The new Metal Festival in Austria

The new Metal Festival in Wiesen/Austria, which will celebrate its premiere from 22nd to 23rd  July 2022, presents itself under the metal-cult motto HELL AWAITS.

With the covered outdoor area and a second stage in the hall, the HELL AWAITS offers optimal and above all weather-independent conditions, both for the more than 30 bands represented across all metal genres and for the headbangers present.

The Festival Area in Wiesen

Located at the northern end of Wiesen in Burgenland it covers an area of about 1.2 ha. The main stage is housed in a tent, which offers the metal audience protection from the sun and rain and opens up to the open-air area on one side. In addition, this is slightly uphill and opens into the foothills of an adjoining forest, offering an optimal view of the main stage even in the back areas.

The natural Camping Site

The park and camping area is located a few hundred meters from the festival grounds. This area was deliberately designed to be as natural as possible. Brambles and overgrown mounds serve as boundaries. Nevertheless, it is equipped with shower and toilet facilities that are connected to the local sewage system and maintained around the clock by cleaning staff. This means that HELL AWAITS Festival is Dixie-free!

The Green Location

Wiesen was included in the catalog of the most environmentally conscious festival locations in Europe, received the Austrian Solar Prize 2015 and the Burgenland Environmental Prize 2016, and the festival site is also officially certified as a Green Location with the Austrian Ecolabel. You really can’t get any greener than this!
