News

It is now this time of year, were we are announcing how much money we are donating to Metal Magic Festival!

We are very proud to announce, that we have transferred 12.000,- DKK to Metal Magic Festival!!!
This has only been possible with YOUR help. Because of you, who have chosen to become paying members of Friends of Metal Magic Festival. So a huge thanks goes out to all of you guys!
Also, we would like to give a great thank you to all the bands who have donated wicked stuff for all the prize draws over the year!

You are probably curious to learn, what the money will be spent on. It is very important for us, that the money is spent on something you, as guests, can fell very directly;

Last year, it was a great success with the blackout tent canvas on the tent for the small stage. It made for much better concert experiences and a far better atmosphere in the tent during daylight hours. We have therefore decided to help fund this kind of tent canvas once again this year. We are looking forward to experience the atmosphere in the tent to shows with Shamash, Phrenelith, Deiquisitor and all the other great bands playing on the tent stage!!!

Also the money have helped finance a leveling of the field. This means that it will be just a bit easier walking around drunk on the festival grounds this year, without the risk of braking any bones!

Last, but certainly not least, we have helped finance an upgrade of the toilets. This means there will be more toilets per guest and consequently, you will spend less time in boring toilet ques and more time listening to music and drinking beers!

We can’t wait for Thursday! See you at the bar and in front of the stages!!!

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

INTERVIEWS WITH THE MMF CREW - Part 11 - The ShuttlebusYou all probably know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Now meet… well… me! Besides being the woman behind the Friends of Metal Magic Festival group, I’m also the one in charge of everything to do with the shuttlebus from Copenhagen to the festival. So I guess I have to interview myself haha! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? My first year at MMF was the 3rdyear of the festival. It was a magical experience, and the festival has been the high point of my summer ever since! 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? To be honest, I have no idea! It’s been a process of just helping out with a few things in the beginning. I started by helping a bit with the shuttlebus, selling beers and such, and then DJ’ing a bit in the morning. And then suddenly I was a member of the crew group. I’m not quite how sure that happened. The festival is like an entity that just pulls you in slowly without you noticing haha… 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? See the above… the entity that is Metal Magic Festival just trapped me slowly... 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group My main responsibility is the shuttlebus from Copenhagen to the festival. This entails having to make sure the passenger list is up to date, making sure we have enough beer on the bus trip and of course making sure everyone has a good trip to the festival! But, as most of the crew members, I help out wherever I can when it is needed. It’s hard work to plan a festival and you can’t just say “that’s not my job”, if there is some kind of crises that needs to be dealt with. 5. What is the biggest challenges for you when planning the festival and during the festival? The biggest challenge is always getting the passenger list right. We typically have a few bands on the bus, and they might be great at playing Heavy Metal, but they are not always the best at giving the needed information haha... But this year there has been no problems of that sort! During the festival don’t have that many responsibilities. But it is quite a big challenge reading the names on the passenger list Sunday,when you have a 3 day festival hangover! 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Well of course thenew location has changed a lot. Not just the physical surroundings, but also the way we plan the festival. We have learned a lot throughout the years, and the structure of the crew group and how we work together is improving all the time. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? Just knowing that I have played a small part in making this fucking amazing festival happen is awesome! And then I really enjoy the first concert on the festival after a successful bus-trip with the first cold beer in my hand. That is pure magic! 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smother? The passengers on the bus are the best! They already make my job very enjoyable. They should just remember to take all of their stuff with them when we return to the airport on the Sunday, otherwise I will have even more luggage to carry. For our guests in general I cannot stress enough how important it is to buy all of your beers and drinks at the festival bars. The festival’s survival depends on it, literally! It’s quite hard to get funds from the municipality and to get private sponsors when you are a small underground festival. The profits from the bar is what makes next years festival. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? I can’t wait to see Tormentor again. They were fucking amazing earlier this year at The Abyss Festival in Sweden. And thenof course Angel Witch! 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? The beers are cold, the drinks are cheep and the music is amazing. But what really makes Metal Magic Festival is the atmosphere. It is truly magical and you MUST come and get a taste of it! ...

INTERVIEWS WITH THE MMF CREW - Part 10 - The administrationYou all probably know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Now please say hi to Klaus. He is the guy who knows all about how to finance Metal Magic Festival. In short, he is the guy who makes sure, it is actually possible to even plan a festival! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I missed the first MMF, but I have been attending as a regular visitor every year since Metal Magic Festival – part II. I remember Abysmal Grief and Resistance as being superior performances! And I miss Crucifix 😊 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? I have been a part of Metal Magic’s executive committee (“bestyrelsen”) and hence the crew since we broke away from Ungdommens Hus back in 2016. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Martin asked me to join back in 2016 after the last festival at Ungdommens Hus. He was putting together a team that could move the festival into the future. I guess he asked me because I had experience from the Metal Mekka organization in Odense and from Royal Metal Fest in Aarhus. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group As mentioned, I am a member of Metal Magic’s executive committee (“bestyrelsen”) where my formal role is cashier (“kasserer”). But my work covers a number of other areas like fundraising, accounting, IT-systems, contact with authorities, ordering of supplies, preparing payment systems for the festival and many other duties. 5. What arethe biggest challenges for you when planning the festival and during the festival? My biggest challenge is the number of hours per day! Organizing this festival is a huge task and in average, I spend at least one hour every day on MMF – all year! There is always more to do and things that could be improved – but I don’t have time for it all. The Royal Metal Fest takes a lot of time as well, and I have a regular day-job to attend to as well. Another challenge is, that we (the board and the entire crew group) are scattered all around the country. That makes it hard to meet in real life, so we have to rely on written communication on Facebook, email etc., which is not always ideal for exchanging ideas or arguments. During the festival I have close to zero hours for relaxing and enjoying the music – that’s a challenge as well! 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Ever since we started planning Metal Magic Festival – part Zero, we have been trying to optimize workflows, communication, suppliers, responsibilities and the entire organization. It is an ongoing process that probably never ends – but everything was a mess when we started, and a lot has improved since then. We have to evolve slowly instead of trying to change everything overnight. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? The best thing is to be a part of the team that makes this festival happen. Metal Magic Festival is a very unique event that isn’t easily compared to anything else. We have a lot of metal festivals in Denmark, but most of them have some similarities in one way or another, but none is like Metal Magic. And we are Denmark’s largest outdoor metal festival (no, Copenhell is a rock festival). The relief, the feedback from the visitors and the feeling of having done something “important” is a great feeling that motivates me to do it all again. I won’t lie: It is extremely exhausting doing a festival like this, but seeing the hordes of happy metalheads having a great time for 3-4 days is all worth it. I just wish I could be a part of the party again 😊 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? Invite your friends. Buy beers, drinks and food. And don’t be a jerk 😊 My greatest concern is the financial situation of the festival. Many people think that the festival yields a huge revenue every year, but that’s not true – we constantly struggle to keep our heads above water. So please buy your beverages in the bars and don’t smuggle your own stuff into the camping ground. We really need the revenue from the sales of tickets, beers, drinks and food. Otherwise we may have to increase the beer prices – and nobody wants that! 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? Ved Buens Ende and Tormentor, of course. And Goat. Truth is that I probably don’t have time for many bands, unfortunately. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? I don’t have to convince anyone 😊 If the awesome visitors, the awesome crew, the awesome bands and the awesome atmosphere isn’t enough, then there is no point in bringing people to Metal Magic Festival. But I guess the spirit of a real, outdoor metal festival with dedicated fans is the key here. One guy said to me: “The feeling of MMF is like Wacken back in the good old days”. ...

INTERVIEWS WITH THE MMF CREW - Part 9 - The Head of Board of DirectorsYou all probably know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Meet Ole. He is the Chairman of the Board of Directors, in other words he has the overview of the entire festival! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I’ve been to every Metal Magic Festival since day one. 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? I’ve been involved in Metal Magic one way or another since the beginning. The first year I was asked to DJ before, between and after bands, and if I remember correctlyI was also DJ’ing the year after. The 3rdyear I organized the shuttlebus from Copenhagen and since then I just got more and more involved in organizing the entire festival. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Well, the crew group has changed structure several times throughout the years, and I was also involved in some of the changes, but at the very beginning it was Martin “Impaler” Jørgensen (founder of MMF) who asked me if I wanted to help out as a DJ, and then I guess I was “trapped” haha. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group As mentioned before I was previously organizing the shuttle bus and through the years I have also been a bit involved in booking and general organizing. These days I am Chairman of the Board of Directors for the whole MMF organization, so my main responsibility is to try to keepan overview of everything.But I am also very much involved in the practical construction of the whole festival-site, and I also still help out regarding booking etc. I guess I am a bit all over the place haha. 5. What are the biggest challenges for your when planing the festival and during the festival? Biggest challenges regarding planning is without doubt the financial part. It is very expensive to organizea festival this size on a field without power, water etc., and every year we struggle to find the funds to make it happened. I talk to many of our regular visitors who think the festival has a strong economy and it is 100% sure that we have MMF every year – the reality is quite the opposite! Every year we debate if it is possible to do another festival. So to all our guests: please by tons of beer, food and merchandise – it is the only way we can keep on doing the best festival in Denmark  6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Biggest change was the movement from the old location at Ungdommens Hus to the current location. It is a complete different, and much harder, task to make a festival from scratch on a field, compared toa location with indoor facilities, power, water etc. But I feel that it was a good change, the festival is, in my view, better now than ever and feels more like a real festival. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? Best thing is when the festival is running smooth and to see all the Crew Group’s hard work come to life and please 100s of happy and drunk festival guests and bands. 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? In general I think we have awesome festival guests. The amount of trouble during MMF is minimal. As long as everyone take care of each other and behave nice – and make sure to buy their beer/drinks in the Festival Bar – I am happy. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? Without a doubt Ved Buens Ende… It’s been a dream since day one to have VBE at MMF, and a dream for me personally to see them live for more than 20 years. Best. Booking. Ever. But as always there is tons of bands I am looking very much forward to see. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? The amount of high quality and unique bands, that you never or rarely get the chance to see in Denmark within the entire spectrum of the Metal genre, the awesome atmosphere and the cheap beer should be more than enough reasons for everyone with the slightest interest in Heavy Metal to go to MMF. ...

INTERVIEW WITH THE MMF CREW - part 8 - The MerchYou all probably know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. As you know, the festival has a merch tent. In addition to selling all of the festival’s own merch, this is also where you can find all the band-merch. Meet Michelle, who is in charge of what goes on in the merch tent! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? 7 years. I highly regret missing the first couple of years! 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? About 3 years. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Liam (one of the backbones of MMF) was looking for someone to be in charge of the merchandise booth and I volunteered. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group? As mentioned above, I'm the merch boss. 5. What is the biggest challenges for your when planning the festival and during the festival? Finding volunteers and making the work schedule is always a bit stressing, especially the late shifts are not always easy to find volunteers for. A couple of days before the festival starts I also have to set up the tables in our merch tent, which can feel like a game of Tetris sometimes, since I also have to make room for other sellers (Phantasmo DVD e.g). When the festival begins things usually run smoothly, thanks to my awesome volunteers (seriously, they're the best)! We only have minor challenges which are easy to fix, for instance when facing problems with our credit card reader temporarily, making enough space on our tables for band merchandise and so on. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Moving from Ungdommens Hus to Dronningepladsen is of course a major change. There's also been a lot of ”cleaning up” in the Crew Group, so now we're left with the most hardworking and dedicated people. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? To see all of our hard work is paying off – happy festival people having a good time year after year! And that special moment during the last band Saturday night, when we all look at each other with that ”we fucking did it again” look in our eyes. Pure magic! 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? Well, buy our merch! And be nice to our volunteers and each other. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? Oh, man... Tormentor, Ved Buens Ende, Angel Witch, Source, Medieval Steel and Impetuous Ritual is on my ”must see” list. Crazy line-up this year! 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? Look at the line-up! There's no festival in Denmark like MMF, so if you want to experience a truly unique atmosphere and see one killer band after another play while drinking cheap beer, then don't hesitate – get yourself a ticket and join the madness! ...

INTERVIEW WITH THE MMF CREW Part 7 - BackstageYou all probably know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Now it’s time to meet Trine who is in charge of backstage. This means she is the one who makes sure, the bands has got all they want backstage to keep them happy and fit to take the stage to play you killer shows! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I have been there since the very beginning! 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? It’s a bit hard to remember, but I think it must be since 2013. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Well, I volunteered to pick up a few bands from the airport and before I knew it, I was in charge of driving – together with Gerrit. The last few years it has changed a bit and I’m now responsible for backstage while Gerrit takes care of driving. But the two areas are of course closely connected. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group I’m mainly responsible for backstage, but as I’m also a surgeon I also sometimes help if people are suddenly in need of some kind of medical attention. 5. What are the biggest challenges for your when planning the festival and during the festival? Having time for the planning, getting information in time to prepare everything that the bands need and making sure we have enough volunteers to take care of the bands. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Well, the festival moved! That’s been a huge, but also very good change I think. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? MMF is a special festival with many great bands and lots of very dedicated people. It’s wonderful being a part of making the festival come true and it’s great to be able to make the bands feel special no matter how unknown or famous they are. I really enjoy the “down to earth” atmosphere at MMF! 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? Stay out of the backstage area and buy more beers, haha! 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? Impetuous Ritual will be absolutely killer and Ved Buens Ende will be very special I’m sure. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? Well, we have been trying to kill you for quite some time now with very little success, which means that people going to MMF must be pretty damn cool – and who doesn’t want to be cool?? Exactly! I think I made my point… ...

Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Palle – the guy who feeds you – has got a right hand man. That is Beese. His does a little bit of it all regarding food, but if you were a volunteer at last years festival you have without a doubt meet him in the festival’s volunteer tent, as the volunteer tent is his realm! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I have only been to Metal Magic the last two years, both years as a volunteer. The first year I was helping to build up the festival grounds from Tuesday morning and then I was a fire watch throughout the festival. In 2018 I became a part of the crew group. I am a trained cook and baker and I am employed with the Danish Navy as a kitchen manager. So now I am in charge of the food for all of our volunteers during the festival. It’s served in the volunteer tent on the festival ground. 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? One year – see answer above. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? I became part of the crew group as it is possible for me to get of work for the whole week every summer, the week of Metal Magic. And also, I had the right skills needed to serve food to a large amount of people within a short amount of time. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group My main responsibilities is to build up the food stalls and the volunteer tent together with the others who runs the food stalls. And also to prepare all of the food we are going to serve at the festival in our food stall and in the volunteer tent. During the festival I am I charge of the volunteer tent. And then I always lend a hand to Palle, if he needs it. 5. What are the biggest challenges for you when planning the festival and during the festival? The biggest challenge for me is to be able to get time of work in that exact week where the festival runs. It’s also a bit challenge to find enough volunteers that feels like putting 2x6 hours work in, during the festival. During the festival the greatest challenge is to find the time to both cook and see all of the bands I would like to see. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? We are getting more and more organized on the new festival grounds year by year. That’s nice. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? The best thing about being part of the crew group is to see a successful festival rise from a small empty field in Fredericia and see more than 600 happy Metalheads having a good time, drinking a lot of beers, partying and meeting other like minded people. 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? It’s hard for me to see how our guests could make my job easier or run smother. I think our guests are the bests guest you could imagine. Their standards are quite reasonable both regarding comfort and the facilities on the festival grounds. I just have one advise: Please buy your beers in the festival bar, also the beers you want to drink in your own tent. Without the proceeds from the beer sale there would be no festival. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? This year I’m looking forward to Medieval Steel and Tormentor. And as always I’m looking forward to discovering new bands. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? I would just recommend everyone to visit Metal Magic Festival just once. Because when you have visited the festival once you will come back every year. There is no other garden party that tops this one, that is so affordable and with such a great line-up in Denmark! ...

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

INTERVIEWS WITH THE MMF CREW – Part 2 – The FoodYou probably all know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group, asking them all the same 10 quick questions. Meet Palle, the guy who makes sure you are all feed during the festival! 1. How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? 7 years 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group 6 years 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? I went to MMF with my kids and then I talked to my friend about the Pølsevogn (the first food truck at the festival red.) and told him, that me and my friends were willing to do the food for the guests and one year later the MMF food-crew was ready to serve. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group I plan and have the responsibilites for the food at the festival and I´m in the board of directors. 5. What is the biggest challenges for your when planning the festival and during the festival? The biggest challenges for me is to make my “home” life fit with the time I spend duing the year to plan the festival and not at least the time I use the last 2 months just before the festival. But my family is understanding and they know that the festival means a lot to me. During the festival my biggest challenges is to get enough sleep. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? The biggest changes is of course moving the festival from the Ungdommenshus and out on the field at Dronningepladsen. It required a lot more work than I had ever imagined. But also the food has had some big changes. Today the festival has a larges selection of food and the prices are fair and the quality is good. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? The best part about being a part of the crew is the “MMF spirit”, the unity and feeling that the work you put into the festival gets rewarded 10 times when the gates open and the “garden” party starts. 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? Sometimes when the beer goes in, the brain goes out. And some of the volunteers in the MMF food stand sometimes gets bullshit from drunk guests. So I would ask our guests to remember that the volunteers are at the party and part of it. But that being said, we have the best guests in the world. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? This year Spektr is something that I am looking forward to and also Nyredolk has my attention. But as all other years, I am mostly looking forward to getting some good surprises and a lot of good music. 10.How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? The best “Garden” party in the world with the best poeple, cheap beer and music that kicks ass.. ...

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

Interview with the MMF Crew - part 1 - The BarYou probably all know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group, asking them all the same 10 quick questions. We will start with what many of you might deem to be the most important area of the festival. The bar! Meet Xenia, who is in charge of your beers 1.How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I’ve been going since the beginning. 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? Also since the beginning. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Martin contacted me back in the days asking if I would like to help at the entrance. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group I started at the entrance selling tickets, but it quickly escalated and for about the last 8-9 years I’ve been volunteering in the bar. I have been in charge for the last 5-6 years along with 2-3 other dedicated volunteers. 5. What are the biggest challenges for your when planning the festival and during the festival? Planning the festival is always a roller coaster ride. Getting the work schedule filled out with all our amazing bar volunteers, making sure all is set up for it to run smoothly, making the experience for the guests as good as possible. Thursday, before we open, it’s always running around stressed, making sure we haven’t forgotten anything :D During the festival the greatest challenge is closing the bar at 2 o’clock. We would love to expand the opening hours, but we can’t get the permit from the authorities, so we must close. And of course, our beloved guests does not want the party to end therefore it can be a bit of a hassle to get them out of the bar tent so we can close. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Well, we are now at a new location at Dronningepladsen, so that is of course a big change. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? Just being a part of it. It’s become all of our little baby :D I remember the first year at the new location, we were all so afraid of how it would work out, and most of all how the guests would react. And standing there in the sunshine Thursday afternoon, seeing all the smiling guests and everything running smoothly. I felt that. Magic... I almost cried. Haha. :D :D 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smoother? For the bar, not much. I can’t really think of anything other than being more willing to leave the bar tent at 2 o’clock. We unfortunately can’t control the legislation and don’t have permission to keep the bar open after said time. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? I’m not attending MMF because of the music. I’m there because of the magic experience every year and because of all the fantastic people attending. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? Tell them about how magical it is. ‘Cause it truly is. 😊 ...

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

Interview with loyal festival guest, Kim Non-StopKim lives in Fredericia and has been a regular guest on the festival from the very first year. He has never been a part of the planning or been a volunteer as such. Even though he has been persuaded to help out with the printed program for the festival. But he is passionate about the festival, and he is always present when ever there is a Metal Magic related event in Fredericia. He is, in other words, a true Friend of Metal Magic Festival, why we thought it was ideal to have a talk with him about what the festival means to him. As the Danes that knows Kim will know, he’s really got a unique way with words. Therefore the Danes can scroll down for a (mildly edited) Danish version. It’s great that you are willing to do this interview with us Kim! The festival has been though quite a big change these past years. How do you like the new location of the festival? You’re welcome. In my opinion, the festival has been through a lot since 2008 and last year was the biggest change with the new location. I was a bit nervous about the thought of experiencing Metal Magic at a big open grass field without any buildings. But it was a really cool experience and everything worked nicely with all the big tents, the food stalls and beer servings. The place is really cool. I’m quite happy that we have been cut of a lot more from the buildings and citizens of the city. There is more peace and quiet to misbehave at the new location. You have been a guest at the festival every year. What is your earliest memory? My earliest memory must be my very first steps on the festival grounds. I was late the first day at the festival in 2008, but I just made it to hear Johnny Nightmare say “thank you and goodbye”. Haha... What is your best memory? Hmm. It’s hard to mention just one memory. There has been so many good memories with a lot of people and concerts. Some of the memories have been lost through the years. But a bit of a peculiar memory I have from Metal Magic 3 in 2010, was when I had snuck down to the indoor backstage toilet to take a leak. There was a man standing at the sink with a towel over his head, drying his hair. When I passed him I gave him a pat on the back and said, in Danish, something like “it’s important to remember to wipe yourself properly when you have been to the toilet”. The guy got very surprised and turned around and looked at me. At this moment I realizede it’s Kevin Heybourne of Angel Witch! I was quick to apologize, tying to save the awkward moment by saying the same thing again in English. Fortunately he is a very nice guy and replied “Yes of course”. When you attended the first MMF, did you imagined that the festival would develop like it has, and that it would become a recurring event, that is now taking place for the 11th year in a row? I think, I have always believed there would be Heavy Metal events in Fredericia. And that the events would be organized by the people behind Metal Magic. No doubt about that. If I believed in 9 festivals in a row on the old location? No, I don’t think so. Because I think there has been a bit of adversity throughout the years. I also didn’t think back then, that the festival would change location and become as independent as it is today. I’m sill not sure, if the festival will continue for many years still on the new location. But of course I hope so. I know it’s close to impossible to highlight one concert as the best one. But could you maybe try to highlight some of the concerts you thought was something special, something you could only experience on MMF? Yes, it’s close to impossible to highlight just one. And if it is something you could only experience on Metal Magic, I find hard to decide on. I could mention 10, but to keep it short, mentioning the 3 shows I think of first will have to make do. Abysmal Grief on Metal Magic 2 in 2009. That was really brilliant. I have seen the band twice since, and it seems it will never be the same again. I don’t know what is the problem with their live shows now, but fortunately every one of their albums is genius! They just had a very powerful energy that day. Great sound and a fantastic timing with the lights on stage. An unforgettable atmosphere. Mortuary Drape on Metal Magic 6 in 2013. Again a fantastic atmosphere at the indoor stage at the old location. To see the front man (Wildness Perversion) running around like an animal freaked out on rituals. That was way to cool! And the small hooded bass-guitar player with the really large green 5-string bass-guitar. It was like watching a sci-fi horror show unfold that just got wilder and wilder. And again, super nice sound and cool stage lighting. ABSU on Metal Magic Part Zero 2017. Yes, I was actually quite satisfied with that concert. It was short. And there was a bit of trouble with the sound. But ABSU is just a powerful experience. A man turned up next to me half way though the show and he asked me if I knew were the front man was. When I explained to him that the front man just sat down behind the drum kit to play the drums as well, the man replies that he found it completely unbelievable that it’s possible to play that wildly and to sing that insanely good at the same time. And that actually sums up my experience quite nicely. Amazing concert at the new location. What bands are you looking forward to the most at this years festival? Dead Kosmonaut, Masters Hammer og Alien Force Are there one or more bands, who have not yet played MMF, that you would wish to see at the festival? I could properly name 60 bands I think (and hope) would fit fairly to the festival’s musical stile and fiances. But here I will merely mention 10 bands: Primordial, Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath, well if he even still plays live?), Repulsion, Tormentor (Hungary), Venom, The Coffinshakers, Nekromantix, Cirith Ungol, Sadistic Intent and Mysticum In your opinion, what makes MMF unique? And how would you convince someone that’s never been to the festival to by a ticket for this years festival? All the festivals I’ve been to in Denmark, Germany and Sweden have had something about them that have made them unique and different in their own way. If Metal Magic is more unique and special that the other festivals is hard to say. If I should convince someone to come, I would definitely start by mentioning the prize of beer. It’s fantastic and very rare that you can by a draft beer at 25 DDK at a metal festival in today’s Denmark. That has (as far as I can recall!) not changed very much throughout the last 11 years. And that is fantastic. It’s possible for everyone to be a part of it regardless of your own personal finances. And then there is the music! It’s a matter of taste, yes! But I think there is always something worth seeing every year. And I think Metal Magic every year does what is possible to mix up the genres and attract some strong underground names, and also to have some quite large bands as well. There should be at least 3-4 bands that could tempt you to visit the festival in Fredericia. And then there is the whole atmosphere. It is really top notch. Drunk and happy people headbanging and partying constantly for 3 days. This is properly what really makes a particular impression. Because Metal Magic is, in my view, a great garden party with great music. Thank you to E. Bregendahl Photography for the photo. Check out her other nice photos here: https://www.facebook.com/EBregendahlPhotography/ DANISH VERSION Interview med stamgæst, Kim Non-Stop Kim bor i Fredericia og har været en fast gæst på festivalen lige siden det første år. Han har aldrig været en del af planlægningen eller været frivillig, som sådan. Selvom han alligevel er blevet lokket til at hjælpe lidt med festivalens årlige trykte program. Men han brænder for festivalen og han er et fast element hver gang der sker noget i Fredericia, som er Metal Magic relateret. Han er med andre ord en sand Friend of Metal Magic Festival, og det var derfor oplagt at få en snak med ham om, hvad festivalen betyder for ham. Fedt at du vil stille op til et interview med os Kim! Festivalen har jo været igennem en stor udvikling de sidste år. Hvad synes du om den nye lokation, festivalen har fået? Det var så lidt. Festivalen har været igennem rigtig meget siden 2008, synes jeg, og sidste år kom den største ændring i form af den nye lokation ved Fredericia idrætshal. Jeg var en smule nervøs ved tanken om at skulle opleve Metal Magic på en stor og åben græsplæne uden bygninger. Men det var en super fed oplevelse og fungerede godt med alle de store telte, madboderne og øludskænkningen. Stedet er rigtig fedt. Jeg er glad for, at vi er blevet afskåret betydelig mere fra bygninger og borgere i byen. Der er mere ro og plads til at skeje sig ud på det nye sted. Du har jo været gæst på festivalen alle år, den har været afholdt. Hvad er dit tidligste minde om MMF? Mit tidligste minde, må vel være mit første skridt på festivalen. Jeg kom for sent den første dag på festivalen i 2008 og nåede akkurat kun lige at hører Johnny Nightmare sige farvel og tak. Haha... Hvad er dit bedste minde? Puha.. Det er svært bare at nævne et enkelt tilfælde. Der har virkelig været mange gode minder med en masse folk og koncerter. Nogle minder har man måske glemt med årene. Men et lidt specielt minde jeg har, er fra Metal Magic 3 i 2010, hvor jeg havde listet mig ned på det indendørs toilet for lige at pisse af. Der står en mand nede ved håndvasken med et håndklæde over sit hoved og han er i gang med at tørre sit hår. Da jeg går forbi ham, giver jeg ham et godt klap i ryggen og siger noget hen af, at man skal sgu huske at tørre sig ordentlig efter et lokums besøg. Personen bliver meget forskrækket, og da han vender sig om og kikker på mig, ser jeg at det er Kevin Heybourne fra Angel Witch! Jeg underskylder hurtigt, og prøver at rette det pinlige øjeblik lidt ud ved at nævne det på engelsk. Manden var heldigvis flink nok til at svare ”Yes Of Course”. Da du var til den første MMF, havde du så forestillet dig, at festivalen ville udvikle sig som den gjorde og blive et tilbagevendende event, som nu kører på 11. år? Jeg har altid troet at der ville være Heavy Metal arrangementer i Fredericia. Og som ville være arrangeret af arrangøren bag Metal Magic. Ingen tvivl om det. Om jeg havde troet på 9 festivaler i streg på den gamle lokation (ungdomshuset i Fredericia). Det havde jeg nok ikke, for synes, at der har været lidt modvind igennem årene også. Jeg havde heller ikke troet den gang, at festivalen ville flytte, og slet ikke at den ville stå så meget på egne ben som den gør i dag. Jeg ved stadig ikke om den vil fortsætte derudaf i mange år på det nye sted. Men jeg håber det selvfølgelig! Jeg ved, det er tæt på umuligt at fremhæve én koncert som den bedste. Men har du alligevel lyst til at prøve at fremhæve nogle koncerter, som du synes, var noget helt særligt, og som kun kunne opleves på MMF? Ja det er stort set umuligt at frem hæve bare én. Og om det kun kunne opleves på Metal Magic, det har jeg nok lidt svært ved at afgøre. Jeg kunne nævne 10, men for ikke at ende med at skrive flere siders beretning, nøjes jeg med de 3 som kommer til mig først. Abysmal Grief på Metal Magic 2 i 2009. Det var virkelig genialt. Jeg har set bandet 2 gange siden, og det ser ud til aldrig at blive det samme igen. Jeg ved ikke hvad de gør forkert live nu, men deres udgivelser er heldigvis geniale hver gang! De havde bare en stærk energi den dag. God lyd og fantastisk med timingen af scenelys. En uforglemmelig stemning. Mortuary Drape på Metal Magic 6 i 2013. Igen en fantastisk stemning på den indendørs scene på den gamle lokation. At se forsangeren (Wildness Perversion) rende frem og tilbage som en abe på scenen, mens han var helt skudt af i ritualer. Det var alt for fedt. Og den lille kutte klædte bassist med den virkelig store 5 strengede grønne bas. Det var som at se et sci-fi horror show folde sig ud, og blive vildere og vildere. Og igen, super lyd og fedt scenelys. ABSU Metal Magic Part Zero 2017. Ja. Jeg var faktisk pænt tilfreds med den koncert. Den var kort. Og der var lidt vrøvl med lyden. Men ABSU var bare en stærk oplevelse. En mand, som dukker op ved siden af mig sidst i koncerten, spørger om jeg ved hvor forsangeren er. Og da jeg forklarer at forsangeren lige har sat sig ned for at spille trommer også, siger manden at det er da helt ufattelig at man kan spille så vildt og synge så sindssygt på samme tid. Og det beskrev faktisk også min oplevelse ganske fint. Fantastisk koncert på den nye lokation. Hvilke bands ser du mest frem til i årets program? Dead Kosmonaut, Masters Hammer og Alien Force Er der et eller flere bands, som endnu ikke har spillet på MMF, som du drømmer om at se på festivalen? Jeg kunne vel nævne 60 bands, som jeg tror (og håber) vil passe nogenlunde ind i festivalens stil og økonomi. Men jeg nævner lige 10 hurtige: Primordial, Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath, hvis han da gider spille live mere?), Repulsion, Tormentor (Ungarn), Venom, The Coffinshakers, Nekromantix, Cirith Ungol, Sadistic Intent og Mysticum Hvad er det, efter din mening, der gør MMF helt speciel? Og hvordan ville du overbevise en person, der aldrig har været på festivalen før, til at købe billet til årets festival? Alle de festivaler jeg har prøvet i Danmark, Tyskland og Sverige har alle noget som gør dem speciele og anderledes på hver deres egen måde, Om Metal Magic er mere anderledes og speciel end andre festivaler er svært at sige. Men hvis jeg skulle starte med at overbevise nogen, ville jeg helt sikkert starte med at snakke om ølpriserne. Det er fantastisk og sjældent at man kan købe en fadøl til 25 kroner i dagens Danmark på en metal festival. Det har (så vidt jeg husker!) ikke ændret sig ret meget igennem de sidste 11 år. Og det er fantastisk. Alle kan være med her økonomisk. Så er der musikken! – Det er en smags sag ja! Men jeg syntes der er noget at komme efter hvert år. Og jeg synes, at Metal Magic hvert år gør hvad de kan, for at blande genrerne og hive nogle stærke undergrunds navne til, samt nogle halv store navne også. Der burde være minimum 3-4 bands som lokker en til Fredericia. Og så er der stemningen. Den er helt i top. Fulde og glade mennesker headbanger og fester konstant i 3 dage. Og det er måske nok det sidste her, som virkelig gør et specielt indtryk. For Metal Magic er i mine øjne en stor have fest med god musik. Tak til E. Bregendahl Photography for billedet.
