This meant that, in the second year ,the festival was already becomes three day, on two stages - one indoor stage and one outdoor, and which allows to camp at the festival site. In The third year, the MMF Crew started to organize a bus trip from the airport in Copenhagen to the festival and back again at the end of the festival. This is how the festival still works today.

When booking bands for the festival, there is a focus on bands that have never or rarely played in Denmark. While, A good mixture of upcoming young bands that deserve given the attention and old favorites still going strong!.  Absolutely, Bands from all parts of the world!

QUARTZ (UK-Nwobhm)


After announced The Danish 80's Heavy Metal heroes WITCH CROSS to their line up 2017, A few days ago, they announced another legendary of heavy metal and this time from sub-genres NWOBHM, 'QUARTZ'.  

Quartz initially performed in the midlands cabaret clubs as Bandy Legs, and signed to Jet Records in 1976, releasing their first single, "Bet You Can't Dance", under that name. They switched to Quartz in time for their debut album, produced by Tony Iommi and Chris Tsangarides. 

The band toured heavily during this time, playing the Reading Festival three times (1976, 1977 and 1980) and touring with of some of the larger Hard rock bands of the time (Iron Maiden, Saxon, UFO,Gillan and Rush).

Quartz endeavoured to deliver a hard rock sound that was both classic and commercial,the band could certainly deliver the goods courtesy of some twin guitar riffery when needed but would also offer a bit of sophistication too.

Quartz reformed in 2011 by playing a reunion gig on 16 December 2011 at The Asylum in Birmingham,England,   The line up consisted of Geoff Nicholls, Mike Hopkins, Derek Arnold, Malcolm Cope and vocalist David Garner.  The reunion proved to be succesful and Quartz continues to work together and is putting out a new album.
