The first and only event of its kind in New Zealand. Showcasing some of the best and most unique heavy metal and rock acts in the country. This is the only Metal/Rock festival on an outdoor stage during the day and night in New Zealand in Summer!

HSF is now in its 5th year running and we are excited to announce that this will be the first time that camping will be available exclusively to festival goers, which means Hell Smash Fest has the entire campground to ourselves! The campsite is a mere 10-min beach walk from the venue and a chance for punters to mingle with bands, crew and fellow muso’s as all performers and crew are staying at the same campground!

Pre-sale tickets for either the fest only or fest and campsite inclusive are available below.

Disclaimer: This is like any campground and individuals are responsible for bringing their own tents, bedding etc. All campers are expected to maintain respect of the campground and other festival goers. Security will be onsite at all times, however, leave valuables at your own risk. Cooking and ablution facilities are available, however, Gisborne City is a small and central place, all food, drink, groceries etc is a mere 10 min walk or 3 min drive from the venue or campground.

So without further ado, here is this year’s insane line-up:
- Carnal - Slamming Brutal Death Metal (Auk)
- MetalTower - Blackened Progressive Death Metal (Various)
- Stormforge - Triumphant Power Metal (Auk)
- Intergracia - Epic Progressive Metal (Wgt)
- Forsaken Age - Traditional Heavy Metal (Auk)
- Psychoclasm - Melodic Death Metal (Tga)
- Harbinger - Thrash Metal (Gis)
- Uni-Fi - Progressive Rock (Gis)
- Catalyst - Thrash Metal (Gis)
- No Fix - NoFX Covers Band (various locations)
