Discussion in 'Katatonia' started by MadTinus, Mar 25, 2008.
Oh no... I'm sorry to hear man. Now you háve to go to that great festival
It is a tragedy indeed..
I'm afraid I'll have to go as well...
Being French, I've been waiting for Katatonia to come to France for such a long time...! Can't miss that... Especially when I see the awesome prog!!
this is the first and last time i am gonna say this but i wish i was a french!
Slayer, Venom, Candlemass, and Rotting Christ just added...jesus
I wish it was in July. Would've gone to this one as well as Party San if that was the case
and Krisiun, Danko Jones, Disfear, Shai Hulud, Bleeding Through, Throwdown, Black Tide and Punish Yourself...
Not that I care for any of those, but still..
Martijn, did you try out Benighted just now or have you heard 'em before? Some pretty insane tunes for sure haha
Ok... so now my entire cd collection is there.
and i cant go.
I listened to their last album once before and now I listened to it again, pretty sick brutal stuff indeed, they play close to where I live next week.
oh man.. I gotta see that band sometime. what I really like is that they aren't the typical grind/brutal death band. they can throw in any element pretty much and still succeed in sounding coherent. how that works out I dont know, but it does hah
Saving the thread from impending death. I've gotten info about what they plan to do (or not do) for journalists but thats not gonna help us collectively. Still waiting on other info to be posted...
Saw them live yesterday, it was crazy! Total insanity on and in front of the stage.
OK they launched a big new beautiful website, but here are the juicy bits for the lazy:
By car : on the motorway or on local roads, we strongly advise you to log onto www.mappy.fr. It is also wise to arrive on Thusrday 19 June to avoid traffic jams. Once in Clisson, look out for the signs to the festival carparks.
By train : the SNCF will advise you on your journey. Once in Nantes, trains for Clisson are frequent. GOOD NEWS minibuses will take those interested from the station in Clisson to the festival entrance or the camping (or any othee destination in Clisson) for only 2 euros per journey from thursday afternoon the 19th of june to monday afternoon the 23rd of june...
By plane : www.nantes.aeroport.fr is the biggest in the region catering for flights from France and abroad (London Barcelona etc.). Ryanair offers cheap flights from London and Dublin www.ryanair.com A local taxi firm from Clisson will take you from the airport in Nantes to Clisson for 10 euros per person with a minimum of 5 people by journey. The same service will be laid on on the last day and the day after the festival. For further information and booking please mail to: email@example.com or call 0033 240 039 205
The campsite doors open Thursday 19 June at 2pm upon presentation of your ticket. You will then be given your bracelet for the festival so all you'll have to do is set up your tent!
This campsite is only for those holding a 1 or 3 day pass.
When you arrive volunteers will give you a "camping bag" with goodies but its main use is as a bin bag. We rely on you to keep the site clean.

I will definitely plan on arriving Thursday, the campsite opens pretty late i.m.o. I was hoping a bit earlier, maybe Wednesday already or something. Now you will have all traffic and arriving visitors clustered in some 24 hours.
Well, we'll see..
I am not suprised...the last camping festival I went to (Coachella, which is in the mohave Desert) was just like that, but it worked out. They had the advantage of having the campsite sectioned off into squares and imposed a limit on how much space you could take up, which made it easier to form little groups in a circle and have a wide aisle to walk.
If they open it Wednesday evening it would be good to know, so we can converge accordingly!
I'm in a tricky situation :s
5th of june I'm doing an exam for my driver's licence. If I pass, I'm buying 2 tickets to Hellfest and I'm going by car. The thing is, chances are it'll be sold out by then... And also, I'm obviously not certain that I WILL pass the exam.
Maybe I'm better off buying the tickets now and sell them if I can't go.
you have months to practice. driving is easy!
do you have a friend you can bring as a backup driver in any case?
