COPENHELL FEATURE


Feature By: Aishath Boskma

One of the first open air music festivals in Denmark, Copenhell has been going strong since 2010. In its short, but illustrious history, the event has drawn in global giants such as Slayer, Five Finger Death Punch, Megadeth, Gojira, Iron Maiden and many more. Taking place from the 21st to 23rd of June, this year, tens of thousands of metal fans will descend on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen to witness the 9th edition of this spectacular festival.

Highlights: The unstoppable Ozzy Osbourne, metal royalty whose reign has spanned the better part of five decades, was Copenhell's first major headline announcement, and with Ozzy Osbourne slowly slipping into retirement, this is one of the final chances to see a legend. Megastars Avenged Sevenfold likewise promise to bring their signature high energy performance, and don't forget to add, the ever theatrical and enigmatic, Ghost, who will also be gracing the stage. Only months to go and even more joining the roster, 2018 looks to be a good year indeed to add Copenhell to your "festival list".
