We are very sorry to let you know that R.A.M. can’t make it to the festival this year. Singer Oscar is having a very nasty throat infection and unable to perform. RAM has never cancelled a gig before and hopes to return to Holland soon. We wish Oscar a speedy recovery and are working on a replacing band.
As has become a fine tradition at the Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival, we have arranged a Meet and Greet this year. No other then the Rods will be available for a chat, picture or an autograph at the Metal Market in the P60 hallway. Bring those records, cd’s or old tour shirts and have them upgraded by the legends themselves. Be at the P60 in time as The Rods will be signing your stuff from 13:00 to 14:00.

We were shocked to hear that Dealer bassplayer Pete Gentil died in a motorcycle crash. Our thoughts go out to the family, friends and bandmembers that Pete leaves behind. After a long talk with the band, there is no other option, but to cancel the gig with Dealer. That is why we asked Ruler to move from the pre-party at the Cave to the big stage. Dutch upcomming rockstars of Venator will join the pre-party.
