The Nova Rock Festival 2024 is just getting started! Visitors of the Austrian music festival can look forward to Avenged Sevenfold and Parkway Drive tonight – but the new motto is: While the party is going on, the next party is already in the works. The organizers are already thinking ahead and surprising everyone with the first wave of bands for the 2025 celebration! And it’s an exciting lineup.

Nova Rock Festival 2025: These first bands adorn the lineup for next year

What’s special: Next year, the Nova Rock festival will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. The festival first took place in 2005 with around 30,000 visitors. Nearly 20 years later, 200,000 guests enjoy good handmade music in Burgenland – a success that will be celebrated properly next year.
With the first four bands, the party is already generating excitement. The masked legends Slipknot will headline the festival in 2025. They are currently celebrating the anniversary of their debut album from 1999.
Joining them are Electric Callboy and Wanda, who just last week rocked the stage at Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. And what’s essential? Of course, a band that will make you headbang. That job will be taken over by the crowd favorites Lorna Shore next year.
