U.K.'s HARD ROCK HELL And HAMMERFEST Festivals Upgrade To Bigger Location

After four successful sellout years at Prestatyn, Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest have now decided to leave Prestatyn and venture along the North Wales Coast to a bigger more tailored site location.

The new larger haven site at Hafan y Môr in Pwllheli, will see a major hike in quality units along with bigger venues, more eateries and generally wider facilities on site. This also means that both events will effectively be increasing their capacity to bring in an altogether new more tailored rock and metal experience which will commence at Hard Rock Hell 6 in December.

Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest are operated by Chic Festivals SLU, Europe's number one operator of boutique residential festivals. John Davis, MD of Chic Festivals SLU, said, "This is the first step for us in what we see as a natural progression and is all about giving better value and an altogether better experience to the ticket buyer. For many people, Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest are the No. 1 holiday weekend destinations for the rock and metal community and we intend to give them an even better more memorable experience as well as a fantastic spread of great music."

Acts so far confirmed for this year's Hard Rock Hell include Ace Frehley, MOLLY HATCHET, BLACKFOOT, DOGS D'AMOUR, L.A. GUNS, GRAVEYARD, DIE SO FLUID and many more.
