Beyond The Gates 2024 will take place between July 31 – August 3, 2024 in Bergen, Norway. The first wave of bands features everyone from Behemoth and Watain, to the Gaahl-fronted Trelldom playing their first show ever! The first wave of bands is:
- Trelldom (First concert ever)
- Vreid (Celebrating 30 years)
- Cult of Fire
"We are incredibly proud to announce the first batch of bands for Beyond the Gates 2024," said Beyond The Gates organizers. "We say this every time, but we do promise that next year is going to be something you’ve never experienced before. On the back of that statement, please welcome the juggernaut that is Behemoth. The band hasn’t played in Bergen since 2012, so their return is much welcomed. We’re also very excited to be able to present Satyricon, who is releasing a new album next spring, and will return to the live scene for the first time in five years!
"Moving on, Trelldom, featuring the iconic singer Gaahl, who will do their first live appearance ever since their formation in the early 90s. Vreid will celebrate 30 years of Sognametal, while Norwegian black metalers Djevel and Dødheimsgard will grant us with exclusive sets.
"Completing the first round of names are the Czech's Cult of Fire with their massive live show, the mysterious Darkspace from Switzerland and Polish Manbryne, who will do their first concert outside of their home country.
"As always, the festival will be stacked with numerous activities you can experience in addition to the live concerts: Guided tours, fairs, market and so forth."
