το θέμα είναι αν ισχύουν τα περσινά εισιτήρια που δεν πουλήθηκαν στην δευτερογενή αγορά γιατί είμαστε όλοι metal brothers.
@Zippo190 δεν νομίζω να φύγει ο TMH. Απλά θα τον φέρουν να τραγουδήσει σίγουρα τα δύο τραγούδια από το "The Tyrant Sessions" και σε κάποια άλλα λίγα όπως έκαναν οι Omen φέτος που έφεραν τον Coburn Pharr να τραγουδήσει live. Επίσης, αυτό που λες.με την δευτερογενή αγορά δεν το καταλαβαίνω. Εννοείς να είναι ίδια τιμή για μονοήμερα και διήμερα όπως φέτος;
βασικά άστο δική μου γκρίνια είναι για την διαχείριση των εισιτηρίων του φεστιβάλ του 2020.
The evil rite of the black and the light We now reveal to you
Ο Tyrant ζει μόνιμα Θεσσαλονίκη τα τελευταία χρόνια οπότε είναι εύκολη πίστα.
Το including που γράφει σε συντομογραφία η αφίσα νομίζω ξεκαθαρίζει πως θα είναι guest και όχι main singer.
Σιγουράκι τα κομμάτια του demo του 92 με Tyrant (ηχογραφήθηκαν στα πλαίσια των προβών για το "Nightbreaker" και έγιναν και εφτάρι το 2005, με τίτλο "The Tyrant Sessions"). Δηλαδή "Magic Maker" & "Medicine Man".
Άντε μπορεί να πει και τα σπαθιά με τεκίλα για να χορέψετε λίγο.

We would like to inform you that we will soon announce the lineup for the warm-up show and some very exciting new additions to the main festival. We are extremely thrilled about the lineup and looks like it will be the best Up the Hammers in the festival's history.
With the announcement, the first phase of the presale will end, and afterward, the ticket price will be increased.
Please note that the capacity of the Gagarin Venue will be limited to 800 people. Given your great support so far, we expect to have a sold-out with two-day tickets alone, therefore we don't have any plans for single-day tickets yet.
Δεν λεω αδικα για καποια πραγματα, αλλα νομιζω πλεον οτι πιανεται ο κοσμος απο καθε λεξη για να βρει πατημα να πει την παπατζα του.
We are thrilled to announce 3 exciting new additions to our festival which grows bigger every day with your continuous support!
The band whose name is synonymous with the revival of traditional heavy metal returns to Greece for the Up the Hammers Festival! The fan-favorites Swedes, in Greece and worldwide, have prepared a spectacular show with anthems from their great 14 years of discography. Enforcer gained global recognition with the release of their first 4 albums, before releasing "Zenith" in 2019 and touring the world extensively, to the delight of their supporters. We simply cannot express how proud and excited we are to have them at our festival!
NWOBHM legends Tytan will visit Athens for the UTH festival! Formed in 1982 by Kevin Kevin "Skids" Riddles, after he departed from Angel Witch, Tytan released their debut EP "Blind Men and Fools" in the same year. Their all-time classic "Rough Justice" was recorded at that time, but didn't come out until 3 years later, when Tytan had already disbanded. The 2010s found the band reformed with a new lineup, which led to the release of "Justice: Served!" in 2017. After a series of exciting live shows, we are more than delighted to have them in Athens!
Blood Star (USA)
Newcomers from Utah, USA Bloodstar is the new creative endeavor from Visigoth guitarist Jamison Palmer whose new outlet harkens back to the classiest, most cruising, but also the darkest heavy metal of the 1980s. Their debut single titled "The Fear" was released in 2020, featuring two amazing songs of relentless classic heavy metal. Blood Star are set to release their long-awaited debut album in the near future and we couldn't be more excited!

As mentioned earlier, the first phase of the presale is officially over, and the 2day ticket rates have been adjusted to 95€. Get your tickets here: https://www.ticketservices.gr/event/up- ... ival-2023/
