Trivia

Active since 2006 the festival has been met with much controversy as well as much praise from the metal world.

Despite its worldwide acclaim, religious French residents have not embraced the festival as well as its enthusiastic attendees.

Not only did sponsor Coca Cola pull out in 2009 due to right wing and religious group pressure, but the festival was also sued and asked to no let under 18's into such an apparently demonic festival.

Hellfest also found it's way into politics with MPF Phillipe De Villiers stating in a campaign "Our values are not like those of the Regional Council (PS) to be funding a satanic festival."

Despite this the festival manages to pull in many fans and many high profile acts such as Slayer, Kiss and Iggy and the Stooges.
