What juicy news! During a show in Amsterdam on 19 November, Volbeat self-confirms that they will be playing at Pinkpop festival in 2020. They will probably be officially announced quite soon to join Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pinkpop takes place in Landgraaf, Netherlands, from 19 to 21 June 2020.

It looks like nothing can stop the Danish rock band. They spent the best part of the year touring the whole world, and now they are in the North of Europe. Anyways, the tour is not even over for them. After a break until May, they will take the road to meet their fans in the USA and Europe.

Volbeat fans can be happy. From now, they announced some festivals in the world:


  • 03: Epicenter Festival, Charlotte, UNITED STATES


  • 05-07: Rock am Ring, Nurburg, GERMANY
  • 05-07: Rock im Park, Nuremberg, GERMANY
  • 11-13: Greenfield Festival, Interlaken, SWITZERLAND
  • 14: Download Festival, Derby, UNITED KINGDOM

Volbeat will be in Europe in June, so it would not be surprising to see them in some other festivals, like Rock Werchter. The Belgian festival has not announced any names yet, and the band will probably be around. They could perfectly fit on their line up. By the way, Volbeat released an album, so it would make sense for them to play in some festivals in Europe.

Before Pinkpop, Mad Cool is another option. The Spanish festival announced a lot of bands. Some of them are rock bands, like Foals, but as it’s a four days festival, they still have some big names to announce. Volbeat could fit perfectly: they played in La Riviera and Razzmatazz, in Madrid and Barcelona, in 2019. They did not play in France in 2019, so we would not be surprised to see Volbeat there, like on Main Square or Hellfest Festival.


Volbeat are a Danish hard rock/heavy metal band from Copenhagen formed in 2001. The band released however its debut album The Strength/The Sound/The Songs in 2005. Since then Volbeat have released five more albums. All of their albums have been certified gold in Denmark, while upon the release of their fourth album Beyond Hell / Above Heaven the band reached a position on Billboard 200 for the first time. The band’s main sound consists of a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly, while Michael Poulsen’s distinctive voice also contributes to the unique sound of the band. They have performed at many festivals around the world and they are also considered one of the most energetic live bands of the last years.
