Napalm Events will bring Arch Enemy, Lacuna Coil, Tuxedoo and DeviDriver to Graz's Castle Hill in August
By IQ on 21 Mar 2016
Napalm Events, the live events arm of Austrian label Napalm Records, has announced plans for its first festival, Metal on the Hill.
The event will be held on the Schlossberg (‘Castle Hill’) in Graz, Austria, on 12 and 13 August and feature a mixture of European and American metal bands, including Arch Enemy, DevilDriver, Satyricon, Lacuna Coil and Moonspell, who will “riff all of southern Austria out of its slumber”.
Napalm says the first day of the festival will be “in the mountain” – that is, indoors, at the 600-capacity Dom im Berg – and the second outside, at open-air venue Kasematten, which is housed inside the walls of an old fortress and has a retractable sliding roof.
Two-day tickets cost €69, or €129 for VIP passes.
Here’s the line-up so far in full:
