The Metal Blast Festival was founded in 2010 by a group of youths who are metal heads, with a background in music, art and events management who cared to develop and support the independent rock and metal bands through the Middle East. Ever since, the festival has been organized in Egypt annually. It gives domestic Egyptian metal bands the opportunity to share and exchange their music and cultural backgrounds with bands from other African and non-African countries with different cultures and levels of experiences and knowledge with one another. They cared to develop the bands and their local metal scene to deliver high quality experience for the audience and as they planned every year, they take a step forward inviting bigger bands from in and out of the middle east to perform at the festival.
They are planning to put the ‘Egypt Metal Blast Festival’ name on the world map of big scale metal music festivals. In the last 5 editions of this festival, international bands such as Bilocate(Jordan), Exile(Jordan), Perversion(Dubai), Blaakyum(Lebanon), Depopulate(Poland), Banisher(Poland), Materia(Poland) have graced the stage of the Egypt Metal Blast Festival. Popular Egyptian Metal Bands such as Scarab, Massive scar era, Anarchy, Crescent and other smaller bands, have also performed at this festival. This year marks the 6th edition of the Festival, and bands like Swallow The Sun (from Finland), Dimlight, Odious, Inner Missing, and Medic would be gracing the stage of the Metal Blast Festival 2016.
