Here’s the moment all of us Ieperfest supporters have been waiting for: the first list of confirmed bands for the 28th summer edition. This one will happen on 3-4-5 July 2020. As always, the crew tries to book a wide variety of bands, old and new, hard and soft, hype and unknown. You name it, you get it. Early bird tickets are available as of now as well. There’s a limited amount available, so if you want, here’s your chance! The first batch of acts consists of:
- ADDITIONAL TIME German promising hardcore band, on the road with SUBZERO in summer 2020
- ALL OUT WAR Around for 3 decades, these Americans have set the standards for mean metalcore as we know it
- DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR Happy to have these guys back, solid US singalong hardcore
- HER FAULT Blackened H8000 hardcore, ex-a bunch of local bands
- JINJER Female-fronted vegan metal from Ukraine. Believe the hype!
- LOUD LOVE Hardcore rock ‘n roll post-punk featuring ex-members of The SETUP, CIRCLE, CAST-DOWN, etc.
- MARTYRDÖD Amazing Swedish metalcrust back for a second Ieperfest take-over, can’t wait!
- RENOUNCED Leading UK metalcore act, incredible live performance
- SUBZERO So happy to welcome these US hardcore veterans for their very first Ieperfest performance!

- WOLVENNEST Michel Kirby (LENGTH OF TIME, ARKANGEL, etc) & co on a dark, blackened, psychedelic, electronic trip
The Ieperfest crew commented:
This year’s concept proved to work out really well: slightly smaller and cosier, fewer bands, etc. The festival setup also seemed to be the best one we’ve ever had. We stick to all of that for 2020!
