Although on a smaller scale, Hellfest is France's distinguished answer to Wacken, Download and the other major European metal festivals.

Spawned from the remains of the financially troubled FuryFest and a passion to keep metal firmly on the French musical map, the festival has guaranteed an illustrious metal gathering since 2006.
