Details Confirmed For Metal Aid 2021

After the cancelling of the 2021 edition of Copenhell, which would have been happening on these same days, a much smaller festival will be taking place next week in Copenhagen.

Metal Aid is the name of this new festival, and it promises to provide two days of "emergency help" to metal fans and bands, both craving to hear and be heard.

Metal Aid will feature eight Danish bands ranging from classic thrash, heavy, black, folk, symphonic, and melodic death metal. The dates are June 16-17 and the venue is Amager Bio.
