This summer, the second largest metal festival in Germany Summer Breeze is celebrating its 20th anniversary from 16th to 19th of August. The location is as usual Dinkelsbühl, Bavaria. The organizers have announced many surprises and special features. The expectations are high accordingly.
The Summer Breeze festival is always a great selection of well-known bands and exciting newcomers. This year's festival offers an absolute top choice of female fronted metal bands. The entire range from soft to absolutely brutal will be present. The big ones are of course Epica, Xandria and Delain. But they are accompanied by many other great bands such as Battle Beast and Eluveitie that will be present with their new line-up. Eluveitie will also do a second, acoustic show. But newer bands will get their chances as well. Especially The Charm The Fury with their mix of Metalcore and Modern Metal and Infected Rain will really kick some ass. The female fronted bands are completed by the horror punk band Kitty in a Casket from Austria and Cellar Darling from Switzerland including former Eluveitie singer Anna Murphy.
Of course, the remaining line-up is also worth watching and contains bands for every metal fan out there. This year, the headliners will be Korn, Amon Amarth and Heaven Shall Burn. So, if you haven’t done it, yet, buy your Summer Breeze tickets, pack your camping equipment and get ready for the metal party of the year.
Magna Femina will also be present. There will be a special report about the Summer Breeze in our 3rd issue. See you there.
