Brutal Assault festival is an anchorage of metal music and associated art with 130 artists, 5 stages, several art galleries and extensive chill-out zone. If you have not been there yet, this festival is just another level of experience in dark art with cherry picked blend of refreshing underground bands and stellar headliners spread across diverse festival area located within 18th century military fortress. Among traditional festival features the festival area also offers luxury sanitary facilities, showers, lockers, permanent horror cinema, underground mazes, huge metal market, art galleries, a lot of sitting spaces within the fortress walls providing shelter from the weather and tons of other attractions.
