Burning churches, smashed cars, gallows, raging Vikings, floods of beer and tons of metal. Sounds like a great festival? It is! Welcome to hell.... COPENHELL!!!
COPENHELL is Denmark's greatest rock and metal festival, which has drawn metal fans to Copenhagen since the beginning of 2010. The peninsula called 'Refshaleøen' right in the middle of Copenhagen is the epicenter of these three days of hell on earth, and the raw, industrial surrounds are the perfect background for the brutal decibel bombardment from COPENHELL's three stages.
The festival is held annually at the old B&W shipyard in Copenhagen, where ships and powerful diesel engines were manufactured for more than a hundred years. The monumental halls still loom ominously over the unbreakable concrete site, and the worn railway tracks towards the dock attest to the colossal metal monstrosities that were built by a workforce of 8,000 men until 1996.
Festival line up's can be discussed from here to eternity – some would ask for more of one genre and others would disagree and want the opposite. Copenhell has a line-up for almost every metal fan out there and we will let you be the judge and check out this years line up at www.copenhell.dk

In my personal point of view, Copenhell is an awesome festival, that has exactly what a metal festival needs: Burning churches, smashed cars, gallows, raging Vikings, floods of beer and tons of metal!
