Dear Friends,

 

 good and bad news

 The good news are that the set up of the festival is doing well and it's gonna be amazing ! Also we are happy to announce that French metallers arrived already in Lausanne. They will prepare their summer tour at the DOCKS in the next days and we are all looking forward their performance on Friday at INFERNO !

The bad news is that the City of Lausanne has just limited the sound limit at the Base Bar to a level that is not adapted to Live rock music. It has been announced to us only yesterday evening and, despite of all our efforts to solve it, we must announce that we won't do concerts at the Base Bar this year.

Sólstafir et Black Tusk will play at the DOCKS now and the Docks will open earlier at 5 pm on both evenings. We are obliged to cancel the other shows (Cortez, Bölzer, When Icarus Falls, Darkrise, Kehlvin, Mercyless) and our team will try to offer to these Swiss artists another occasion to play. The Base Bar stage was a stage we had financed to support Swiss scene, it is our philosophy to support our bands and make them discover by maximum of people, this decision from the City makes us very sad for them.

For sure it doesn't change that we will have a fantastic metal party and a great festival with a great international line-up, special performances at the theater and the HR Giger exhibition ! We are so enthusiastic to welcome you at the end of the week !
