KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST is a new Danish Death Metal festival that takes place from September 16 – 18, 2010 at the Overdrevet / Dödsmaskinen in Copenhagen’s Northwest quarter. The festival will present 21 Scandinavian and International acts, Metal DJs, indoor and outdoor bars, together with events, food stalls, a merchandise area, horror movie screenings, scrap metal art installations and outdoor facilities. The festival’s primary focus is on the Scandinavian underground Death Metal scene, but acts from other parts of Europe and the rest of the world won’t be ignored either. The festival is based on D.I.Y. ethics, meaning that it is 100% non-commercial. All the work in the process of organising and during the actual fest is on a volunteer basis, so neither the organisers, nor the bands playing the fest, are making a profit. That is also why there’s no headliners; all the bands will get the same treatment. All money raised will go to covering festival costs such as gear, travel, food and accommodation for the bands. If there will be a profit it will go into creating a new festival next year. The festival will cost 300 dkr (40 Euros) for all three days. As part of the entry price, the first 500 paying guests will receive a KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST 2010 compilation tape with a song from all the bands playing the fest. The pre-sale of 3-day tickets was already started at the festival’s official website www.killtowndeathfest.dk. During the fest it will also be posible to buy one-day tickets.
