The 2010 edition of the Hole In The Sky festival is set to take place in Bergen, Norway from August 24th - 28th. The organizers have now issued the following update about Von performing at the festival:

"We promised you one surprise act, here is another: One of THE cult acts in the Black Metal Pantheon, the legend that is VON will perform in Bergen during Hole in the Sky 2010. Their two demos 'Satanic Blood' and 'Blood Angel' are among the most unique releases in Black Metal ever, songs like 'Lamb,' 'Devil Pig,' 'Veadtuck,' and 'Watain' have never been copied or bettered in all their minimalistic, hypnotic glory. Founding members Goat and Venien have decided to reform VON for a select number of shows, with Hole in the Sky being one the few festivals."

Comments the band: "Hole in the Sky Festival is a gathering of the Hordes of Norwegian Darkness and Ritual of Chaos, and that in itself is a significant precursor to our involvement and participation.

VON will perform as special guest on the Wednesday dubbed Invocation together with Rotting Christ, Dead Congregation, Repugnant, Grave Miasma and Urfaust."
