Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st- 23rd June 2013

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

When it comes to rock n roll hotels, the Sanctum in Soho is right up there, and as such it’s roof terrace bar seems like a natural place to meet two of metal’s brothers-in-arms Chad Gray (Mudvayne) and Vinnie Paul (Pantera, Damageplan). Such introduction’s are clearly unnecessary, but today talk is of heavy metal supergroup Hellyeah and the new album Band of Brothers, which by all accounts is ‘the record that people expected of us from the start’. As we talk the album, touring, the end of the world, and seriously expensive drinks, with these two it can only be the real deal..
