Slaughter to Prevail Directed a Massive Wall of Death

A few days prior to their set on Thursday (June 27), Slaughter to Prevail shared a post on social media declaring that they would attempt to draw the biggest wall of death in history during their performance.

While there's no way of determining whether they actually achieved that goal, it appeared that they came pretty close — the crowd was absolutely massive, and thus, the result of all the metalheads running into each other has gone viral on TikTok and other social media platforms.

††† (Crosses)' Set Cut Short Due to Technical Issues

According to some reports online, including one by Hellfest's official account on X (formerly Twitter), ††† (Crosses) experienced some technical issues during their set yesterday (June 30) that resulted in their set being cut short.

Apparently, the technicians were able to fix the situation later and the band resumed their show. However, they played to a much smaller audience the second time since people waited a while for the issues to be resolved.

"We also wanted to apologize for the technical problem which shortened Crosses' set, we will do everything possible to see them again quickly on the festival poster," the festival's post reads (translated via X).

Fans on Reddit said that the sound cut out three songs into their set, and the technicians fixed the problem about a half hour later.

A fan on Reddit noted that the app featured an SOS button that would send a distress signal to nearby officers so they could locate anyone in need of assistance.

Additionally, the Hellcare app offered preventative resources for alcohol, drugs, sexuality and hearing risks, as well as psychological support for attendees who may have experienced any distress.
