DEVILSTONE Open Air, Lithuanian metal music festival, apparently the biggest and the most rapidly growing throughout the Baltic States, will take place for the second time in Dainuva valley of Anyksciai, on July 16-18 of this year. Highly acclaimed for the prominent debut last summer, DEVILSTONE Open Air is looking to unleash a real storm with its second coming.
No longer a secret, US death metal veterans DEICIDE are announced as one of the festival headliners, together with German thrash metal fellows TANKARD and French heavy metal enthusiasts NIGHTMARE. It is hardly possible to present these acts within a short paragraph, as all of them have their particular stories or shocking scandals, experienced throughout the long years of existence. Lithuanian front this time will be held by black metal bastards ARGHARUS and veteran brutal death metal headbangers BURYING PLACE.
The latest news report three more bands, recently added to the line-up. LIE IN RUINS shall evoke mystic old school Finnish death metal aggressiveness, while SCYTIAN will bring warlike moods from the shores of
Great Britain. And yes, there will be a doze of melodious metal as well –Spanish HELEVORN spread the spells of gothic and doom metal flavour.
All together, up to twenty bands will share the stage of DEVILSTONE Open Air this year, the selection of which is most thorough & particularly attentive. Uniqueness, creativity and professionally performed metal music are the basic criteria set for the musicians to make the DEVILSTONE an exclusive weekend. Keep an eye for the upcoming revelations of festival line-up in coming weeks, and trust the DEVILSTONE taste!
Apart from live performances, other action will be presented on the second festival stage and all around the river site. Night Rockteques of purely old-school rock will make it sleepless. Volleyball tournament will
challenge to win a Devil’s hoof as a trophy. Workshops of crafts and other creative actions shall provide a feeling of art and culture, as well as the whole town of Anyksciai, rich of unique cultural heritage and
possibilities for tourists. Beautiful and untouched nature of the festival site in Dainuva valley is also one of the festival cornerstones – the location alone is worth the trip. One shall find a cozy campsite on the
