Festival organizers say:
“Hellbangers, you can imagine, the organization of this edition in these somewhat turbulent times sometimes resembles a game of musical chairs. Several groups have recently informed us of their lack of availability for the 2022 edition. In fact, the organization of certain international tours is being undermined due to the health situation.[…]
Despite these bumps in the road, we’ve done our best to find workarounds to guarantee you a colorful lineup for this anniversary edition and that’s how we can announce the addition of 32 new groups to the 2022 lineup.”
The meeting is still held from June 17 to 26 in Clisson (44), with two consecutive weekends planned. It shows full.
