Killtown Bookings

KTDF / HDDT – R.I.P

KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST is the reason why Killtown Bookings started. After doing the first edition of the fest, the demand for European tours around the fest, resulted in part of the organizing collective starting this booking agency. KTB has then grown into a full time operation in the years after.

Kill-Town Death Fest saw the light with the first edition in September 2010. It was organized by a collective based in Copenhagen, Denmark organized under the Association “Undergrundsmusikkens Fremme” (Underground Music Promotion). KTDF was organized after the DIY principles meaning that it was 100% volunteer run where neither the bands, the organizers or any of the people working for the fest were getting paid. It was all done for the sheer passion and love for underground music.

KTDF set out to promote underground death metal with a primary focus on the Scandinavian scenes, but also including bands from the rest of Europe/the world. KTDF grew a reputation throughout the years as one of the best and most recognised underground metal festivals in Europe and had a following of die hard death metal fans from around the world participating every year.

KTDF held 5 successful editions – the last one was held in September 2014.

The first edition of the DIY doom, stoner, sludge sister festival of KTDF was held in May 2014; HEAVY DAYS IN DOOMTOWN – organized by a sub collective of the Undergrundsmusikkens Fremme Association. HDDT quickly became very popular and attracted festival goers from around the world. The festival set out to do 4 themed festivals after the elements – Earth, water, fire and air and successfully did so – the last edition was May 2015.

Many people have been asking if the festivals will be held again… We cant really say anything concrete at the moment, but the Undergrundsmusikkens Fremme Association is still active, so keep your eyes and ears open. There might be something new coming your way in 2017…
