Zivon Gurung says : “The fest is divided into two days; Day 1 is purely dedicated to Grindcore and
other extreme form of Metal while Day 2 is especially dedicated to Old School Metal, though a little
mix up should not surprise anyone. NDF is very emotional to respectfully dedicate its stage to two of
the most respected drummers that the metal world recently lost. Day 1 stage will be called ‘Martin
Kearns Stage’ (Bolt Thrower) and Day 2 stage will be called ‘Jim Konya Stage’ (Nun Slaughter)”.
