...to the list of confirmed bands!
METALFEST OPEN AIR 2023 – 2nd – 4th of June 2023, Amphitheater Lochotín, PILSEN
The METALFEST OPEN AIR international metal festival in PILSEN, which traditionally opens the summer festival season at the beginning of June, always includes selected representatives of the domestic music scene in its program. At this year's, 12th edition of the festival, you can look forward to this trio of well-known Czech bands.
FORREST JUMP - in more than twenty years on the scene, Forrest Jump have built a reputation as an unrestrained concert band that is not afraid to experiment with sound and expression. On the current album "Vrtochy", which will be released in the spring of 2023, the band collaborates with Honza Toužimský (Arakain) or Martin Kapek (Traktor), and this album will be the backbone of their concert set at METALFEST. According to their words, the gentlemen will bring to Pilsen a selection of the best from their twenty-years history and promise that they will not leave a single thread dry on them.
SEBASTIEN - they have performed countless concerts, had interesting collaborations (Roland Grapow, Jacob Hansen, Tony Martin, Fabio Lione, Zak Stevens, Amanda Somerville, Ailyn Giménez, Doogie White...), 4 albums, of which the last one "Intergity" (2020) was sung in Czech for the first time. SEBASTIEN teamed up with the Czech Miss 2014 finalist, Veronika Kašáková, who supports children from orphanages, and together they shot a music video for the song "Nechtěná". In 2021, a special single "Lví stopou" was created for the ČT SPORT documentary series about the history of Czech football. The band sponsored aid to people suffering the war and recorded a bilingual acoustic version of the song "Nechtěná" in the form of a duet with Viktoria Surmøva. SEBASTIEN are finishing now their fifth studio album, on which they once again promise strong melodies, rich arrangements and interesting guests, and which they will present live for the first time at METALFEST!
SOLAR SYSTEM – this heavy-metal group from Havířov will also arrive at METALFEST this year with brand new musical material! After two successful albums "Atlantis" (2015) and "Synchronicity" (2020), they are currently working on their third heavy-metal child. Expect another great metal show with the pleasant vocals of the likeable frontman Ota Gajdoš.
Come and support the local representatives too! To the Lochotín amphitheater in PILSEN, June 2nd -4th, 2023 on METALFEST OPEN AIR 2023!
