Featuring

Apocalyptica

Apocalyptica appearing at this event

Apocalyptica are a charting, multi-platinum symphonic metal band from Helsinki, Finland. Originally formed as a metal tribute quartet, the band eventually adopted a neoclassical metal style of their own without the use of conventional guitars. Their driving sound (often accompanied by other musicians) is created via sophisticated classical techniques, a knack for reinterpreting jarring, often percussive riffs and spiraling lead lines, and multivalent textures. It has succeeded in making them an arena rock institution across the globe.

Epica

Epica appearing at this event

The female-fronted symphonic / gothic metal band from Holland emerged on the scene at the end of 2002, and has since been living in a whirlwind of studio recordings, interviews, screaming fans, live performances and a rock 'n roll lifestyle. Their music is full of significant lyrics and powerful guitar riffing alternated with cinematic interludes and Simone Simons' angelic voice.
