Hellfest returned in 2022 after its two-year-long hiatus, with not one, but two completely jam-packed, sold-out weekends. The festival began on June 17th in Clisson, France with seven full days of performances from over 300 of the biggest metal and hard rock acts in the world. The Hellfest lineup included many Ernie Ball artists such as Metallica, Deftones, Suicidal Tendencies, Red Fang, Steve Vai, and many more.
