Following on from its debaucherous 25th anniversary last year, With Full Force festival has received a major revamp, arising this year with new ownership, a new name, and new organisers. This year we see FULL FORCE festival arising anew. But don’t worry, many aspects of the festival are still the same: the absolutely stunning venue, the amazing star-studded line-up, and the fantastic fans.

For many years, the home of the festival was the scorching tarmac of a small airfield in Germany. But in the last few years, the festival has been held at its new home: Ferropolis. And it is here that the festival will once more be happening. This very scenic spot is absolutely perfectly tailored to hosting such a bustling Metal festival. What could be more suitable than a location called Ferropolis, which roughly translates to “city of iron”? Whilst Ferropolis is a museum for much of the year, for one magical week in the summer it transforms into the stunning setting for the FULL FORCE festival. Massive old industrial machinery, which can be up to 120 meters long and 30 meters high, paints a stunning backdrop, whilst an amphitheatre-like structure creates the perfect place for going crazy in the crowd or simply chilling on the stairs whilst watching some top calibre bands. And to top it all off, there is a stunning lake surrounding both the campsite and the festival area, with several sandy alcoves that can be used to reach the water and cool down from the scorching sun. But none of these can compare to the beach in the main festival area with many chill-out spots, a stall selling fruit punch, and let’s not forget the lake itself. What more could you wish for on a nice summer day while waiting for another band to come on stage?
 
 
Over-all, FULL FORCE will definitely be worth checking out. Sure, the festival grounds are pretty spread out, and it can take over half an hour to walk from the campsites to the festival area, but there will be shuttle buses that would ferry you between the two - for a small fee of course. But that aside, the location itself more than makes up for the long distances. It is pretty much perfect for a festival of that size and offers a tonne of activities aside from watching the bands. The dedication of the organisers to pack as much diversity into the festival as possible - be it food, bands, activities, you name it - also leads to a really pleasurable festival experience. There’s actually more to do than either stay in your campsite and drink or watch the bands, which unfortunately can’t be said for every festival.
 
 
As for the line-up, where do you even get started? This year sees PARKWAY DRIVE return as headliner of the festival, after their blistering performance at With Full Force festival last year. FULL FORCE festival has gone all out this year to ensure that there’s something there for everyone, from Nu-Metal/Rap Rock giants LIMP BIZKIT all the way to the Celtic Rock band FLOGGING MOLLY, and everything in between. Black Metal fans have bands like BEHEMOTH, ALCEST and BATUSHKA to choose from. One definite personal highlight will be masters of Horror Metal, CARACH ANGREN. Also not to be missed are Experimental/Progressive ANIMALS AS LEADERS, who put on a mind-blowing show. But if you’re more into Death Metal or Deathcore, look no further than bands such as CANNIBAL CORPSE and WHITECHAPEL. And for those who’d like something a bit more mellow, bands like AT THE GATES, HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY, and MANTAR have got you covered. If you’re just looking for a bit of fun in the sun, then bands like KNORKATOR or MAMBO KURT will give you your daily dose of comedy. ARCH ENEMY is also guaranteed to put on a phenomenal show. And whilst we’re on the subject of bands not to be missed, LAMB OF GOD should definitely be high up on the list of priorities. Afterall, it’s not that often that they play in Europe.
 
 
So, FULL FORCE are all set with one of the best festival location and a killer line-up. And with chartered buses running to the festival from a whole host of cities throughout Germany, getting to the festival has also been made as easy as possible.  Be sure to check the festival homepage over the next few weeks for more info on the shuttle schedules. The festival is also accessible through other forms of public transport, as well as obviously also being reachable by car. So no excuses! Metal Temple looks forward to seeing you there!
