Metalcamp is a metal festival annually taking place in Tolmin, Slovenia and putting high its motto “Hell over Paradise”. The Metalcamp history takes us back to the year of 2002 when they tried to make a big metal festival in Vienna and that event was so successful that in 2003 it took not 1 but the whole 2 days. The next 2004 year appeared to be the breaking point, because the Arena where it was held in 2002 and 2003 wasn’t available for this kind of festivals anymore. That’s why it crossed the borders, got to the Tolmin-town in Slovenia and finally became the Metalcamp! The place was not only perfect and beautiful, but also kind of unique, because it was in the Julische Alpen national park with the one of a kind nature and two rivers (So?a und Tolminka), that’s why Metalcamp could offer not only a ground-breaking hevay metal program, but also a very nice and unforgettable vacation fun time. In the following years Metalcamp kept getting bigger and bigger – in 2005 it took 3 days and in 2007 – the whole week with 5 days of music festival + 2 days vacation in the woods at the water. You can take a look at the pictures from there to get an idea of how cool and original is it. The attendance let us classify Metalcamp as a middle capacity event gathering between 10.000-15.000 people.
Metalcamp is organized by an Austrian promoted Rock The Nation and a Slovenian company Master of Metal. It has usually 2 stages: a big one for the internationally acclaimed bands and a smaller one for the young and local acts.
