HELLFEST Crew has issued the following, via their Official Webpage:
Only 20 days left before the festival begins ! We are all very excited to welcome you and we can’t wait for you to discover the new configuration of Hellfest 2014 ! We also want to inform you about the little “last minute” changes :
DEATH ANGEL have cancelled their tour, but the Americans will still perform at Hellfest for an exclusive date!
SLAYER and TRIVIUM will swap places on Main stage 2. Slayer will play from 11 p.m to midnight and Trivium from 1 :05 to 2 :15 a.m. !
As you know, MEGADETH have cancelled their tour as well, because David Ellefson’s brother died. They will be replaced by the cult Trash Metal band DARK ANGEL (main 1 / 23rd / 6 :45 to 7 :45 p.m.). The Californians are more than ready to appear for the first time at Hellfest.
Finally, because of issues within the band, DOWNSET have to cancel their participating in Hellfest. We’ll tell you who’ll replace them as soon as possible !
