Brutal​ ​ Assault​ ​ music​ ​ festival​ ​ is​ ​ coming​ ​ back​ ​ to​ ​ Josefov​ ​ once​ ​ again​ ​ for​ ​ its​ ​ 23rd edition.​ ​ One​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ biggest​ ​ metal​ ​ festivals​ ​ in​ ​ Europe​ ​ has​ ​ confirmed​ ​ the​ ​ first​ ​ bands. The​ ​ complete​ ​ lineup​ ​ should​ ​ traditionally​ ​ include​ ​ more​ ​ than​ ​ a​ ​ hundred​ ​ bands​ ​ of various​ ​ extreme​ ​ genres.

Some​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ best​ ​ known​ ​ names​ ​ of​ ​ metal​ ​ extreme​ ​ returning​ ​ to​ ​ the​ ​ festival,​ ​ mentioned Behemoth,​ ​ At​ ​ The​ ​ Gates,​ ​ Ihsahn,​ ​ Unleashed​ ​ or​ ​ Broken​ ​ Hope​ ​ among​ ​ others.​ ​ Hardcore genre​ ​ this​ ​ time​ ​ is​ ​ represented​ ​ by​ ​ Converge,​ ​ Northlane​ ​ or​ ​ Full​ ​ of​ ​ Hell.

The​ ​ festival​ ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ middle​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ fortress​ ​ Josefov ​ has​ ​ traditionally​ ​ built​ ​ a​ ​ program​ ​ without emphasis​ ​ on​ ​ headliners.​ ​ “Dramaturgy​ ​ stands​ ​ on​ ​ a​ ​ balanced​ ​ lineup.​ ​ Increasing​ ​ attendance gives​ ​ us​ ​ feedback​ ​ that​ ​ fans​ ​ trust​ ​ the​ ​ festival,​ ​ “says​ ​ organizer​ ​ Tomáš​ ​ Fiala.
