Latest Manegarm News
Below is our complete Manegarm news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
The 2010 edition of the Jotunheim festival was scheduled to feature bands such as Thyrfing, Manegarm, Vreid, and more. The Jotunheim organizers have now issued the following statement about canceling the festival:
"We must inform you that we have unfortunately been forced to cancel the first edition of Jotunheim Festival! Jotunheim Festival is canceled due to apparent pressure from Antifa who believed that the line-up included bands that advocated fascism or were affiliated with fascistic political movements. This was completely untrue, with not a single band having ever expressed such political sympathies (if any), only pride in their heritage (though of course, any such display immediately gets Antifa up in arms anyway). Nor was there any statement made on behalf of the festival that specified any particulars about who could and could not attend, certainly not on racial grounds.
"Because of the Antifa groups, Northwind Promotion declines to do concerts and festivals in Croatia, and in the future will be focused on the external market where there are no organizations that will charge based on nonexistent facts. For a refund of the tickets, please contact us by e-mail email@example.com."
