2015 Schedule

August 05-08, 2015 - Old Army Fortress Josefov, Czech Republic

One of the most prestigious metal parades in Europe is about to celebrate it's 20th anniversary! This edition of Brutal Assault Festival will be held between 5th and 8th of August 2015 in the Old Army Fortress Josefov in the Czech Republic. The combination of extreme music genres as presented by selected worldwide acts and the historical area of the Old Army Fortress is what makes this festival unique. It's an integral part of the festival’s image and provides festival-goers with unusual experience. Marathon of extreme music will offer the best from various metal genres, in total more than 100 bands from around the world. This all during 4 days and on 3 stages. This year’s line up does not have any formal headliner. Instead, the festival management chose to have as many interesting “mid-size” bands as possible. This is allowing more fans to see more of their favorite acts. This form of line-up also perfectly fits the great anniversary the Brutal Assault fest is celebrating! The appreciative reaction of the fans has so far been even better than expected and the 20th Brutal Assault is ready to be the most successful volume so far!
