OK, time to make it official and confirm the rumours: Turisas will be headlining the 2012 version of PaganFest America. We will be joined by Alestorm (Scotland), Ex Deo (Italy), Arkona (Russia) and Huntress (USA).

In regards to the upcoming tour, frontman Mathias Nygard comments:
“It took time but finally we had a chance to make it back to North America. After many successful tours there with acts like Cradle of Filth and Dragonforce during the past few years, it’s great to return as a headliner. This is a killer combo with great variety – some of the most twisted acts of the folkier side of metal! Be prepared for a great night out – I expect to witness some crazy audiences!”
