Iron Maiden finally play at Hellfest in June. So happy?

Barbaud Ben: Yes, we are obviously very happy to have them. This is a very unifying group in hard rock and metal. It has not been easy to have. We made ​​them an offer very early, even before the 2013 edition. The group heard a lot about the festival and seemed to play. But I confess that you are not necessarily believed in 2014, I would imagine 2015. And finally, it went well pinned. At that point, when I went to see the band and his staff at the festival Rock in Rio, Brazil, they came to us already confirmed.

You also advertise Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple. This is an incredible meeting of legends ...

It is true that the 2014 vintage promises to be exceptional. Such a meeting is unprecedented in France. Aerosmith was coming last year, Black Sabbath, there are two years. For various reasons, it had not been done. This year we got lucky. For the first time in the festival's history, we are able to announce that almost all the shows in December. We want to give a big spotlight now. [Yes. This year there were many artists available. They earn so little with their record sales, they now want to come every summer in Europe. They also know that these are the festivals that pay the most, not the rooms. I take the example of Slayer: this group is available all year. Festivals like mine are solicited from all sides, and suddenly, the managers start working early to put their artists.I think this trend will continue. Therefore, having a poster of Hellfest almost complete in December will probably most outstanding in the years to come. First come, first served. It is we who impose the rhythm.

Budget Hellfest he was revised upwards for the occasion?

It is obviously out on a bigger budget, with the highest artistic envelope of France, about 4.5 million euros (one million more than last year, Ed). This is related to what combination of circumstances, which enabled us to win the big three groups at once. Despite a slight deficit last year's edition, we do not want to play small arms. We thought we would try to offer an edition of a new level in France. [20 €. That means we will be a pass 180 €. Yes, it's expensive, but it is at rates that are practiced right left in Europe. Download festival in England offers a pass whose price flirts with € 200. The most expensive festival is still in France, more than ever, no doubt, but it is also the least well funded. A festival of equivalent size as Rock en Seine key euros in subsidies per year about one million. We are touched € 40,000 per year. It affects the price of the ticket. And it is the only festival to offer 159 groups in three days.

This poster has the potential to allow you to quickly complete with 40,000 festivalgoers per day. Last summer, the Hellfest had known this crowd on Saturday, and some festival felt to walk on ...

The poster is very attractive for the purists as the general public, and I think it will be complete soon enough. Our job will be to prepare for this eventuality and to review the organization of the site. We heard the criticism from those who thought it was very tight and difficult to move, that Saturday. We will try to find ways to make the most comfortable site. Was fully aware that the success of Hellfest is not based on music, but also the atmosphere, the fun feel good. We always listened to the complaints and really wants to improve not to lose it.

Blimey :shock: I'll give Sonisphere another announcement, maybe 2 depending on how many they announce, but I think it's going to have to be Hellfest this year.

I don't recognise 75% of those bands and I wouldn't go to France to see the others when I could catch most of them in the UK next year. But I'm not the target audience so, shrug.

Seventeen bands on that lineup that I'd go out of my way to see. Also, great job in spelling Flogging Molly wrong.

From that, here's hoping SOnisphere can get Turbonegro, Flogging Molly, Electric Wizard, Clutch, Protest the Hero and not frakking Queensryche.

I don't really follow death/black/thrash metal at all, so most of the Temple and Altar band names mean nothing to me :lol:

There's the occasional one like Gorgoroth and Nile that I recognise simply from knowing people amongst the general Bloodstock crowd and occasional perusals of Metal Hammer or Terrorizer. Tsjuder, Gorguts, et cetera, however, nope. Not a clue.

I recognize most of the names there, but I also know that a lot of them suck. One major problem I have with that line-up is that morons will suggest that there will be a Sepultura reunion show because Sepultura and Soulfly are on the same bill.

I'm very tempted by that line up. Just depends on what Sonisphere pulls out of the bag and money of course.

I have never been to a festival outside of the UK so I'm hoping Soni hurry up before I start spending money I don't have.

From what I remember I think it's like Sonisphere in that the two mainstages alternate.

Great line up, but everyone seems to be praising it and trashing UK line ups, most of these bands will end up at UK festivals anyways, I think it just looks a lot better at this stage because they have the majority out as opposed to 2 bands haha.

So many people that are saying "Hellfest kicks the gooseberry out of Download and Sonisphere this year".

I mean, Download I can sort of understand because they're further through that lineup, but it's still too early days to be saying it. But saying it kicks Sonisphere's arse when only two bands have been announced? It's frakking crazy.

There's no market in the UK for anything like Hellfest on that scale so it's a ridiculous comparison to make. I'd love it if Sonisphere had that sort of line-up but I know it will never happen.
