It's because of the 'Ozzy & Friends' thing. That's why BLS & Slash are on on the same day.

Summary of press conference at the team HELLFEST Gibus



Any team HELLFEST was present on Thursday 29 March in Paris, specifically Gibus to give a press conference about the 2012 festival.

What can we learn from this conference?


- New site, located 500 m from the old.

- 35 000 persons can be accommodated per day.

- 2 additional scenes for more artists.

- All changes proposed should not stress the festival, we are not back to a "year 0" or remains to be tested, no turning back, the recipe remains the same. It remains only to add some ingredients and deal with the new site! "We're not back in 2007!"

- The idea is to get a livable and enjoyable site, it will be more decorated, more scenographies are expected.

- The number of volunteers was seen to increase to 2000!

- The "Valley" is the equivalent of "Terrorizer Tent" and offer a capacity of 4000 seats.

- The "War-Zone" is the equivalent of the "Hard Rock Tent" and offer a 6000-seat capacity.

- The two new scenes "The Altar" and "Temple" will offer a capacity of 8000 seats each and will be contained in a type of capital ever seen in France, the two scenes are indeed under the same tent, all that separates well past. (Note: some logic!)

- The Mainstages be the same as that used for the coming of KISS in 2010, the largest they will allow the team to store more things in the context of the coming of larger groups!

- A larger budget was used for the maintenance of health, you should be able to wash or relieve you in better conditions!

- Concerts will be filmed by Directstar the purpose of retransmission following months on the chain above-named!

- ARTE filming a documentary at the festival.

- Pre-sales suggest that the festival will be full house, because at the moment, 20,000 for each day are pre-sold!

- Many foreigners (Spanish, English, German) are expected on this issue!

- More scenes involve more journalists, a press area larger (with a conference for journalists + PC)

- Guns N 'Roses close the evening of Saturday evening, "expected delay" said Ben Barbaud, humor of course! Wink

- The cars will still not be allowed at the campsite, for reasons of security about the size of the reserved area.

- The Metal Corner will kept it closed at 4am.

- The team chooses the groups involved in this show compared to their taste but also in relation to demand. The festival is always an eclectic view.

- The festival is increasingly accepted by the media, for proof, 20minutes came into contact with the team to ensure the 2012 edition! The team is pleased to see the extreme music to be increasingly accepted by the media!

- Van Halen had to be there, unfortunately they have canceled a tour to North America, the offer would be more attractive.

- Again, remember that Ben Barbaud METALLICA and AC / DC will not come to HELLFEST, "earlier today these are groups that are worth the price of the 170 we bring together each year" says it "group stages, which do not need festivals like HELLFEST."

- The team hopes to receive IRON MAIDEN in the coming years, but states that see in 2013 is unrealistic and that they will surely be at Sonisphere next year.

- Tenacious D was also cited during the conference, Ben explains Barbaud think that given the stamp applied by the group and their rate of popularity in France, lower compared to England, to bring them to HELLFEST would be a waste of time and money. He hoped a mistake and see that he was wrong in bringing them to a future edition and see the coming profitable.

- The overlap will be greater, in fact, this year, will play three scenes simultaneously, the choice will Cornelian!

- Replacement of Black Sabbath with Ozzy & Friends was the best solution for the festival, who did not want Ozzy to return this year due to the presence of the latter to the 2011 edition. However, they were promised that Ozzy play a show "Black Sabbath" as it was originally intended, so a new show than last year. In addition, negotiations with other groups to replace Black Sabbath proving to be almost trivial, this solution proved to be the most reasonable.

- Motley Crue was always intended to play at the opening of Black Sabbath, they are the ones who have contacted the Hellfest to come this year, despite the small disagreement between the group and the team's Hellfest in 2009. They should play on the slot 20h, Sunday evening. Ever, they were expected to replace, "in which case" like GunsN'Roses was planned from the beginning.

- Why thematic scenes? The team responded that this makes the display easier to read, to better appreciate, more than if the groups were placed on the stage without regard for the style they play. In addition, some fans of a specific style not like being mixed with others.

- Merchandise will be dispersed in two outlets this year, the quotas will be seen on the rise, more goods will be offered.

- Ben Barbaud spoke on the cancellation of the UK Sonisphere 2012 and as we all are concerned about what may happen to the French edition planned. When questioned on his statements about the differences between the Hellfest and Sonisphere, he replied: "There are festivals that are organized by producers for clients, and there are festivals organized by fans for fans!" Everything seems to be said! This does not prevent him from being present on the edition of last year and have fun, even if the ideology behind it is different!

- The Running Order will be announced in the next ten days.

Friday flight is going to be a rushed nightmare again. Would Ryanair not put on a frigging Thursday flight? There must be enough going to fill it.

And it's gone up in price. Now over 200 without baggage (and that's in their current sale).

Can only count 3 or 4 clashes, and they're all between a band I've seen before and a band I haven't, which makes it even easier.

Considering theres a good 40 bands I'd like to catch, that's pretty good going.

On the topic of flights, is it just me or have they skyrocketed from previous years. I was at Hellfest back in 2010, and a return flight booked the week before cost me about half what they are at the moment.

Yep, the flight prices are utterly ridiculous this year. Here's hoping they come down a bit.

The running order seems to be ok, few clashes but nothing major.
