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.

After​ ​ the​ ​ success​ ​ in​ ​ previous​ ​ years,​ ​ a​ ​ special​ ​ “fourth​ ​ stage”​ ​ should​ ​ return​ ​ this​ ​ year,​ ​ where experimental​ ​ and​ ​ ambient​ ​ music​ ​ will​ ​ be​ ​ played.​ ​ The​ ​ Art-Brut-All​ ​ Art​ ​ Exhibition​ ​ should​ ​ also​ ​ be a​ ​ traditional​ ​ part.

Brutal​ ​ Assault​ ​ is​ ​ one​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ biggest​ ​ metal​ ​ festivals​ ​ in​ ​ Europe.​ ​ It​ ​ was​ ​ created​ ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ mid-1990s as​ ​ a​ ​ small​ ​ event​ ​ in​ ​ Moravia​ ​ and​ ​ often​ ​ changed​ ​ its​ ​ location.​ ​ Breaking​ ​ point​ ​ came​ ​ in​ ​ 2006 when​ ​ 7,000​ ​ people​ ​ came​ ​ thanks​ ​ to​ ​ the​ ​ attractive​ ​ program.​ ​ Following​ ​ year​ ​ the​ ​ festival​ ​ moved to​ ​ Josefov,​ ​ where​ ​ it​ ​ stayed​ ​ until​ ​ today.​ ​ The​ ​ last​ ​ edition​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ festival,​ ​ which​ ​ was​ ​ sold​ ​ out​ ​ in presale​ ​ for​ ​ the​ ​ first​ ​ time​ ​ in​ ​ history,​ ​ attracted​ ​ 20,000​ ​ fans​ ​ from​ ​ around​ ​ the​ ​ world.
