Just confirmed! Sepultura will headline day zero at Underwall Festival 2014! Thursday, June 5th, Brazilian pilgrims of South American metal music will hit the stage in Zadar to show us why they’re true legends of heavy metal! Prepare for uncompromising thrash assault, and remember… The Mediator Between Head and Hand Must Be the Heart!
Underwall Festival will be paying tribute to one of the most important metal festivals on the entire planet – Wacken Open Air. The fact that the festival’s 25th edition is already completely sold out deserves the attention of every metalhead alive.
On Wednesday, June 4th, a day before the official start of Underwall 2014, the city of Zadar will host the grand finale of Wacken Metal Battle for bands coming from the areas of Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia. Everyone present in Zadar on that day will be welcome to witness the battle for a slot at Wacken Open Air and to cheer for the victor. This marks the fifth day of metal events in Zadar during Underwall, which will also feature soon-to-be-announced clinics held by members of more prominent bands booked for Underwall.
Everyone with a VIP ticket for Underwall will be given free admission for WMB Croatia, while the admission for the general public will be of a symbolic nature.

UNDERWALL 2014 FESTIVAL
ZADAR, June 5, 2014 – June 8, 2014
The UNDERWALL Festival, whose first edition in Zadar at the start of the 2013 season was a success, is announcing its second edition in 2014, this time lasting for four days and featuring some of the most eminent names from the world metal, hard rock, hardcore and punk rock scenes. After the first edition was headlined by Destruction and Xentrix, next year’s four-day edition will be visited by a much larger number of world famous stars from the aforementioned genres, which testifies to the fact that the project of Croatian metal bands – who intended UNDERWALL to be a sort of a response to the diminished and canceled local scene events – was a complete success, so it was decided to go further.
This time there will represent a more diverse experience, featuring hard rock, hardcore and punk rock bands, to make the program more interested to a larger number of potential visitors. The festival has a tendency to expand, while fan interest on the festival’s Facebook page has demonstrated an ever increasing thirst for an event of this type. UNDERWALL’s big advantage is that Zadar, as a major tourist destination, is connected by airplane to almost twenty other European cities, most of which are RyanAir low cost flights, which makes the festival very accessible and especially attractive for foreign visitors. The fact that UNDERWALL is the only international open air metal and rock festival practically located by the sea, the arrival to Zadar, a city surrounded by five national parks and two parks nature parks, makes this an unique tourist-adventure experience featuring heavy music. UNDERWALL will feature nearly 40 bands from almost all continents, with additional festival attractions, soon to be announced. The entire festival lineup will be known by the end of November 2013.
