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.

We tried for a long time and hoped to give everybody a different, but still killer festival. We are however not beaten. Instead we are aiming for 2021!
Talking about 2021, the dates will be 27-28th of August and we are stoked to inform that most bands for this year`s festival are already on board for next years. More details will be revealed within the next couple of weeks.
Tickets: all festival tickets and single-day tickets will be valid for next years festival. This also goes for the hotel-deals!
If you for some reason want a return, this is possible until the 01st of October 2020 and all ticketholders will get an email on exactly how this can be done within a couple of weeks as well.
Thank you for your patience and keep safe!
