The first of three awe-inspiring headliners, Finland’s folk metal clan Korpiklaani will lead the Nordic charge on the east coast of England for Hammerfest XII – bringing their oath-sworn warriors to Great Yarmouth for what will be a triumphant set full of mythology legend and vodka-soaked Finnish metal.
