Hard Rock Hell

Rolls out Rock’s Red Carpet for the First HRH Awards!

Having loudly and proudly recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, HRH still refuses to rest on its laurels and continues to expand and evolve. One major leap forward is the introduction of the HRH Awards, the first of which will be held at the main arena, camp HRH, Pwllheli, Wednesday 8th November 2017.

The HRH Awards follow the classic HRH model in that the awards and event are community-led and custom-built by the fans, reflecting the tastes and appreciation of the HRH Loyal, the Dark Circle and community. HRH as a whole, and all its branches, will be honouring the artists, the industry figures and people who matter in this business.

HRH Mag and Hard Rock Hell Radio will also be actively involved. The event is sponsored by Marshall, Eden, Natal, JHS, Vintage, HRH Mag, and Hard Rock Hell Radio.

“Awards are a big part of the industry,” says HRH’s CEO Jonni Davis, “So we felt it was time that the HRH community made its own voice heard, showing appreciation for the music they love and the people who make it. It’s going to be a Hard Rock Hell of an evening!”

Award categories will be voted by fans, along with a couple of industry-voted awards. Categories include HRH Legend, HRH Axeman, HRH Rising Stars etc. More categories will be added and voted on.

The event itself will be a lavish, red carpet affair, presented with the flair and attention to detail that Europe’s leading residential festival provider applies to all events. Here, think of sit-down tables, presentation rich in glitz and pizazz, a roomful of fans, industry, artists, agents, and media, all dressed to impress. There will also be a select few live performances at the event.

The Awards will be a ground-breaking innovation for HRH. Tickets are very, very limited in numbers: only 500 will be able to attend, so please book early. Red Carpet Passes can be booked on www.hardrockhell.com or by ringing Sam on 0207 193 1307. Priced at 40 GBP, this includes 1 night’s accommodation.

HRH Metal

HRH Draw Together Lodestones of Talent.

It’s loud, proud, with a passionate crowd, and made of pure, solid metal. Yes, it’s HRH Metal, promising to be the best yet, to be held up at O2 Academy, Birmingham between 17th & 18th February 2018.

This legendary event, from Europe’s leading residential festival provider, brings together more metal than the Mines of Moria and forges in Asgard combined, and boasts a truly talent-packed line-up.

“Metal has always been part of our lives here at HRH,” says HRH boss Jonni Davis, enthusiastically, “and we listen to our community to make sure we choose the acts the fans want to hear. This year’s HRH Metal line-up is proof of that.”

Alestorm need no introduction as the Seven Seas’ leading purveyors of Pirate Metal. They’ll be bringing their vibrant piratical sound to HRH Metal: ideal for reeling, carousing, chanting and raiding any galleons that happen to be passing.

German heavy metal Grave Digger are famed for their up-tempo, ballsy tunes with heavy power riffs. “It’s some of the purest metal you’re apt to find these days, and that’s a good thing,” said Angry Metal Guy, and we concur.

Other great bands announced include: Evil Scarecrow, Memoriam, Elvenking, Power Quest, Haerken, Fury, Attica Rage, Desert Storm, Ballsdeep, Monument, Kaine, Cypher 16, Collibus, Fire Red Empress, Gravil, Warcrab, Footprints in the Custard, Dakesis, Lifer, Torous, Sister Shotgun, Skarthia, Elimination, Nightmare World, Trivax, Ironrat, The Mighty Wraith, Vice, Incinery, Metaprism, The Face of Ruin, Sodomized Cadaver, XIII, Masters Call, Wrath of the Gods, Ashen Crown, and Devils Playground.

That’s a whole lot of metal, and heavy enough to generate its own gravity!

Great acts, chosen by the fans, with quality accommodation – The HRH way.

So sign up for HRH Metal, and remember, HRH events sell out very quickly, so book soon to avoid disappointment, either online at www.hrhmetal.com or ring Bex on 0207 193 9564.

HRH Prog VI

HRH PROG VI ADDS AN AMAZING 15 FURTHER BANDS TO ITS LINE-UP! This year, HRH Prog will be serving up a double dose of Prog Rock goodness.

“We’ve just wrapped up an incredibly successful HRH PROG V,” explains CEO Jonni Davis “Now everyone is waiting to see who will be joining Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy this November for the second instalment of HRH Prog. Well the wait is over! Originally, we were going to add a further 3 or 4 bands, but instead we’ve decided to go large and add another 15, just to get you well and truly in the mood! All these acts have been voted in by the HRH Prog community (the HRH way), so we’re now delighted to confirm the following for HRH Prog VI, with a few more to come shortly on top.”

Hard Rock Hell - Prog

As previously announced, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy will be playing a special tribute: ‘In Memory of Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, and John Wetton‘, honouring these legendary artists with a set of ELP material, and a couple of King Crimson tracks. Not to be missed.

Uriah Heep need no introduction to prog fans, having been leading players in prog rock since 1969 and still earning much respect and a devoted following.

Caravan have also been active since the late Sixties, and are known for blending psychedelic rock, jazz, and classical into their prog rock sound, along with their quirky, very English, lyrics.

Best known for their international hit ‘Hocus Pocus’, veteran rockers Focus bring Dutch prog to the HRH stage, whilst Von Hertzen Brothers bring modern Finnish prog to the party.

The Prog VI line-up will also be enriched by Magenta, Heather Findlay, Touchstone, Hawklords, Edgar Broughton, Krankschaft, The Fierce and The Dead, Third Quadrant, Tirith, Kepler Ten, and L’Anima, with another few acts yet to be added to this outstanding roll call of genre talent, as chosen by the HRH community.

HRH Prog VI will be staged back at Camp HRH, Pwllheli, Gwynedd, in North Wales, between 16th-19th November 2017.

Tickets are on sale now and can be booked by ringing Lisa on 0207 097 1521. Book early to avoid disappointment.
