Hammerfest 7 announces first batch of acts for next Spring’s weekender including US Power metal act Kamelot. (March 12-15th)
Hammerfest is pleased to be able to bring a veritable smorgasbord of talent from across the globe headed by Thomas Youngblood’s Symphonic Power metal band Kamelot, who bring their unique blend of monstrously epic metal to set the tone for what promises to be another cracking edition as Hammerfest celebrates its Seventh year with a Pirate Metal themed event.

Hammerfest now in its regular home at Hafan Y Mor Holiday Park, Pwllheli , Gwynedd, North Wales is also pleased to announce the return of some of Hammerfest favourites headed by stoner metal legends Orange Goblin who seem to be going from strength to strength at the moment.
Joining them are two of the best Viking Metal acts around, Norway’s Einherjer and Iceland’s Skálmöld both of whom we are sure will be going Viking from the moment their longships arrive on our fine shores.
Hammerfest is also pleased to welcome back three Hammerfest regulars Evil Scarecrow , RSJ and L.A. gypsy metal act Viza – all of which we know hold a special place in the Hammerfest regulars hearts .
Also joining next spring’s event are British Heavy metal favourites Angel Witch who never fail to excite.
