DEE SNIDER, LYNCH MOB, FEMME FATALE AND A (DIRTY) DOZEN MORE BANDS ANNOUNCED FOR HARD ROCK HELL 2017 9th February 2017
The three day music festival that is Hard Rock Hell (HRH) celebrated its tenth anniversary in style late last year, and no sooner had those who enjoyed the weekend arrived home than the organisers, Chic Festivals, announced Airbourne, Y&T, Gun, Syteria and The New Roses as the first acts confirmed for the next event to be held in November 2017.
Now the organisers have announced a slew of bands and artists with Twisted Sister legend Dee Snider leading the way. Snider performed what Twisted Sister said were their final shows last year whilst he also found time to release his new solo album, 'We Are The Ones', but the iconic frontman isn't done with us yet. He's returning to the UK this winter to headline the Thursday evening and unleash a torrent of creative fury at Camp HRH.
Also announced are Lynch Mob. One of the most influential eighties guitarists, George Lynch, developed a ground-breaking brand of guitar virtuoso and HRH are proud to welcome this legendary band to the stage. More talent to cross the Atlantic are HRH Favourites Tyketto, currently on a high after the reception of their most recent album, 'Reach', and the reformed Femme Fatale featuring Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and The Iron Maidens guitar virtuoso, Courtney Cox.
Also on the line- up, you can expect a big curve ball of anthems from Reef who will be joined by the incredible talents of The Answer, Von Hertzen Brothers and Australia's Black Aces. On stage two, you can look forward to performances from Burnt Out Wreck (featuring Gary Moat, ex-Heavy Pettin’), Syron Vanes, Killcode, Florence Black, The Jokers, Fire Red Empress, Colour Of Noise, The Kut and Louder Still.
Based at the The Hafan y Môr Holiday Park outside the Welsh town of Pwllheli, Hard Rock Hell offers a range of bands split over the three days. The festival really has a 'something for everyone' feel about it, and the fact it sells out every year has a lot to say about the venue, the entertainment and the organisation.
HRH XI will take place between Thursday 9th and Sunday 12th November 2017, amidst the beautiful landscape of North Wales. Once again the HRH community will come together for the ultimate mash-up of loud, live music and malarkey that makes up an HRH event, along with the quality accommodation you'd expect from Europe's leading residential festivals.
Jonni Davis told us: "We're not resting on our laurels or anything else: 2017 is going to be the biggest adventure yet! We're taking the HRH experience out to Australia, NZ and Singapore; meanwhile fresh new branches are growing from the HRH tree here in the UK - new genres and niches of rock and Metal that our community want us to add into the mix.
"It's going to be a Hell of a year, and of course we'll still be delivering our core events. HRH XI is going to be the best yet! Bring it on!"
