Hellfest announce first lineup, 140+ bands to come

France’s Hellfest have announced the first wave of bands for the upcoming event. The announcement includes headliner Aerosmith, with Linkin Park and System of a Down among others.

Perhaps the most surprising is the inclusion of Guns N Roses on the lineup NOT in a headline slot, but there must be a good reason for it (we’re hoping it’s a Europe tour…).
