Ieper Hardcore Fest | 3, 4 & 5 JULY 2020


Here’s the moment all of us Ieperfest supporters have been waiting for: the first list of confirmed bands for the 28th summer edition. This one will happen on 3-4-5 July 2020.

As always we try to book a wide variety of bands, old and new, hard and soft, hype and unknown. You name it, you get it:

  • ADDITIONAL TIME German promising hardcore band, on the road with SUBZERO in summer 2020
  • ALL OUT WAR Around for 3 decades, these Americans have set the standards for mean metalcore as we know it
  • DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR Happy to have these guys back, solid US singalong hardcore
  • HER FAULT Blackened H8000 hardcore, ex-a bunch of local bands
  • JINJER Female-fronted vegan metal from Ukraine. Believe the hype!
  • LOUD LOVE Hardcore rock ‘n roll post-punk featuring ex-members of The SETUP, CIRCLE, CAST-DOWN, etc.
  • MARTYRDÖD Amazing Swedish metalcrust back for a second Ieperfest take-over, can’t wait!
  • RENOUNCED Leading UK metalcore act, incredible live performance
  • SUBZERO So happy to welcome these US hardcore veterans for their very first Ieperfest performance!
  • WISDOM IN CHAINS Our Friday headliners, back after having to cancel last year’s edition
  • WOLVENNEST Michel Kirby (LENGTH OF TIME, ARKANGEL, etc) & co on a dark, blackened, psychedelic, electronic trip

We have a few more confirmed already, but agreed with bands/bookers to announce them later on. #spannend!

This year’s concept proved to work out really well: slightly smaller and cosier, fewer bands, etc. The festival setup also seemed to be the best one we’ve ever had. We stick to all of that for 2020!

Early bird tickets are available as of now as well. There’s a limited amount available, so if you want, here’s your chance!
