The annual music festival, Hellfest, notched up its 10th anniversary in Clisson, France from June 19 to June 21.
The 10thÂ annual Hellfest Open Air Festival took place in Clisson, France last weekend, and pretty much solidified itself as the European festival of the Summer of 2015.
Night one not only featured headlining sets from Slipknot, Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Lamb Of God, MotÃ¶rhead, and Billy Idol, but also Orchid, High On Fire, Mastodon, and Sodom.
Night two featuredÂ Scorpions (who played before and during spectacular firework displays,) Faith No More, ZZ Top, Slash, and Marilyn Manson headlining. Â Besides,Â Killing Joke, Ace Frehley, L7, and Venom, and Body CountÂ also delivered strong performances.
Night three was topped off by Korn, Limp Bizkit, In Flames, and Cavalera Conspiracy, but not before OFF!, The Exploited, Triptykon, and Cannibal Corpse kept the energy going on the smaller stages.
Not many festivals can pull off such an incredible and diverse line-up of bands, but once again Hellfest has succeeded.
