A few words about the VINCE NEIL show

Dear friends,

last Friday night, Vince Neil was main act of BANG YOUR HEAD!!! 2017. Many of you were present that evening and witnessed me getting on stage right after his appearance and saying a few words about it. To my surprise, this public reaction of mine has attracted a lot of attention including instant media coverage, that was featuring some, yet not all of what happened and was said by me. Therefore, I'd like to set the a few things right.

First of all: It is correct that I, reacting spontanously to what I had heard, seen and wondered about before, apologized in public to the audience for the set length after Vince Neil left the stage.

Schedule signing sessions

As every year, there will be lots of signing/autograph sessions with your favorite artists at BANG YOUR HEAD!!!. Find the latest schedule here: http://www.bang-your-head.de/site_byh/signing-sessions-2017

Ticket presales: close to deadline!

As this year's edition of BANG YOUR HEAD!!! is getting closer and closer, we'd like to draw your attention to our ticket ordering deadlines.

Tickets for delivery adresses outside of Germany have to be ordered until June 29.

This refers to orders at our webstore www.shop.bang-your-head.de. After that date, you may still order your tickets as print-at-home tickets here:

Countdown for domestic orders is running, too:

PARADOX cancelled - ASSASSIN jump in!

Unfortunately, PARADOX can not be part of the big metal party in July: Like in 2002, Charly Steinhauers health conditions made their appearance at the festival impossible.

But we've already found a more than reasonable substitute, who also serves hard riffs from Germany: Assassin are coming to Balingen. The guys from Düsseldorf are thrashing hard again since their reunion 15 years ago. Among bands like DESTRUCTION, SODOM or KREATOR, they belong to the first wave of German thrash metal, and with their latest release 'Combat Cathedral' the four guys just proved their qualities.

We are really looking forward to a riff thunderstorm at Saturday noon!

Details zur HAMMERFALL-Special-Show

As already mentioned, the show of our Saturday headlining act HAMMERFALL will be a truly extraordinary concert experience. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic 'Glory To The Brave', the Swedes planned something really special for you, which - on German ground - will exclusively happen at BANG YOUR HEAD!!! Festival.

The band will not be alone on stage but will be reinforced by a trio, that belongs to the top artists of the Swedish folk scene: DRAUPNER. Together with these three guys, one of them three times Fiddle world champion Magnus Holmström, HAMMERFALL will do an extended 'Glory To The Brave' session, that never happened before.

This is what vocalist Joacim Cans says about it
