"The demand for the tour is growing and people are really excited. We chose to bring the best and some new blood as well for the next run. We hope (like this year) that all the pagan followers will come back in big numbers and raise their drinks in the air and celebrate a majestic evening not to be forgotten anytime soon!"

This looks awesome. Eluveitie is one of my favorite bands and Korpiklaani and Moonsorrow are awesome too. I will check out the other bands. I really hope they come to where I am.

I've heard many a good thing about Paganfest. If it comes anywhere near NC might have to look into it.

Korpiklaani is great! Ensiferum kicked a$$ last year. Will definitely check this one out again when it comes through Denver!
