General terms and conditions for UNDER THE BLACK SUN Open Air


Feb. 25, 2024

This rather new German band released their debut album AWAKEN THE BLACK FLAME in 2023 and now it's time for their very first live appearance!
Inspired by classic 2nd wave Black Metal, Unhallowed will deliver a raging storm of aggressive songs with melodic guitar works and soul-piercing vocals!

Toward the Abyss! Get your tickets here: https://folter666shop.de/de/advanced_search_result.php...




Feb. 18, 2024

As we always want to find outstanding bands from the underground, this one really convinced us with their release AUS DER TIEFE. We're looking forward to Ortus from Rhineland-Palatinate playing songs of both of their EPs, their debut and their upcoming album on stage at UTBS2024!

In nightly silence - but only as songtitle. Get your tickets here:
https://folter666shop.de/de/advanced_search_result.php...




Feb. 11, 2024

Sometimes, among all the applications we receive, we find some very interesting bands and this is one of them. KILATUS from Malaysia released their debut album THE RETURN AND DARKNESS IT SHALL BE in 2021, and you really should listen to this one - as it's one hell of a ride. And we expect nothing less on stage at UTBS2024!

Enter the Depth of no Rebirth! Get your tickets here:

Attention!
Currently, there is a scammer mirroring our site and creating fake profiles, groups and sites (see pictures). Those are in NO WAY affiliated to Under The Black Sun-Festival, but despite numerous reports to Facebook, said profiles are not taken down.
Please, don't fall for those scam-attempts. There are no fake ticket links/info YET, but that's what we expect the endgame of this guy may look like, as he already is cutting the official ticket-links from copied posts on his site.

Use only the official channels!

Feb. 4, 2024

Founded in Montréal/Québec in 2016, Ossuaire will deliver melodic, raw and powerful Black Metal in the genre's pure tradition. With impetuous vocals, this band heralds a prophetic, anticlerical universe centered around a reversal of religious icons and the power garnered by christianity. So, a lot to see on stage at UTBS2024!
