Hard Rock Hell launched a new standard in UK metal and rock festivals. Taking place across three days at Butlins in Minehead, Somerset on November 9-11, 2007, the sold-out festival was an enormous success, bringing together acts such as TWISTED SISTER, SAXON, CRADLE OF FILTH, TURISAS, MY DYING BRIDE, ZODIAC MINDWARP and TESLA in a unique setting.

Taking up where last years festival left off, HRH II will span four decades over six arenas and feature 50 bands. This year's rock ritual will feature all Lords of the Riff and turn it into another 48-hour maelstrom of rock 'n' metal. HRH II's selection of bands will not disappoint, with some incredible exclusives, rare appearances from the vault and even a trio of bands never witnessed on stage together to answer calls for a space, prog, psychedelic rock arena on the Friday night.

Tickets include two nights accommodation and entrance to all six arenas as well as free car parking. Limited "early bird" tickets start from 90 GBP.

Hard Rock Hell picked up the award for "Best Rock Festival" of 2007 at last week's Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards.
