Hellbotn Metalfest 2020
Sadly we have come to the point where we see that the only responsible thing to do is to postpone this year`s festival.
It started with the realization that most of the international artist wouldn`t be able to perform. We worked for some days to get great replacement bands from Norway and where already making deals with several.
But then came the new situation with increased numbers of infected people with covid-19 in the area close to the festival and after several discussions, we decided this is the only option left – postponing the festival.
Hellbotn Metalfest is located in Kolbotn, Follo, 20 mins by car from Oslo city centre, direction south.
The Venue is Kolben Kulturhus (the local civic centre), located in Kolbotn city right next to train station «Kolbotn» and shopping centre “Kolbotn Torg”.
