Copenhell 2017 adds new names to the festival

in Festivals

Copenhell – one of Europe’s biggest metal festivals, adds 4 new names to next year’s metal-fest:

Once a year since 2010, the earlier B&W shipyard in the north docks of Copenhagen is, for a few days at least, transformed into a mayhem of metal-heads, presenting some of the biggest names in hard rock and metal. After having Black Sabbath grace the stage in 2016, it’s time to start teasing for next year’s festival:

Having already announced System Of A Down as headliner for next year, the festival adds these names to the lineup. Flick Of The Finger will do what we can to bring you reviews and awesome photos from these three days of hell-on-earth, and if you haven’t gotten your ticket yet, you should do so at Live Nation‘s website, and I urge you to head to Copenhell‘s website to check for updates and info. Meanwhile, check out the awesomeness they have planned:

Prophets Of Rage (US)

Three members from the legendary Rage Against The Machine (Tom Morello, Tim Commerford andBrad Will), Chuck D and DJ Lord from Public Enemy, and rapper B-Real from Cypress Hill.

You can trust your favourite music magazine to bring you more news about Copenhell as they roll in, and a thorough reportage from next summer’s hell-fest!
Keep in mind, that there will be a winter-edition as well: When Copenhell Freezes Over some time in January 2017, where a handfull of upcoming hard rock and metal bands will compete for a spot on the summer edition. We hope to be able to bring you a little somthin’-somethin’ from that event.
