The 21st edition of BRUTAL ASSAULT attracts over 100 bands! Brutal Assault Music Festival - one of the most prestigious events in the world of metal - enters its next decade of its existence. This year's 21st edition, which traditionally takes place in a military fortress Jofesov in Jaromer, once again attracts about 100 bands from around the world which represent the best of different metal subgenres in 4 days on 3 stages.

This year's edition offers several well know acts like Polish black metal icon BEHEMOTH, legendary American industrial MINISTRY or British doom metal cult ELECTRIC WIZARD or Japanese post rock sensation MONO. Brutal Assault 2016 Festival will be held between 10th and 13th of August 2016 in the Old Army Fortress Josefov in the Czech Republic (approx. 130 km from Prague). The combination of eclectic line-up 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. Festival services include meet and greet point, non-stop bars, art gallery and many more attractions!

Both of the main stages are on the main festival square and the festival services are placed in the surrounding space. The festival-goers will discover dozens of refreshment kiosks with selection of worldwide cuisine. The fest is ready for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans and will also offer four big “beer tents” offering thousands of sitting places and five types of draught beer from the world famous Czech Budweiser Budvar brewery!

The fest also has its own “chill out” zone on the place called “Greenfield” just four minutes of walk from the main stages! Greenfield is a place for your pleasure and relaxation when you want to escape from the loudness terror. It is a place for recharging your energy. Among other attractions you can find enormous “Metal Market” in there. The market is home to more than 60 shops and sits just next to the festival “Horror Cinema Grindhouse” with it's all day projection of cheesy horror flicks and other forms of bizarre cinematography. Visit also festival “Natural grandstand”, a place for those who want to see the festival rush from above. Located directly opposite the main stages, the hillside "natural grandstand" is a place where you can stay standing or sitting and enjoy the bands from above. This year again with separate sound coverage!

The camping site is located approx. 300m from the festival ground on a grass field. The general camping is free for all, but the camping site also includes “VIP Camp” which offers extra services like camping in the fenced area, toilets, washbasin and depository for use of the VIP camp inhabitants exclusively, a free 3-day pass for the natural stand and shower situated in the main camping site.
