November 2014

Some time has now passed since the last ever Hell's Pleasure Festival. Due to various reasons such as being unable to achieve our goals and visions under the given circumstances we decided to end the festival. HOWEVER! As we still want to stage an event with the same high quality line-ups, we have decided to continue with a new and improved version of the festival which will be known as CHAOS DESCENDS!

The first edition of this will take place in the new location on 17 & 18 July 2015.


July 2014

We would like to send a massive thank you to all the fantastic, professional and generous artists who performed, the crew for their dedication and especially to all the fans for attending our festival in Pößneck last weekend and throughout the years making Hell's Pleasure the great event it became. It was a great honour for us to see so many of our favourite bands at the festival over the past few years.


We are very exited to announce, that our friends of SADISTIC INTENT will be back to Hell's Pleasure with an exclusive EU show to replace DEATH SS and that CARONTE (IT) have been added to the line up.

The statement from the band: "With a very heavy heart and the sincerest of apologies The Gates of Slumber will have to cancel their European tour that is coming up do to a member having to go into Rehab to deal with several addiction issues. It's an issue that has to be addressed and can not be put off any further. […]"
