A multi-day festival hosts renowned and underground bands and performers of metal music and its subgenres, and takes place in lovely surroundings of Bohinj valley, next to mystic Bohinj Lake, just under the arm of Slovenia's highest mountain Triglav, in a small Alpine village Bohinjska Bistrica. The first edition of the festival welcomed metal-heads from all over the world in March 2017, the second was organized at the end of January 2018, and the third one in late November 2018. As the festival combines pleasure in metal music with fun in winter sports and relax, its motto is enjoying the real winter holidays together with your favourite music.
