Now in its seventh year, the Hard Rock Hell has a growing reputation for being one of the best of the smaller rock festivals that the UK has to offer, and the fact it has again sold out shows that there's no lack of enthusiasm for the festival.
This year, the festival runs from Thursday 28th November to Sunday 1st December and serves as an early Christmas present to its rocking punters. Over the weekend, the main stage will see sets from Australian rock legends Airbourne (who are using their appearance here as a warm up for their upcoming UK tour), Black Star Riders (led by Ricky Warwick and Thin Lizzy star Scott Gorham), Welsh rockers Skindred, Motörhead legend Phil Campbell, Snakecharmer (featuring members of Whitesnake and Thunder), New Wave Of British Heavy Metal legends Tygers Of Pan Tang as well as sets from two former lead singers of Iron Maiden – Blaze Bayley and Paul Di'Anno amongst many other top rated as well as up and coming acts.

The second stage (sponsored by Jagermeister) is no less impressive with a line up featuring Skarlet Riot, Chrome Molly, Tracer, Cage The Gods, Stormzone and the legendary Lawnmower Deth. In addition there is also the HRH Unplugged stage where artists can taken a much more leisurely approach to the their music and this stage will feature exclusive performances from Mia Klose, Massive Wagons, Bernie Torme and Skindred throughout the weekend.
With this year's festival already sold out, and tickets for Hard Rock Hell 8 in 2014 going on sale shortly, you'll have to move fast to secure what are bound to be highly sought after tickets for next year.
