Paganfest ist a touring music festival with the strong emphasis on pagan, viking and folk metal. The festival is produced by “Rock The Nation” management and tours annually all over Europe, mainly in Germany and Austria, but also in Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, England etc. Every year Paganfest visits about 20+ cities and some gigs are extended and have 2-3 more bands as the special guests. The first festival had just one show and took place in Glauchau, Germany on December 2nd, 2007. Since that day Paganfest has become very popular, always having many sold-out shows all across the Europe. Nowadays it’s one of the biggest and the most popular pagan-, viking- and folk-metal touring festivals in the world. The concerts are held in the big clubs and halls, every gig gathers about 1000-2000 metal fans.

The first festival’s tour started in April 2007 and it was headlined by ENSIFERIUM with the strong participation from KORPIKLAANI, MOONSORROW, ELUVEITIE and TYR. In 2008 there was no second Paganfest and “Rock the Nation” started the infamous Heidenfest instead of this, a festival working pretty much in the same style as Paganfest (two great festivals are always better than just one). The second Paganfest took place only in 2009 and is held annually since then. Now the line-up usually isn’t limited with just European bands (ARAFEL from Israel and ARKONA from Russia have already taken part in Paganfest and had quiet a success). In 2012 “Rock The Nation” announced a contest for the young bands and the winners supported the main line-up on 6 extended shows.

There’s also the American version of Paganfest having almost the same bands touring the North America.
