After a successful edition of Epic Metal Fest 2015 at ‘Het Klokgebouw Eindhoven’, the Dutch metal band Epica organizes a new Epic Metal Fest this year. This time the festival will be held at Poppodium 013, Tilburg on Saturday, October 1st. The Dutch bands that are already confirmed are the symphonic metal band Epica (only show in NL in 2016), progmetal band Textures and symphonic death metal band Mayan. Katatonia (SE) and Myrath (TUN) are making the bill complete for now. In total 12 bands will play at Epic Metal fest 2016, so we can expect another 7 announcements!
