It's time to move on and create our own festival brand. Therefore, in 2019, the first Metal East: festival, which will be created by the team formed over the years under the symbol of the Nove Kolo. We will take into account all the experience gained, eliminate the shortcomings and keep all the best from previous festivals." [translated from Ukrainian by Noizr]
