This is an incomplete list of heavy metal festivals. Heavy metal or simply metal is a genre of rock music  that developed in the late s and early s, largely in the United States and the United Kingdom. After the genre fused with other related genres such as punk rock in the late s, bands in the new wave of British heavy metal such as Iron Maiden and Saxon followed in a similar vein. Before the end of the decade, heavy metal fans became known as " metalheads " or " headbangers ", and there were festivals worldwide, both touring and stationary, dedicated to heavy metal subgenres and heavy metal itself. During the s, glam metal became a commercial force, while Underground scenes and extreme subgenres of metal such as death metal and black metal remained subcultural phenomena, though they have their own dedicated festivals as well.
