Wow! This has been a real killer edition! We had an awesome time and we hope you guys as well!
We want to thank all the volunteers, people who helped out one way or the other and all the bands for everything!
Unfortunately, like some of you guys have heard, we got screwed big time by the t-shirt printer. They only delivered less then half of our complete order, resulting in no BFI shirts and no grey HDF size M shirts.
We tried everything to get them on time but they are not coming anymore. Therefore we will refund all orders we couldn't deliver as soon as possible. Also if you haven't picked up you pre-ordered t-shirt then we will refund the money as well.
Again we learned a lot of things for the next killer edition! We would really like to hear your feedback about what you liked and what you didn't like or anything that could be useful to us. Leave a comment on Facebook, send a message to email@example.com! or fill out the form on the contact page.

Saturday sold out! Extra tickets!25-06-2013
All Saturday tickets are sold out! This means that there are no Saturday tickets available at the door. The only chance to get in on Saturday (if you have not pre-ordered a Saturday ticket) is with a combi ticket! Get yours now!
Because the Saturday turned out quite popular we converted 40 combi tickets to Saturday tickets! So there are Saturday tickets available.
Cote d'Aver replaces Putridity20-06-2013
Some news from the HDF front:
Putridity cancelled so we worked really hard to find a replacement on this very short term, and we did: Cote d'Aver. They have a new album out so we are sure they are going to blow you guys away!
Because Cote d'Aver was added to the line-up we made some changes to the timetable. In short: Cote d'Aver will open up on Friday and Orphalis will open on Saturday. The other bands on Saturday will go up one timeslot. View the timetable.
Some other notifications: we are selling a very limited amount of t-shirts.
If you want one you'll need to be very early! Don't forget to print your eTicket if you have one, you will need this to enter (for the pre-sale price) and pay at the venue. Remember to only bring cash (there is no pin at the venue)!. Please read the info for everything about the tickets and the houserules.
8 days left and the last perparations are happening as we speak! Getting more excited everyday!

Headliner news and Vomitous03-06-2013
We have an announcement to make. Because Internal Suffering was given the change to play at a big festival in Colombia on saturday we made the decision to switch the headliners between friday and saturday. This means that Internal Suffering will be headlining the friday and Carnivore Disprosipus will headline the saturday.
Also tonight Vomitous made the following statement in regard to drummer issue:
First we would like to extend a big thanks to all the people who have supported us in the process of finding a session drummer! Really awesome to see all dedicated people in this scene helping out. Also a big thank you to all the drummers who have shown interest in filling in on the drums for us!
So after looking through some alternatives we decided that Alessandro "Venders" Santilli - Drummer will fill in as a session drummer for us at our gig at Houten Deathfest!
Another update as well: I (Gustav) will be the second vocalist for Vomitous from now on. I will still do the bass of course. Congrats Erik Karlsson for being the first one with the right guess. You shall recieve a promo and a logo patch for that.
See you guys in Holland!
We as well want to thank everybody for helping these guys out so quickly to make it possible for Vomitous to play at Houten Deathfest.
Less then a month away and we are getting excited! :)
Announcement from Vomitous29-05-2013
Update: Vomitous posted the following announcement:
As Hebert is leaving the band we are looking for a session drummer for the gig at Houten Deathfest. If anyone of you know a drummer that has the ability to learn a few of our songs in a month and is willing to help us out please get in touch with us ASAP!
So if you know somebody (or yourself) please contact Vomitous!
Maybe some of you already read this but for the people who didn't, tonight the following statement was released by Vomitous:
Dear Vomitous supporters,
I have a sad announcement to make.
I resign as a drummer for Vomitous.
This year has brought many changes to my life. Some good and some bad.
My enthusiasm for this genre has bleached over the years and I have found myself in a position that makes it difficult for me to continue as an honest drummer for Vomitous. This decision will have some serious consequences.
And one of them is that Houten Deathfest will not happen for Vomitous.
I'm deeply sorry for this inconvenience, but I cannot do a gig this way.
May the light shine in Darkness
About 30 minutes later the following announcement was made by Vomitous in reply to the comments:
There's been some misunderstanding here. Yes, Hebert is sadly leaving Vomitous. But we're hoping that we can save the Houten Deathfest situation by finding a temporary live drummer.
I know that Arnoud is away for a few days and I couldn't get a hold of him, so currently all I/we know is what Vomitous announced. I think I speak for Arnoud and a lot more people that we really would love it to have Vomitous still play HDF one way or the other. We will keep you guys posted as soon as we know more.
About sleeping in the car11-05-2013
A few weeks ago a new police station opened very close to the venue. Therefore we want to point out that sleeping in the car, which on it self is not allowed, could be a problem and that you are requested to leave. We are not telling you what or what not to do, but don't says you didn't know!
