The paganfest tour line up will include: Finland’s
folk freaks KORPIKLAANI as the headliners, Switzerland’s ELUVEITIE, Ireland’s PRIMORDIAL, Finland’s MOONSORROW, Canada’s BLACKGUARD (formerly known as Profugus Mortis), and New Jersey’s crazy Pirate Metal drunks, SWASHBUCKLE as the openers.

KATAKLYSM frontman and ROCK THE NATION USA’s general manager Maurizio Iacono recently issued the following comment:

"As 2008’s Paganfest was a great discovery for many people and a HUGE success, we are proud to bring it back again for 2009!"

"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!"
