Metaldays is a heavy metal music festival held annually in Tolmin, Slovenia since 2004. The festival has been more popular every year with more media coverage and in order to not let it grow too big, in 2010 the tickets were limited to 12,000.[2] The festival was organized by Austrian promoter Rock The Nation and Slovenian Master of Metal (MOM d.o.o.).[3][4]

2012 was the last year when the name METALCAMP was used. Since 2013 the festival is called METALDAYS.[5] The venue is the same, but the organizer has changed. Metaldays is organized by Slovenian promoter MIFI d.o.o.[6]


The festival is located at Sotočje, Tolmin, Slovenia, which lies in-between the two mountain rivers called Tolminka and Soča. METALDAYS has two festival-reserved beaches and a camping area.[7]
