Hellfest open air

Hellfest Open air 2016

When I was in college / beginning of school I saw of a veeeeeery jinxes everything that could seem me a little extreme music. I felt very strong to the urban legend of “metal groups hide subliminal in their songs messages so their fans commit suicide” and others “If you listen to Nirvana you'll finish drugged”. All the theatrical side around some groups made me downright Pinball, and I was hyper impressed by those who dressed all in black with some big shoes haircell with chains and the piercing in high school (I expected their suicide from one day to another also).

And then I know not why, but the year of my bin ended that fascinate me and I listened to pretty much everything that could scare me throughout my teens. Nothing too hardcore nor, I spent just looped Korn albums, Marilyn Manson, S&Metallica M. I remember reading fascinated, almost in secret, the very bad book by Marilyn Manson released in 2000 (I believe) Virgin mega store from gare Montparnasse in the meantime my train and be told “but hey it's actually caisses for whatever yucky but all this is just a farce to get scared as when we look at a horror movie”. And as I loved horror movies necessarily I dug.

They listened to groups a little dummies with my sister in our room, genus Mass Hysteria, with the poster for contraddiction blase hung somewhere just because our mother found it horrible. And piss off his parents when one is in high school it is not price.

All this long intro for you say that it has me mi amused, Mi a little disappointed me take Pikes on social networks when I posted photos of the Hellfest where I was recently. As if I had gone to my Poser. For that I just have to go to Rock in seine instead of me 800 terminals round trip, Camper parking during 4 days and pee in a chemical toilet.



I went there because I really want to go there, share everything with my buddies and laugh, see incredible concerts, live at the single rate of concerts during 3 days and discover a whole bunch of groups that I never knew.



And I have lived much more because the atmosphere was crazy. It was the festival of tolerance where you could eat a sandwich as a gluten-free vegan burrito steak. I've seen people come in family, papi, Children, small children, No matter how disguised people : by toucan, in jesus, in Papa Smurf, guys dressed up as maid, Disney Princess or.




I saw a little girl of 12 years having fun like crazy to do air guitar on a table during a concert, people enter the zip line above the crowd. I have no photos of this because I have no great talent to take strangers in picture (I'm shy) and especially I spent my time standing on a crate to listen to music than to take pictures.




I myself am somewhat Avenged on the decorations before entering the festival. It was pretty stunning, It seemed to suddenly enter another universe, and all of this attention to unneeded details gave the feeling that everything was especially made to Karami.







I giggled a lot, full of music discovered, Sung “I want to know what love is” departing on the Ferris wheel, seen for the first time groups of my 18 years in concert.

I had already understood that those who belong to a minority or who are passionate about a counter culture are often much more tolerant and nice people than the average long (not all of course, There are idiots everywhere), but then this HellFest was my ultimate evidence.









Very hard, I hope to return next year (tickets soar even before that programming be announced). And thanks to my friends for these 4 days of madness <3

      It drank some shots in town the first night (and it's actually beautiful) but all the following days it was taped on the site so no regrets ;)

  10. 29 June 2016 at 19:51

    Same experience, even felt, see you next year!

  11. 29 June 2016 at 20:45

    It's always like that with people, saw that you share on a blog or on instagram things they think you know, me too when I saw that you were at Hellfest I say, “Han I knew not that it was his kind of music” but that's all, OULA EC that people are stupid and evil sometimes ! I am happy for you that you be broken you, and the haters it shows them hehe middle finger !

    It is not at all the kind of music that I listen to but your pictures and the report gives want to go nothing for the atmosphere!! :p

  13. 29 June 2016 at 23:29

    Y a pas à dire le meilleur des publics ce sont bien les métalleux !!
    I did the Download Festival in Paris, with apprehension at first, and I discovered that these people are judged on their appearance and their musical tastes are more user friendly and more environmentally friendly !! I did the Solidays this weekend : a DISAPPOINTMENT ! That minor children who can't drink without any bullshit, who do know to throw their trash in the trash, who jostle and fly at any va… I felt more safe with metalheads with people “standards”. Comme quoi, long live the Hellfest and the Download and I cross fingers for a Hellfest pass next year. Very good article in any case, I am never disappointed ;)

    The 800 terminals are profitable ! I wish you to restack the next year.

  16. 30 June 2016 at 9:58

    I admit having been surprised by seeing your photos of Hellfest on the instagram, It seemed so far from the clichés of Disney Land !
    And yet, moi aussi, youngest, I lived in a sphere of metalheads. More by love and friendship by musical taste, I must admit. Of course, I adhered to certain groups, I went to some concerts with hyper-saturated guitar. And the friends who know me today snigger when I speak of this kind of aesthetic, I who have a big hippie head !
    This year, It seemed to me see more images of the Hellfest than usual. And even though I'm not a fan of the poster (except Apocalypitica, I was a fan !), I confess that it gives rather want to discover this jilted !

  17. 30 June 2016 at 10:21

    Bravo for these beautiful photos ! I especially like that of the foodtruck, She has a beautiful grain. Bravo :-)

  18. 30 June 2016 at 11:30

    Oh it looks too well ! I knew not too this style of music until I meet my companion who looove (It's his dream to go to the Hellfest ^ ^.) and little by little I am converted ahah.
    And I quite agree with your sentence “those who belong to a minority or who are passionate about a counter culture are often much more tolerant and nice people than average” : This is true even if of course, il y a des exceptions.

    In any case the pictures are crazy, the decorations look crazy ! It really makes you want to go :)

  19. 30 June 2016 at 14:02

    He looks really top this festival !! I did not stop to hear good things his! The atmosphere should be electric, CA me would really well. And I think that it's worth a ride even if it is not absolute fan of metal.
    Your photos are very cool!

  20. 30 June 2016 at 15:14

    I loved your photos on instagram precisely, I do not like this music but I am fascinated by passionate people, you have had to see beautiful specimens out there.
    Have fun and let people talk, who cares what they say brothel !

  21. 30 June 2016 at 15:53

    Coucou !

    Aaaah I so wanted to go this year T_T I have had to give up, lack of means ! I'm saving already for years following ahah :D thanks much for your photos, Are top !

  22. 30 June 2016 at 17:45

    I must admit that seeing the title of your article I was a bit surprised (I'm not on insta) but I did not think “Poser” or whatever it is. And when even though you have not been in this ado delir, well, you have the right to go have fun with friends for a weekend! People judge so fast!
    I have to say that I was more rap / hip hop ado and that this kind of music does not attract me absolutely. But this festival really great looks. And the downright demented decorations!

  23. 1 July 2016 at 10:58

    I am passionate about music and I listen trashs stuff (to return to Nirvana, This is my generation…), and I have many festivals (and chemical toilets ;)) behind me. I respect the artists who make their live performances and kids stuff which I am happy do not understand the lyrics.

    Yet I found that everything that revolves around this music is decadent, degrading and immoral.
    The devil, evil, It amuses me more at my age.
    I'm fanatic nor the cross to the place or the cross upside down. I fear these gatherings “evil”, as I do not agree nor necessarily religious gatherings. They'll say that it is nothing a fun. May be. I answer that has our time there are ways to have fun funny, It's medieval limit.
    I also find that it is not of the counterculture since this kind of jilted is funded (Let us be honest and give the correct definition in the counterculture, If it is subsidized is that it is part of the dominant culture)
    It is not so much the HellFest that bothers me. It is his side mainstream.

    I love music, even the trash, but taking back there are things that bother me.

    In any case the jilted cradingue I did it is the eurocks. When you say that there are still a few cons, I believe that they had all gathered in Belfort!

      “This kind of jilted is funded” : oui, often, but not the Hellfest precisely…

    • 6 July 2016 at 14:59

      Bonjour Lili,

      Pour rebondir sur ton commentaire. No Hellfest is not a subsidized following (is no longer and that 20 000 € on a budget of 16 million it has ever weigh heavy in the balance…)

      “On the side of mainstream” … ? This is a trick that I listened to quite a lot and really I understand… Since when Korplikani, Myrkur, Halestorm, and on the other are groups “mainstream” We see here. When large headliners not in déplaises to some it is thanks to their reputation and their passage as the Hellfest that the following still exists and that it allows us to discover groups that rarely turns in France. ;-)

      For the decadent side… I've never had this impression may be because metal music with me for a long time now. After course y' extremes across a. I love the theatricality of some show.

    J’ai du mal à voir ton site en français (très difficile de selectionner la langue en haut à gauche) mais par pitié, demande les services d’un traducteur ou vire celui que tu utilises car la version anglaise est du charabia! A moins que tu ne te serves de Google translate? Sérieux c’est illisible!

    • 2 July 2016 at 15:08

      In fact I have not really afford to pay someone so it's automatic, sorry ;)

  25. 2 July 2016 at 22:53

    Good evening !
    I followed with a sooooo great interest the HellFest via your SnapChat account. To tell you the truth, Although I know your tastes in favour of pretty things, Disney and so on, It is absolutely not surprised me you see. It rather amused me in imagining that you were these girls who hear maybe more this kind of music but who listened to him in college/high school and which could finally see these groups who lined the walls of their teenage girls room and horror to their parents. I've seen rather just :D !
    I find myself also not bad in this description. I listened to much, I listen again, but without knowing me really, old albums remind me that I could be a few years ago. You do puzzles and take baths for stress relief, Personally I run with good big rock in the ears, each moments “relaxation” Ah ah.
    I also do not have “the head of the employment” and I surprised often more than one but WHO CARES :D.
    You enormously gave me desire to go there to experience this same as you ! Maybe not in 2017 (where the interest that you are go so I revive it via your Story :/), but it is now on my list of things to do absolutely INCESSAMMENT SOUS little !

  26. 3 July 2016 at 13:52

    It is so well as festival, This year it was my 2nd time, and I am already looking forward to next year (hoping that programming suitable one anyway)! Your pictures are too cool <3

  27. 6 July 2016 at 15:03


    You helped my depression post Hellfest there (Finally mostly morning and evening pass site and see day after day the disassembly…) So live it is a crazy thing.

    On the remarks that you could have it made me smile because sometimes does not “Porter” (the duds which ^^) the kind of music you listen to is not you someone legitimate for some… It is heartbreaking but it is like that.

    See you next year ! ;) (Finally if it is fast when the pass will be put on sale what ^^ )

  28. 7 July 2016 at 16:31

    To attend very (très) regular metal environments & rock (My guy is musician and metalheads… !), I've never felt as well, comfortable, accepted without be judged within them that elsewhere. As you marked, There is a true tolerance and a far spirit of shadow that most people may have on these “weird people all in black, long hair and tattoos”… (which I was a party to the Lycée ;))
    Thanks for your report’ ! I hope to have the opportunity to go there soon !

  29. 10 July 2016 at 22:13

    wow…stunning pics :)
