The biggest, the best, perhaps the first heavy metal band ever? JUDAS PRIEST are old friends of Hellfest and every time they have graced the main Stage has been an evening to remember. These guys are one of a kind, truly talented and over the top with crazed solos, powerful songwriting and best of all, a new album, appropriately entitled Firepower on the way. There are no other bands who can match JUDAS PRIEST’s pedigree pound for pound and digging into what they present has always been a highlight. For fans both young and old, watching the original heavy metal gods is going to be a real treat. Unafraid to churn out album after album, these guys boast more classics than just about anyone on this year’s Hellfest lineup!
