Maiden are, as speculated on here for quite a while now, officially confirmed for Hellfest in France on the opening night the 20th of June. The fast growing metal festival is boasting an – to put it mildly – astonishing line-up that includes the headliner trio Maiden, Black Sabbath and Aerosmith, along with classic acts such as Deep Purple, Slayer, Megadeth. Not to say the least an impressive array of harder gems including Carcass, Emperor, Watain, Enslaved and more.
Fresh from the can is Switzerland’s Greenfield Festival, set to take place in between the 12th – 14th of June. The band will headline this major festival after playing a sold out show in Zurich‘s Hallenstadion last summer.
Keep an eye out for more announcements in the coming days. We’re particularly looking at Italy (Rock in Rome), Austria (Nova Rock) and Fortarock in the Netherlands.
