“With this announcement, we are now expanding next year’s festival billing to 20 bands. As in previous years, we are aiming for a balanced mix of folk, medieval, Viking, and pagan metal and rock. This musical bandwidth reflects the philosophy behind our festival, which is based on an ambience created by medieval fantasy worlds. In order to make it easier for the fans to plan their holidays and travels, we aim to present our full program already by the end of the summer.”
