Q&A

How did the festival come about in the first place?
We start as people who like music and want to create something for th eband we love!

How has the festival evolved over the years, and how do you it evolving in the future?
After our 2 firts succes, we decide to become bigger and bigger. If this year, the festival work quite good, we will do another one, so we really hope that people will come!!

How are the final bands chosen
The President of the event, Ben choose all the band that he wants to see duing his festival. His collegue Yoann, help him a lot as well!

If you could have any bands in the world to headline (past or present), who would they be?

I think this year, we touch our dream cause we have Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys and Slayer are also the aim of the fury fest so we are quite happy!
