Hellfest 2023 / Asking Alexandria gift Clisson an Electrifying Performance

Hellfest 2023 – 17 June 2023. Unlike the last time we caught up with Asking Alexandria [Cardiff 26 November 2022], their styles today were uniform black. Standing united, even the guitars matched white and then switched to black between numbers.

“If it’s your first time with us, I’ll let you know a little something – we’re here for a good time,” Cried Danny. And that’s precisely what they gave us, with theatrics, seductive numbers and Dark Void, a new song they’ve released.

I just adore the way it’s not all left up to the frontman, guitarists Ben and Cameron have so much energy they extend to us, ready for Danny to draw it all out of us.

“I know you have a long day, but I want every drop of sweat!” The whole crowd bounced to a superb set that was over way too prematurely for our liking.
