Last weekend, Hammerfest returned to Prestatyn for its second year of drunken metal carnage. Once again, Thrash Hits sent out top snapper, Gary Wolstenholme along to the north coast of Wales to catalogue the heavy metal debauchery that results when you cram several thousand metallers into a holiday camp with enough booze to kill a man.
On top of this, we also had a couple of our writers rolling around the festival. Apparently they almost blocked a toilet on Sunday morning, such was the volume of their hangover vomits. Nice. Hopefully we’ll have some words about the festival from one of them soon enough, but for the time being, you’ll just have to marvel at Gary’s superb photos.
And this is just the shots from Day 1. Bloody hell.
