METALFEST OPEN AIR 2024 – amphitheater Lochotín, PILSEN – 31.5. – 2.6.2024

We are fulfilling our promise and will spice up your Friday, or sweeten it up, if you like, with the first confirmed bands for next year's 13th METALFEST OPEN AIR international metal festival in PILSEN!
METALFEST 2024 will traditionally take place from Friday to Sunday, from 31.5. until 2nd of June 2024 in the popular amphitheater Lochotín in PILSEN!

Introducing the first confirmed bands.

Folk-metal will be represented by one of the biggest stars of this metal sub-genre, very popular Swiss ELUVEITIE! This folk-metal phenomenon has been flourishing on the world music scene for more than 20 years, and still brings something new all the time! As soon as the sky darkens and the first ravens arrive, it's time for ELUVEITIE and their next unforgettable, stormy show! You can also expect grandiose folk-metal and a catchy, fantastic show from one of the hottest German metal bands today, FEUERSCHWANZ, who are currently rolling the charts with their album "Fegefeuer" this year! From Germany there is another, this time power-metal star ORDEN OGAN. The last record "Final Days" even received a double release for great success, the second time as a re-edition with many guest stars. Get ready for a perfectly energizing concert! The Greek SEPTICFLESH will bring their dark, symphonic-death metal show, which always hides many messages. The interesting Swedish band AVATARIUM will take you to the poetic and dark doom-metal world, while on the other hand you will discover the sparkling world of fantasy together with the resurrected hero ANGUS McSIX!

You can also look forward to the famous symphonic-metal pirates VISIONS OF ATLANTIS, the nice Swedish vikings BROTHERS OF METAL, the modern, fresh, daring and always optimistic APRIL ART or the cheerful Norwegian folk-metallers TROLLFEST, who will take care of your good mood on the festival!

The singer of ELUVEITIE, the beautiful Fabienne Erni, will present at METALFEST her prog-metal band ILLUMISHADE, full of perfect virtuosity, passionate melodies, ethereal layers of sound, all in a brand new album and a modern show that will take your breath away! Former Accept guitarist Herman Frank will also return to Pilsen. This time with his band IRON ALLIES and straightforward heavy metal.

We continue to work on confirming other bands and will serve them to you gradually.
