All of us from the HDDT crew are working on full speed to get everything ready for Thursday! We are looking so much forward to the fest and to meet all the bands, partners and guests who have supported this event! We are stoked beyond our wildest imagination that so many people have been buying tickets in advance! Thanks so much!
Just to put all rumours down; THERE ARE STILL TICKETS FOR UNGDOMSHUSET FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY!
If you wanna be 100% sure to get in we advise you to buy your ticket online before the fest starts. It will be cheaper and better for us, but the tickets we havent sold in presale will be sold at door. We advise people who wants to buy tickets at the door to arrive early.

Unfortunately TROUBLED HORSE (swe) have had to cancel their performance at this years HDDT. We have received the following statement explaining the situation: “We are very sorry to inform you that we have to cancel our show at Heavy Days In Doomtown. Our friends (and bassplayer Ola’s other band) WITCHCRAFT just had to cancel their upcoming European tour (w. Orchid and Free Fall) due to serious health issues. Last night we were asked to fill in for them and do this European tour, this is something we feel we have to do to help Witchcraft! Again, very sorry for this!” //Troubled Horse
As a replacement we were lucky that Cough is bringing GRIME from Italy. Grime will be opening Dødsmaskinen at 16.00 on Saturday instead of Skraeckoedlan (swe) who has been moved to Sunday at 21.00 in Dødsmaskinen. To see the full lineup changes see below.
Grime is a 3-piece sludge band from Trieste, Italy. They started their mission back in the summer of 2010 and their only goal ever since have been to bring destruction to a town near you. Their sound is rooted into the rotten burial ground and their songs are the sound of a decaying swamp filled with trash. Their slow and heavy groove is filthy and vicious, guitar riffs are sharp and covered with rust, drums and bass hit with the unstoppable power of a mud avalanche.
Grime, EP – 2011
Grime: Saturday 4th 16.00 in Dødsmaskinen (instead of Skraeckoedlan)
Skraeckoedlan: Sunday 5th 21.00 in Dødsmaskinen (instead of Dark Buddha Rising)
Dark Buddha Rising: Sunday 18.00 at the Main Stage (instead of Troubled Horse)

Finally we have the design ready for the screenprinted HDDT II poster!!! Once again the 13th Sign Collective have made an amazingly beautiful design! The poster wil be hand silkscreened on thick quality paper in a limited amount and be included in the HEAVY PACKAGE. We still have Heavy packages for sale, so hurry up and secure yourself a copy of the poster (and the other goodies), before they sell out. Copies not sold in the Heavy Packages will be for sale during the fest.
