Hi, there friends we are extremely happy to announce two more bands for our line up next year!
First of all, the most wanted band of our poll in up the hammers festival group, a band we’ve been trying for years to book. Please welcome for the first time ever in Greece the mighty FIFTH ANGEL!
In addition to that, we have a legendary NWOBHM band for their first time ever in Greece TRESPASS!

Hello brethren of the hammer!

Heir Apparent Cancelled Riot act steps in.
Unfortunately we have to cancel again the appearance of Heir apparent in Up the hammers festival. Singer Will Shaw left the band and the future of Heir Apparent relies taking the time necessary to find a new singer, the band deeply regret not being able to perform next year. We are extremely happy to announce RIOT ACT from NY. RIOT ACT is a new band formed by the two legendary RIOT guitarists Lou Kouvaris and Rick Ventura. The band will perform an amazing set full of RIOT songs from the golden early days keeping the old school sound alive! Up the hammers festival will be their first ever European show and we expect it to be one of the greatest performances in our festival ever!
[...]
Due to complications in their schedule, Wytch Hazel, unfortunately, had to cancel their appearance in UTH XV. We acted quickly to book the replacement, so join us in welcoming the band that released one of the best albums this year and one of the best new bands out there, the mighty Vultures Vengeance!
[...]
We are happy to announce that in order to thank YOU for the biggest pre-sale in the history of the festival, we will add 2 extra bands for the next year's edition and we will present you 8 bands each day, instead of 7!

There is no better way to celebrate this, by announcing Cyprus' metal legion, SOLITARY SABRED.

SOLITARY SABRED's previous album, "Redemption Through Force", was the ultimate mix of epic metal with technical power metal in the vein of the US metal legends of the olde. Currently, the band has completed the recordings of their third album and be sure that a huge suprise will be on the way. Chaos descends through Fire and Brimstone...

Attention Up the hammers fans!
For reasons that most likely you already know Agent steel cancelled their appearance at Up the hammers festival. We want you to know that we did everything possible to bring this unique voice perform but sometimes things just cant work. We had to move fast to find a kick ass replacement on time and we are more then happy to present you for the first time ever in Greece Legendary US Thrashers Toxik! The band will perform the entire “Think this” album and most of world Circus!

We would like to thank you for your amazing support, which resulted in sold out the Up the Hammers XV Warm UP fest! Your dedication gives us the strength to continue for another 15 years and more!

A last-minute cancellation by Argus gave us the opportunity to add one of the most legendary bands in Hellenic metal's history. Raise your fists in welcoming the mighty CRUSH !

Coup dur pour le festival, qui doit essuyer et composer avec les annulations contraintes et défections d'une bonne partie de l'affiche, mais sont tout de même parvenus à sauver les meubles en proposant des doubles sets pour TOXIK et ATLANTEAN KODEX, et des remplacements de dernière minute, bravo à eux pour une telle gestion de crise en tout cas :

Hi there friends
This week have been the most difficult in the history of Up the hammers festival.
It makes absolutely no sense to go now in details now we just need to state the facts.
As of now that we speak the law that was voted on 10 March by the Greek government says that no gigs over 1000 people will take place. Up the hammers is not even close to this number so this is not a problem for both warm up and main fest. We are following what the Greek government says every day and in case things change we will let you know immediately.
The last hours/days some of the bands expressed fear on traveling for medical or personal reasons and in the end decided to cancel their appearance in Up the hammers festival so Slough Feg, Trespass, Riot Act and Fifth angel are not coming to Greece. In addition to that Vultures Vengeance are stuck In red zone in Italy and Solitary Sabred cant make it to Greece. Dexter Ward will perform their set with Vaggelis from Valor and Nikos Papakostas of Strikelight as their singer Mark J Dexter is in red zone.
All other bands taking part in the festival are already here, on tour or willing to come to the festival so unless something else happens we expect no further cancellations.
We quickly searched for replacements and we now have in the line up Sacral rage, Remember Lizzy and Throne of Iron. In addition to that Atlantean Kodex will perform now full set and Toxik will headline both days performing different sets each day with entire “Think this” and “ World Circus” album.
More details about Running order etc t.b.a
We hope you all understand the difficult situation the Festival has to deal with and expect your support.

Toute leur bonne volonté n'aura malheureusement pas suffi, le festival comme la soirée d'échauffement sont annulés, avec des actions en cours pour trouver un créneau de report ultérieur :

Hi there everyone.

Unfortunately Main fest and warm up is cancelled.

Sleepless the last two weeks from the stress of this madness coming upon us, not knowing what to really do as I am not a doctor or a scientist. I am though responsible for hundreds people who spend money, made travel plans to attend the festival and 22 foreign bands. The burden organizing the festival was always too heavy for me but somehow in the end it worked despite random bullshit here and there. The festival gave me some of the greatest moments in my life that I will forever keep with me and they are too many to be mentioned here. This day came though that everything was not perfect in the festival and people driven by their panic of the current situation started bullying me for refunds as if we did the biggest mistake and we didn’t prove anything the last 15 years. As if we didn’t payed all the flights and got 0 refunds, As if we didn’t payed Shuttles, As if we didn’t payed promo, As if we didn’t payed hotels twice since our original Hotel was taken by the banks on Wednesday before the festival. As if the first thing we should do in this madness was to respond to everyone how and if they will get their money back. As if there was a magic solution that was solving all problems and we didn't take it.
In any case, this is our decision
Tickets for warm up and main festival will be used again when we manage again to set up the festival. Date will be announced ASAP
In case you cant make it you will most likely be able to sell them online.
Up the hammers 2021 is certainly happening with the bands we promised and more will be announced soon. The money to rebuild Up the hammers XV again will be payed by us but I am not sure what the future will bring as all this is just too much for me.
Sorry for all the problems we caused with this cancellation.

Manolis Karazeris

P.s. Those who preordered t-shirts can pick them up from no remorse records, latest tomorrow morning they will be there. If its not possible contact me so I can mail them.
P.s.2 Those who want to support the festival we have tons of Merch made
P.s.3 Some people suggest we do a crowdfunding. we have no clue if someone can help let us know
P.s.4 Tickets for next year will be available tomorrow at No Remorse records
