We’re bringing our own brand of heavy metal to one of Europe’s biggest open air music festivals this year, as the Iron Horde invades Hellfest this weekend.
From Thursday, June 18 to Sunday, June 21, attendees can stop by the Hellfire Tavern—our booth decked out in Iron Horde style—to take the weight off their feet. Visitors to the booth will be able to complete a quest or two in World of Warcraft and sling some Hearthstone cards in our gaming area. Two artists from ARTtitude will be creating a mural at the booth on Friday, community personalities will be hanging out at the tavern with us, and we’ll be treated to WoW-inspired live music performances by YouTubers Stephane Lamour and Charlie Parra del Riego.
If you’re not traveling to Hellfest by Gryphon or Wind Rider, you can still arrive in style. Two special trains featuring a customized World of Warcraft design have already embarked on journeys between Nantes and Clisson in the west of France, where they’ll serve passengers all the way through Hellfest.
Blizzard Senior Art Director and Elite Tauren Chieftain front man Sam Didier, alongside World of Warcraft Lead Game Designer Luis Barriga, will be chatting to band members and providing coverage from Hellfest. So keep an eye out for daily updates!
Whether you’re attending the festival or not, we’re looking forward to sharing our passion for metal with you!
