Blastfest Announce First Bands for 2017 Festival

Following on from this year’s all Norwegian line-up extravaganza, which saw performances from Abbath, Gorgoroth, IhsahnTaake, In The Woods, 1349 and many more, and with special guests such as Green Carnation playing their epic Light of Day, Day Of Darkness album in full and a blistering comeback from Red Harvest to name just a few highlights, the organisers behind Norway’s Blastfest have already started to announce 2017’s fittingly epic line-up which is set to run over four days in February 2017.

Building on the success of the past three years, Blastfest are setting the bar high from the off once again with Devin Townsend Project, Napalm Death, Dying Fetus, Hell, Horna, Batushka, Emptiness, Ajattara, Benighted, Misþyrming, Trident, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, IXXI, Deluge, Auðn, Aspherium and Doomas being confirmed from the outset for the Bergen based four-day event. And, in true Blastfest fashion, there has to be at least one special billing, this announcement revealing the one and only Peste Noire and the scheduling of their very first live appearance on Norwegian soil.

Blastfest will be held in Bergen, Norway from 22nd – 25th February 2017.
