Founded by two young man, Iván Méndez and Iván Pérez, both members of the ONP Crew, the Resurrection FEst had its the first edition in 2006. After that, year after year and under the direction of Iván Méndez from the beginning, the festival has grown to establish itself as the largest fest of hardcore/punk and metal music in the peninsula. In addition, it has always managed to have one of the best quality-price ratio among all the European festivals.
It broke its own record with more than 80542 attendants during the edition of 2016. At Resurrection Fest we have had bands of the likes of Iron Maiden, Korn, Motorhead, The Offspring, In Flames, Black Label Society, Megadeth, Slayer, Bring Me The Horizon, NOFX, Lamb Of God, Refused, Testament, Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium, Down, Sick of it All, Bad Religion, Bullet for My Valentine, Heaven Shall Burn, Pennywise, Hatebreed, At the Gates, Dead Kennedys, Exodus, or Black Flag, among many others up to 400 bands.
Our expectations for 2017 are higher than ever and our lineup will feature some of the most important and popular artists of extreme music, such as Rammstein, Rancid, Mastodon, Anthrax, Sabaton, Dropkick Murphys, Airbourne, Suicidal Tendencies, Enter Shikari, Arch Enemy and many others.
Resurrection Fest has always been and will be a festival created by and for music fans. The history of this young festival has only just begun. We hope to keep on writing it with all hardcore/punk and metal fans for many years in this great adventure called RESURRECTION FEST.
On 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th July 2017 something very special will happen again in Viveiro!!
