BACK ON TRACK – HOLE IN THE SKY ANNOUNCE FIRST BANDS FOR 2011
It’s been a while!
Due to issues in regard to the main stage venue, we were forced to sit back and wait until we found a proper solution to the matter. As it happens, it all turned out for the best in the end. The scheduled renovation work for USF is postponed, so we’re able to carry on with the same setup as before – two days at the Garage club, finishing of with two days at USF.
This has naturally caused some delays as we couldn’t start the booking process until we knew what we were dealing with. But from now on, we will go full throttle. So thank you all for being patient! In true Hole in the Sky fashion we want to present the best of the established acts along with the most exciting new breed the underground has to offer. So here is a little cocktail for you to start with: Seminal black metal legends MARDUK, the obscure GHOST from Sweden, and for the first time in Norway, USBM cult act NEGATIVE PLANE.
We will be back with more announcements very soon. And don’t forget:

These Swedish legends have steamrolled over audiences worldwide for the past twenty years with their relentless Black Metal Panzer Attack, and finally the time has come to present Marduk at Hole in the Sky. Reawakened by the introduction of maniac frontman Mortuus, their last couple of albums is rightly hailed as among their very best, and this performance will surely be something special.
Who these much talked-about Swedish gentlemen actually are remains a mystery, but their modern-day classic «Opus Eponymous» was probably THE most revered metal/doom-rock album in 2010. In light of that it is with great pleasure we can present Ghosts very first live performance in Bergen and Hole in the Sky. Known for their spellbinding live rituals, this will no doubt be a blinder.
USBM is a force to be reckoned with, and no other band backs up this statement as well as New York-outfit Negative Plane. Creating a sensation in the underground with their first album «Et In Saecula Saeculorum» five years ago, their much anticipated sophomore offering «Stained Glass Revelations» has actually managed to surpass expectations even among the most seasoned and critical listeners. We are immensely proud to present this exclusive live ritual at Hole in the Sky 2011.
Hole in the Sky will take place the 24th – 27th of August 2011.
