DOMINUM brought a great metal hurricane to this year's METALFEST in PILSEN!

Check out the video! They are planning another show for the Czech Republic at this year's WINTER MASTERS OF ROCK. Be there!

The German power-metal zombie band DOMINUM performed their premiere festival performance at this year's METALFEST in PILSEN, and their energetic, very intense horror show gained a huge enthusiasm from you, the fans. In addition, Mr. Dead aka Felix Heldt together with FEUERSCHWANZ shares the gold medal in the art of natural communication with the audience! It was, in a word, a sensation, and this zombie unit "bited" and infected whole crowds of fans with their cat...

METALFEST OPEN AIR 2024 is over! Thank you, metalheads!

Thunder, lightning, regular showers and stronger streams of water from the sky, moments of relief only with heavy clouds overhead, only a few bright moments with the sun, but mainly METAL! It was just metal that stormed in PILSEN the strongest during those 3 unpleasant days and simply completely destroyed any attempts by the weather to throw you off. You have proven that you are fantastically hardened by metal and nothing will stop or discourage you! You are real heroes, friends!  Thank you very much in the name of the performing bands, who had a great time this year thanks to you, and...

The grand finale of this year's METALFEST was provided by the bands FEUERSCHWANZ

...and DIMMU BORGIR! We are sending photos!

The 13th edition of Pilsen´s METALFEST is behind us. It was unusually colorful, and even when it comes to the colors in the audience, raincoat manufacturers probably don't like black much. We spent three extraordinary days and nights together and once again felt how music and especially metal can unite and delight. We hope that you have gathered enough energy at least until the middle of July, when we are serving another, this time a 4-day metal cure in VIZOVICE, at the 20th jubilee MASTERS OF ROCK.

Look at the very nice photos fro...

METALFEST 2024 is the past! Take a look at today's second photo report and sleep well!

And it is... done, finished. This year's 13th edition of METALFEST was sensationally unusual, often challenging, but still, we think, successful. We are now sending some pictures from VISIONS OF ATLANTIS and ORDEN OGAN.

We will publish a photo report from the last two concerts of this year's METALFEST, the famous FEUERSCHWANZ and the spectacular conclusion of the dark DIMMU BORGIR tomorrow. Look forward, we have unique pictures.

METALFEST OPEN AIR 2024 is slowly heading towards its finale. Here are the first photos

...from today, the third day.

The third, final day of METALFEST 2024 is marked by the April weather. The sun finally made its way here, which was then pushed out by the rain again, and there was even some lightnings and thunders, but metal, metal still rules here. It charges and strengthens all visitors with its energy and successfully relegates the vagaries of the weather to an insignificant place. The bands IRON WILL, DARK SKY, ILLUMISHADE and the fantastic DOMINUM deserved it. Take a look at the photos and enjoy the end of this year's, 13th edition of this festival in full fest!

We open the third day of the METALFEST OPEN AIR festival with a photo memory

...of last night with TARJA and MARKO!

With hopeful prospects for better weather, today we start the third, last day of the 13th edition of the METALFEST OPEN AIR 2024 festival. Last night was a wonderful metal experience when, after years, TARJA appeared on the same stage together with MARKO HIETALA. After a series of triumphant performances in South America, this dynamic metal duo dominated the entire Lochotín amphitheater in PILSEN last night. Their show was a fascinating testament to the power of friendship and their artistic collaboration, leaving perhaps everyone presxsent with ...

The second day of METALFEST is in the finale! We have another photo report for you!

And again, the strength and power of metal has been shown again! Even the clouds are probably tired and the rain is fading... and you? You went on and enjoyed METALFEST to the fullest. The area was cheerful and there was a great mood, thanks to the metalheads. You will see how the bands BROTHERS OF METAL, AVATARIUM, SEPTICFLESH and SONATA ARCTICA enjoyed it from the photos we are sending you now.

Today's festival day ended with the sounds of the masterful voices of TARJI TURUNEN and MARKO HIETALA and their unique musical combination that brings joy and a bit of pleasant nostalgia....

METALFEST 2024 - day two in pictures. Despite the weather, we keep going!

The 2nd day of the METALFEST OPEN AIR international metal festival in PILSEN continues, despite the fact that the weather is not exactly favorable and the sky has been showering us with a greater or lesser amount of water since the very morning. However, the stage program goes exactly according to the "time-schedule". We are sending today's first photo report of the bands MELODIUS DEITE, CRIMSON VEIL, IRON ALLIES and BLOODRED HOURGLASS. All the bands perform at their best and don't hesitate to get even closer to you, the fans, even they are getting soaked.

Metalheads, you are grea...

The second day of the 13th edition of metal festival METALFEST OPEN AIR begins, and we send you a a small memory of yesterday's massacre finale of the first day of the festival - FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH.

It was a perfect end to the first day of the festival. Take a look at the photos. We hope you have renewed strength for today. The second day of METALFEST is here, l...

METALFEST 2024 is roaring in PILSEN! We have a second photo report for you.

IMPORTANT NEWS for METALFEST visitors...

...who are going to park in the Jíkalka parking!

Due to the weather forecast for the next few days, when it is supposed to be rainy, we have a recommendation for visitors who planned parking on Jíkalka not to do it, because there may be a problem with leaving from the meadows.
