HEADBANGERS' WEEKEND FESTIVAL - First Bands Leaked2015-03-11
Swedish Symphonic Metal masters THERION have been the latest band to confirm its participation on Turkey's HEADBANGERS' WEEKEND FESTIVAL through their Official Website. Despite the lack of information from the organizers, it seems that this year's edition will likely take place on 29th and 30th August at Küçükçiftlik Park in Istanbul, Turkey. Turkish Black metallers MORIBUND OBLIVION have also included this event on the list of their upcoming tour dates. Greek Extreme metallers ROTTING CHRIST also announced last month their participation on this festival, what was reported by several Metal webzines back then.
Anyway, all this information is not official yet, given that it's taken from social networks and from the bands' websites, due to the lack of any official statament from Vera Music, the event's organizers. Apart from these, there are rumours about the participation of other bands that if true, would please many Turkish metalheads. Anyway, the only bands that have officially announced that will perform in this festival are the aforementioned.
Last year's edition of HEADBANGERS' WEEKEND FESTIVAL was highlined by Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM. It also featured big names within the international Metal scene such as EPICA, SUIDAKRA and Myrath, as well as Turkish metallers DREAM OCEAN and MURDER KING
