Beermageddon proved itself to be Britain's fastest growing festival after a second sold out year in a larger venue over the August Bank Holiday, Bromsgrove did not know what hit it as Metalheads from around the world descended on the sleepy village of Stoke Prior for a weekend live, loud, unadulterated Metal, cementing it's place as the newest established festival in the UK.

Once again lauded by reviewers, fans and bands alike Beermageddon returns to Stoke Prior 22nd - 24th August 2014 and the first announcements prove the growth the festival has made over the past two years!

So prepare to Bounce Up And Down, this is the real deal! Lawnmower Deth Headline Saturday night at BEERMAGEDDON!!!

Returning as Friday Headliners 2014, Beermageddon will once again witness Skreamer. Heralded as one of THE bands of Beermageddon 2013, in the true ethos of the festival we welcome back one of the bands you demanded you want to see again in a full headline slot.

You witnessed what can only be described as a full on, neck breaking, complete experience. Skreamer made a huge impact not only at Beermageddon but also at Bloodstock Open Air, proving the band are truly establishing themselves on the festival circuit and in fans hearts. In Beermageddon style we are bringing back Skreamer to provide a full headline slot on Friday night!

You demanded it, and we supplied, once again Skreamer will tear Stoke Prior apart!!

2012 was just the beginning... Once again an invasion from North of the Border!! Diementia are back.

Glasgow based Diementia will once again cross the border for Beermageddon bringing their hard and heavy assault of melodic death/thrash Metal and their brand new frontman to Stoke Prior.

Since taking the Beermageddon stage in 2012 Diementia have had an amazing run.

After a string of amazing shows including pillaging England at Sunkfest this year the band have earned their slot to once again bang heads in Bromsgrove.

If you missed Diementia in 2012, you are in for a treat in 2014!!

As announced at Beermageddon 2013 we welcome the return of Divine Chaos.

It is an honour to welcome back the brilliant Divine Chaos who will take to the stage at Beermageddon, and after what can only be described as a set of pure face ripping metal at this years festival, they are looking forward to banging your heads again!!!

Just when you thought it was safe to remove the neck brace... Divine Chaos will break you one more time!!

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
