The second day has served us another great dose of extreme music. Mentioned highlights go to stoner doom and black metal.
Brutal Assault, 8. - August 11, 2018, Fortress Josefov - Jaroměř www.brutalassault.cz
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.

Current lineup for 2018
UK’s biggest rock/metal festival is fast approaching so we take a look at just some (there are too many to list) of our highlights of this awesome music weekend that is not to be missed on the 8-10th June….
The first most notable highlight, of course, has to be the three headliners:
With Mammothfest less than 3 weeks away now, we take a look at just a few of many reasons why you should be checking out this annual Brighton UK based festival, which keeps growing every year. This year it takes place from the 6-8th October at The Arch, Brighton located along the seafront, making it a great venue to host this mental extreme metal weekend.
All UK exclusive headliners!
The festival has impressively managed to secure all three headliners as UK exclusives which is very exciting, especially when the headliners consist of controversial Greek extreme band Rotting Christ (Friday), Italian Avant-garde Fleshgod Apocalypse (Saturday) and Belgian metallers Amenra (Sunday). They can all only be witnessed at Mammothfest in 2017, so that is one hell of a reason to come along!
