Linkin Park flipped off at ‘Hellfest’

Posted by on June 20, 2017

This year’s Hellfest had an interesting mix of headlining acts for fellow metalheads. The three-day festival took place this past weekend and it included Deep Purple, Aerosmith and Linkin Park as the three headliners. While other metal acts consisted of Rob Zombie, Slayer, In Flames, Sabaton, and Kreator, fans managed to stick around to see a changed Linkin Park conclude the event.

The group managed to perform a few classic hits such as “One Step Closer,” “In The End,” and “Numb.” However, material from their new metal-less and ESP guitar lacking album One More Light, didn’t resonate to all in attendance. It was during their performance of the not so heavy “Heavy,” when fans flipped the band off.

Frontman Chester Bennington responded to these outbursts on his Twitter and luckily for their French fans, he didn’t threaten to punch anyone.

A video from their performance surfaced on YouTube and around ten seconds in the clip, you will see a fan throwing a beer cup at the frontman:
