Interview With Eric Jarrin From Despised Icon

This is a big deal. After the huge, quite frankly ridiculous announcement that Despised Icon were indeed back for one night of brutality in April for Impericon Festival in Manchester, every fan of DI went straight back to their catalogue of the band’s song’s whilst the unbelievable news sank in. Now, we’re a mere two months away and we just had to have a chat with guitarist Eric Jarrin:

DESPISED ICON REVEALED TO PLAY IMPERICON FESTIVAL 2014

This festival just reached a whole new level of ridiculousness! Despised Icon now added to the lineup!

Hatebreed

Hatebreed21:45 - 23:00

Hatebreed have become an institution on any festival’s lineup and a summer without them would be unimaginable now. That is why they are also in Leipzig as a headliner on the spot! With their perfect blend of hardcore and metal are hits like Destroy Everything.
Asking Alexandria

Asking Alexandria20:20 - 21:20

The band: Danny, Ben, James , Sam and Cam probably reflect one of the biggest movers in recent years in metalcore . Few other bands are able to grow so quickly and to be able to sell out arenas and headlining festivals. Their last album FROM DEATH TO DESTINY confirms the latter and we look forward to hear the new songs live for the first time in Europe at the exclusive Asking Alexandria show at Impericon Festival Leipzig.
Terror

Terror19:20 - 20:00

Hardcore and nothing else embody terror. For over 10 years Scott Vogel and his guys have stage dived in their shows on countless stages around the world. No question remains that Terror this year must be then included on all four Impericon festivals. Cologne, Leipzig , Vienna and Manchester will bear witness to Terror.
Deez Nuts

Deez Nuts18:25 - 19:05

After I Killed The Prom Queen broke up JJ had actually continued to make music, until later when he mixed hardcore and hip hip and thus Deez Nuts were brought to life . A few years later JJ Peters plays sold out shows with his boys throughout Europe. Having created a name for themselves with albums such as STAY TRUE and BOUT IT, this is why we’re pleased to present Deez Nuts in Leipzig, Vienna, Cologne and Manchester!
Stick To Your Guns

Stick To Your Guns17:30 - 18:10

It was a mere year ago when Stick To Your Guns took to the stage at the Impericon Festival back in 2013.

With songs like We Still Believe, we expect nothing but great performances on all four festivals this year from the STYG guys!
Maroon

Maroon16:35 - 17:15

Who still remembers the time in which Heaven Shall Burn were the opening act for Maroon? Definitely a trip down memory lane! The shows at the Impericon Festival will be the last performances of the band and for sure ones that really should not be missed. For one last time Stay Brutal!
Northlane

Northlane15:45 - 16:20

Australia has as we all know, has countless bands on the rise. These five guys from Sydney have gained a huge fan base around the world and the end is far from being in sight. After their performances at the Never Say Die! Tour last year, we are pleased to finally be able to see North Lane and their songs from SINGULARITY on a big stage in Leipzig.
Nasty

Nasty14:55 - 15:30

Nasty cannot get stuck in any niche - they just do hardcore. Since they had their new album LOVE published on Beatdown hardware, it went steadily uphill for the band. After tours in Asia and the U.S. they are now again due to due a few shows in Europe. With the Impericon Festival coming, you should brace yourself to see Nasty from the pit!
Bury Tomorrow

Bury Tomorrow14:10 - 14:40

After their hit album UNION OF THE CROWNS, this year comes RUNES. We’re eagerly looking forward to the first gigs when their new material is out.

Betraying the Martyrs

Betraying the Martyrs13:25 - 13:55

But do not worry, a new album is already in the works – maybe, just maybe we’ll hear new material at the shows in April!
Final Prayer

Final Prayer12:40 - 13:10

The symapathetic guys from Berlin Kreuzberg are debuting the Impericon Festivals this year for the first time and will be playing one of their 10th anniversary shows. Some might refer to them as the Hatebreed of German Hardcore and thats a pretty good suit for this years festival right?
Rise of the Northstar

Rise of the Northstar11:55 - 12:25

France or Japan? With Rise Of The Northstar you get both. The guys from Paris, who would actually prefer to live in Japan. With manga and Co. they present their Saiya style and bring their Hardcore in the form of the 2-Step to their shows.
Science of Sleep

Science of Sleep11:10 - 11:40

Germany can hardly keep up with countries such as North America, England or Australia, but bands like Science Of Sleep provide hope for hard music from Germany. Opening the Impericon Festival in Leipzig, anyone who still needs a little lesson in SOS, should quickly educate themselves with the band’s new album EXHAUST.

Venue

AGRA Leipzig
Bornaische Straße 210

Bus and tram connection to the venue within Leipzig

Visitors travelling by bus or by train should get off at Leipzig central station. From there it is best to take the tram to the festival grounds.

Arrival via car / parking / parking fees / Low Emission Zone (LEZ)

EasyGo! Download

3.1 Arrival via car

Visitors travelling by car should enter the following destination into their navigation device: Bornaische Straße 210, 04279 Leipzig.

3.2 Parking

The AGRA fair grounds provide sufficient parking. There are approximately 2,500 parking spaces available. The parking zone K will be available for visitors and is also the nearest point to get to the festival grounds or the way into the mosh pit.

3.3 Parking fees

Unfortunately the owner of the parking area charges a parking fee in order to maintain safety and cleanliness in the area. The fee amounts to 4€ for the whole day. Therefore your car will be safe and right next to the festival entrance. In addition everyone who parks their car on the parking lot will receive a 5€ giftcard for impericon.com. From 9:00 AM onwards it will be possible to enter the area and park your car.

3.4 Caution Low Emission Zone

The city of Leipzig is a so called Low Emission Zone (LEZ) where you are only allowed to drive if your car has a valid green badge.

Definition Low Emission Zone: “A Low Emission Zone (english Low-Emission Zone (LEZ), german: Niedrig-Emission-Gebiet) is a geographically defined area which seeks to only allow access to low emitting vehicles with the aim of improving the air quality.” (Wikipedia)

Where can I get the required particle emission badge?

You can get your emission badge at the vehicle registration office, the engineers' associations, such as the Technical Inspection Authority (TÜV) or Dekra and at all workshops in Germany licensed to do an Emissions-Inspection (EI). There is also the possibility to order it online.

How much does a badge cost?

The price for an emission badge is around 5€ to 10€.

What is the penalty for not having a badge?

Vehicles without emission badges may not pass through the green zone, otherwise a penalty of 40,00€ and a penalty point in Flensburg impend, even if the vehicle would be allowed to pass through the zone based on its emission value. This is also valid for all vehicles registered in foreign countries, like cars, trucks, and busses, as well as for business travellers and for tourists.

Since the AGRA fair grounds are outside the environmental zone of Leipzig, it is possible to reach the ground without a badge. This is only recommended to people who are well versed in the area of Leipzig. We strongly recommend getting a badge if you are not from Leipzig.
4

Doors / festival wristbands / security check

You are only allowed to access the festival ground with a valid festival wristband which will be issued in exchange for a valid festival ticket. The wristband must be worn around your arm and cannot be transferred. The exchange takes place on the day of the festival. You will find the exchange station in the entrance area.

From 10:00 AM onwards it will be possible to obtain the festival wristband.

7

Minimum age/ parental permission

On the whole festival ground the German law for the protection of children and youths applies.
Children and youths below the age of 16 are only allowed to enter the festival in company of a custodial person or a person with parental power.
Youths that are at least 16 years old but below the age of 18 have to leave the festival at 12.00 am.

DON’T WORRY: The festival ends not later than 12.00 am so nobody will miss a band.

8

Photographing is allowed for private use only. However, audio and video recording is not permitted and any violation will be prosecuted.

Come along, have fun, party with us, dance and jump, but please always be careful with each other! Help people up that fall on the floor and keep your dancing on a level that’s healthy for everyone, please.
We won’t forbid crowd surfing, mosh pits or wall of deaths, but we ask you to pay attention to the people next to you and to help wherever it’s necessary.
If you dance too hard or go over the top in the mosh pit and by that endanger other visitor’s health, we are compelled to give you a warning and to expel you from the festival area if there should be no improvement to your behaviour.

11.2 Medical care

Fast medical care is provided. There’ll be a first aid area and enough medical assistants.
If you shouldn’t find one in an emergency, speak to the next security.

11.3. Noise level

You love hard music – that’s probably the most important reason why you’re attending this festival. Keep in mind, however, that you’ll be exposed to a high noise level. Though we’ll constantly measure the noise level, we advise you to protect yourself with earplugs. In a pinch a scrunched up tissue does the job.

12

Cloakroom

There’ll be a large cloakroom where your jackets and backpacks will be stored for a 2€ charge.
