've got a few questions, hope its in the right place and they arent too dumb:

- How is it for non-French speaking people? I've read some reviews, and even Belgian people (who speak some French) had a hard time locating things like parking, camping, and couldnt really figure out how the cashless system worked. They've said people are really friendly, but hardly anybody (of the crew / personnel) speak any other language then French big_smile
- I've read some people were complaining about the festival being overcrowded in 2014? How is it nowadays? Did they enlarge the perimeter or are less tickets being sold?

- What are chances on a third 'big' headliner? I thought they would just go with a co-headlining setup with some acts from the second or third rows on the poster, but I read some other people saying they are still looking for a large headliner along the lines of the first two?

Actually, I'm the worst person to ask about other languages, I am used to speaking french all the time.



It can be full when you want to enter the festival site in the morning.  There is a big queue and you will have to be patient.  But once you're in, it's not that crowded anymore.

As to the 3rd question.  Geen idee. I don't know.

Although there are a lot of people that do not speak English or even try to speak it, it is perfectly manageable to get around not knowing french. Gestures, smarphones and goodwill will get you anywhere! Inside the festival it is a lot easier, never had problem buying beer, water, merch or food.

Still overcrowded! That is the major problem of the festival... this year was quite funny to see the new Altar/Temple tents totally full of people resting in the shadow to escape the blazing sun! There were big improvements in the festival area in 2015 so the it is a little better, but still overcrowded.

I wouldnt mind a third headliner like Metallica or Bon Jovi. In practice these "Headliners" get only 30m more (90m set) or in special cases, 60m more (120m set).

From an interview of Ben Barbaud (the Main Man at hellfest org) we learned that
Metallica is currently in studio working on new album and will not play this summer.
Hellfest is looking for a headliner for Saturday (Rammstein is on Friday and Black Sabbath on Sunday)

Re : Hellfest 2016

Sup all! First fest in a few years for me, can't wait!

I was thinking maybe if we make more separate topics (which bands are you looking forward to, hellfest tips and tricks, etc) maybe it will be easier to keep track and more people would post?

I think one of the reasons for low english posting could be that to log in to the forum you still have to get past some french. Minor detail but could be an inconvenience too much for some. Hey just spitballin!

Speaking of other languages!

While most places in France (granted, I haven't been to many, but still) don't speak a lick of English (not even the supermarket near hellfest), hellfest itself is very English friendly. I think a big reason for this is that it's based around music that is predominantly written in English.

Anyways yeah, hyped for the fest!

Most of them start on Friday.
But note that Hellfest really start on Thursday at the Metal Corner where some bands are also playing while you are sharing drinks with friends or people from here.
More often people are packing up on Monday morning

Hey..I don't speak french and have been coming to Hellfest for 3 years in row now. So believe me language will be least of your worries. Also info about parking, camping isn't too difficult to find and they have the festival app in english with maps and other info to help you. Nevertheless you'll find somebody who speaks english to guide you and help you with your queries.
As far as the festival being crowded, it's tru3 2014 was a little too crowded but still i was able to move around the stages easily. I went to each of the 6 stages at least once every year and it's not really an issue.
And the 3rd headliner is likely to be a big band but if not, still you got an incredible line-up already and the remaining 20+ bands will be good as well going by past years wink
Since you already have your tix, just wait for the RO and June to come and then party at the bestest festival in the world wink

honestly, i liked the older altar-temple stage layout..where they were under the same tent...it just felt perfect..this year they made it big and little like the metal dome they have at Graspop..but yeah it was good for fans to get away from sun wink
I like the idea of Bon Jovi or may be even RHCP! It would really spice up the line-up nicely;)
