The site of the festival wants to become a “tourist place of magnitude” thanks to the Guardian of Darkness

Definitely, hellfest never ceases to surprise us. While the extreme music festival in Clisson (Loire Atlantique) restarts this Thursday for the second part of its 15th edition, the organizers have sent heavy announcements. Alongside François Delarozière, from the Nantes company The machineevent director Ben Barbaud unveiled his project aimed at “transforming the aesthetics of an internationally recognized contemporary music festival into a large-scale tourist and cultural venue”.

In 2024, a new occupant will be in charge of animating the site all year round. Called the Guardian of Darkness, it will be a half-woman, half-scorpion machine made of wood and steel, which will move on eight legs and will be able to run, rear up, spit fire or water. . 10 meters high, it will wander around and will be able to carry 25 people on its back, like the Great Elephant. The creature will be housed on site in the Dark Portal, a 450 m2 hangar which will be both a maintenance site and a public reception area.

Because the objective of Hellfest is that this site, already open as place to walk to the year, live even more. A whole urban project has therefore been imagined around, on the site of the former Looksor nightclub (yes yes, the one popularized by Philippe Katerine) : a pedestrian forecourt inspired by that of the Machines de l’île in Nantes and a playground for children in the aesthetics of the festival will be set up, and there will also be a gigantic 600-seat brasserie on site, where the Hellfest IPA beer.

Work will start next year for the site to be inaugurated for the 2024 edition, say the project leaders. A show of the Guardian of Darkness is already planned a few days before.
