Every year in June, there’s a small earthquake in a city called Wervik, one of the oldest towns in Belgium. It’s time for the annual SkullFest, the ultimate summer bash in the West Flanders region, which main goal is to bring the best bands from the past and new bands for the future to the region to play a music-loving area of the country. During the past years the event grew from a small party to a 2-day metal festival with bands and visitors from Belgium, Netherlands, France, England, Germany, Italy, Sweden, ... Inspired by a modern festival standard, SkullFest offers you now two days of metal mania, a journey from the old-skool days to the exceptional music of today and tomorrow with local bands and international legends performing spectacular live shows.
