30-04-2008  -  Preview to the festival season!

Some amazing line-ups got arranged for this summer's festival season. In order to catch as many artists and locations as possible we had to make our choice, which wasn't an easy thing to do.

As every year, for the 5th respectively 7th time in row, Metalpics will be joining Tuska and Summer Breeze. Back on our schedule is Party.San with its unique line-up and this year, for the second time as well, Rocksound Festival. Again, there are some "new" events on too: This year, we'll be joining Hole in the Sky in the famous city of Bergen, Norway, and proudly, as official partner, the Zagreb Metal Fest in our home city Zagreb, Croatia.
