Hammerfest promoter John Davis of Chic Talent said, "Following last year's event, which included both Sodom and Destruction, we were really keen to have Germany's other leading thrash metal act play at Hammerfest. We are glad to be able to announce Kreator's inclusion in this year's bill. Last year's event was considered by many to be our best yet. Thriving in its new location Hafan y Mor Park, North Wales, we aim to raise the bar higher still."
