Power Quest, Angel Nation and Despicable Heroes to Brainstorm Festival
The programming of the 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival is steadily taking shape. Power Quest (UK), Angel Nation (UK) and Despicable Heroes (NL) have been added to the line-up of the event that will take place on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November 2018 in Gigant, Apeldoorn. The headliner of the festival will follow, as will many other bands.
With Power Quest, Brainstorm Festival brings DragonForce's 'brother' into its home. The English band was founded by Steve Williams, who was active in the early years at DragonForce. Power Quest also knows how to play infectious power-metal. Since their come-back in 2016 it's the band for the wind, as witnessed by the strong album 'Sixth Dimension'.
Angel Nation has no less than Elina Siirala standing behind the microphone. Nowadays we also know this Finnish singer from Leaves' Eyes, but Angel Nation is her first love. Like Power Quest, Angel Nation has released a new album through Innerwound Recordings, and the hit single 'Burn The Witch' is driving the gothic-metal band to ever-increasing heights.
What else can we say about Despicable Heroes? After winning the Metal Battle earlier this year, the band is a welcome guest on many festivals. The band had already performed at the Brainstorm Festival before and we are now adding a new chapter. Despicable Heroes operates on the border between metalcore and death metal, so it's going to be wild.
Earlier the Brainstorm Festival announced the arrival of Pyramaze (DK/USA), Signum Regis (SK), Leonov (NO) and Opus Irae (DE). The early bird action is over, but regular tickets (weekend combi and day tickets) are available from now on via:
The 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival will take place on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November in pop venue Gigant in Apeldoorn. In addition to the mainstage, the festival also makes use of the theatre for special performances, interviews and debate. There is also an exhibition, a beer tasting and a small metal market.
Headliner for Brainstorm 2018 to be announced soon
Although we are still holding the headliner secret for a while, we already have a number of fantastic acts to announce! Reason enough to attend the Brainstorm Festival in Gigant in Apeldoorn on the 9th and 10th of November. A week you long you can buy early bird tickets at an attractive price.
The progressive metalband Pyramaze (DK/USA) will come to the 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival. Last year the band performed at ProgPower Europe, and that convincing show was reason enough to invite the gentlemen to the Brainstorm Festival this time.
Also joining the party: Signum Regis (SK), who have already performed at the Brainstorm Festival in the past. In recent years the band has built up a huge fan base in the Netherlands and this will be their only show in 2018 on Dutch soil.
You can relax at the Brainstorm Festival with the show of Leonov (NO). The Norwegians perform in the atmospheric theatre of stage Gigant. Two years ago Leonov was the surprise of the Brainstorm Festival, which last year resulted in a show at the Female Metal Event FemME in Eindhoven. Now the band returns to Apeldoorn!
Those who prefer their music to be rock-hard should not miss the show of Opus Irae (DE). This symphonic black-metal band presents their debut album. Besides a show on the mainstage, the band also gives a subdued, classically oriented performance in the theatre.
Now that the first names are announced, it is also possible to buy an early bird ticket. For only 30 euros you can experience the whole festival on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November! The promotion will last until Tuesday 3 July, after which the prices will be adjusted. So go here quickly!

10th edition Brainstorm Festival
A long time ago we had a dream: a rock/metal festival with a mix of styles, other programming in a theater and an exposition. An event where music lovers can feel at home. A place where there is room for every human being, regardless of his/her background.
This weekend we had the privilege to celebrate the 10th edition with you! What a great party! Thank you for your support! We hope to see you all back at the 11th edition next year, because our dream is not finished yet. See you then!
