Swiss folk metal outfit Eluveitie has been confirmed as the headliner for the 2012 edition of the travelling Paganfest event. Joining them on the trek will be Primordial, Negura Bunget, Heidevolk and Solstafir. Speaking on the tour, Eluveitie singer Chrigel Glanzmann stated: "Of course we look forward to the Paganfest Tour 2012! One hand, we can not wait to show our fans the songs from our new album 'Helvetios' live (and we will do this extensively on Paganfest). On the other hand, we look forward to tour with such cool bands and to be on the road with good friends, like the Irish guys from Primordial. We are convinced of the line-up of the upcoming Paganfest. It is an honor for us to headline this package of great bands. We are confident that each evening on the Paganfest tour will be a musical experience that you will never forget! See you there!"
