VIP camp sold out! published 2 years, 6 months ago
Several weeks after we went out of capacity at our hotels, our VIP camp is now sold out as well! There is a couple of unsolved orders but worry not, if you have payed you are gonna have Your tickets. Please také note – no party tents will be allowed in the VIP camp! This year we are forced to adopt strict policy on this issue because of massive demand and limited capacity of the VIP camp. So at this moment the only chance to get to the VIP camp is joining Your friends, who already have their tent space booked and have a spare room in the tent.
EDIT: regarding expanding capacity of the VIP camp - we'd love to, but unfortunately there's no available space we could rent. The land owners of the nearby meadows won't lease them. We are very sorry to dissapoint You.
With the hotels and VIP camp being sold out we would like to advise You not to hesistate on the tickets purchase as well. Also we would like to remind You that You can still create Your own festival poster and win a free festival pass by sharing it with our #mybrutalassault campaign!

Line-up changes and time table announced published 2 years, 6 months ago
Sadly we have to inform You that SIKTH have to withdraw from this year's line-up. The band explains:
„Firstly - we are so sorry that we have had to withdraw from Brutal Assault. We were so looking forward to it. We never pull out of shows. Unfortunately, our EP recording schedule has had to move back and thus we we will be in the studio recording around the time of the gig. We can't delay the recording any longer due to release date.
WE WOULD LOVE TO PLAY NEXT YEAR.
All the best with the show. Apologies again.“
As You can see, this was beyond our control and it's clear that there aren't any bands that could fully replace SIKTH in the line-up. However we can promise You that we'll do our best to have them next year. New York thrash hardcore crossover ALL OUT WAR and Czech progressive metal prodigies MODERN DAY BABYLON were confirmed instead. MDB played our fest last year but they have a new EP comming out this summer, so they will present a new material.
The second cancellation came from TROUBLE. The band explains:
„Trouble would like to regrettably notify the promoters … that we are unable to do the tour as planned. Unfortunately, one of our core members has a situation with his private life that has made it impossible for him to do this tour. Trouble has been a trustworthy act over 30 + years and this is the first time that we have ever had to cancel a tour.“
We're still working on a replacement.
Finally ANTAEUS ceased all their live activities and were replaced by one of the most blazing infernal death metal acts LVCIFYRE.
The latest confirmed bands besides the aforementioned are: ACID FORCE, ADOR DORATH, DIPHTERIA, DROM, ENDLESS, OBLITERATE, MALLEPHYR, MINORITY SOUND, MORTALLY INFECTED, MORTIFILIA, POSTCARD FROM ARKHAM, SUFFOCATE WITH YOUR FAME, THE TOWER, TORTHARRY.
The complete timetable including stage times is now available here.
