Metallica, Guns N Roses, Nine Inch Nails and more set to headline

Organizers of the Hellfest Open Air Festival have announced that no less than 350 bands will perform at the 15th anniversary edition in 2022. Metallica, Guns N Roses, Deftones, Faith No More, Avenged Sevefold, Nine Inch Nails, Deep Purple and Judas Priest are among the headliners performing over two weekends from June 17-26, 2022 in Clisson, France.

“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,” organizers share.

“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.”

Three day and single day passes for the first weekend are sold out with four day passes available for the second weekend starting with pre-sales for 2020 pass holders on July 6th and opening to general public on July 7th. Single day passes for weekend two open to the general public on July 8th. All tickets available via the Hellfest website.

A special presale will be organized on July 6th at 1 pm local time for three day pass holders of the postponed edition that were purchased only via the official sale in October 2019.

Any ticket that has been re-sold via the official Ticketswap resale, or for which a refund has been claimed in 2020 or 2021 will not be affected by this presale.
