Another 5 acts confirmed for the Sweden Rock Festival 2015!

cob5.jpgAnother five acts have been confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival:

Finnish metal band Children Of Bodom have not played in Sölvesborg since 2004, so it is about time for a return appearance by ace guitarist Alexi Laiho and his cohorts. The concert will be their only in Sweden next year.

The legendary funk rock band Mother's Finest played a fantastic show at the 2010 edition of the festival, but a big part of our audience missed it due to heavy rain. Now they will get another chance.

ELP, or Emerson, Lake & Palmer, is one of the biggest names in progressive rock history. Carl Palmer keeps the groups music alive with his Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy. We saw one of their shows recently and were so overwhelmed that we simply had to book them.

Hard, doomy and gloomy goth metal will be on the menu when My Dying Bride, who have had a big part in shaping the genre since the early 90's, come to Sölvesborg for the first time.

Beastmilk was formed in 2010 and gained cult status already as a demo act. Now they are one of the most talked about new rock bands in the world, and their sound has been compared to acts ranging from Roky Erickson to Misfits, Killing Joke, Joy Division and The Devil's Blood. If you have not discovered them yet, now is the time!

Previously, 49 other acts have been announced, among them are Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Slash, Toto and Backyard Babies. A full list and additional information about all the acts can be found on our web site. Another 35 acts are still to be announced.


The last booking for our opening day, June 3rd, confirmed!


Swedish progressive death metal band Morbus Chron is the last booking confirmed for our opening day on Wednesday, June 3rd.

This means that the following bands will play this day: D-A-D, Evergrey, The Quireboys, Hell, Jon English, Lillasyster, Electric Mary, Hazy/Dizzy, Morbus Chron and The Order Of Israfel. One of the four band competition winners will be added to the Wednesday line-up. 

The 4-day ticket is just 200 SEK more than the 3-day ticket, so you get a lot of great bands and another great festival day at Sweden Rock for a small extra cost. But you need to hurry - the number of Wednesday visitors is limited to 13 000 and more than half the 4-day tickets have already been sold, so if you want the full Sweden Rock Festival experience it is time to get your ticket!

Another 19 acts confirmed for the Sweden Rock Festival!


We at the Sweden Rock Festival are happy to announce another 19 acts that have been confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival, which will take place in Sölvesborg in southern Sweden June 3rd to 6th

Def Leppard are returning to Sweden Rock after seven years, and this time their setlist will be completely focused on their best known tracks. And considering that these Brits are one of the best-selling hard rock bands of all time, there are plenty of hits to choose from.


Five Finger Death Punch made a big impression on the main stage audience at Sweden Rock 2013 and have been one of the most requested acts since then. Now they will be back for what will be their only Swedish show next summer.

Meshuggah are making their long overdue Sweden Rock debut, Opeth will play their only Swedish concert next summer at Sweden Rock, Airbourne and Manfred Mann's Earth Band are making much anticipated comebacks and Exodus will arrive with legendary vocalist Steve Souza back by the microphone. Evergrey will be playing twice - an electric show on the Wednesday and an aoustic set two days later.

Jon English got plenty of attention and acknowledgement when his last Sweden Rock appearance was broadcast on national Swedish radio. This summer he returns for a more intimate performance at a smaller stage. Kaipa was one of the leading Swedish progressive acts in the 70's - for Sweden Rock, their classic line-up is reforming to play the group's early material under the name Kaipa Da Capo. The Swiss band Samael will be performing their classic black/industrial metal hybrid "Ceremony of Opposites" in its entirety.


Also added to the festival line-up are LillasysterMad MaxTony CareyAvatarElectric Mary, Battle Beast,  Hazy/Dizzy and The Order Of Israfel.


In October, it was announced that, among several others, Mötley CrüeJudas PriestTotoBackyard Babies,HammerFallD-A-D and Dark Tranquillity will be performing at next year's Sweden Rock Festival.
