20 new acts revealed!

Nyhet-hemsida-eng.jpg

ZZ Top, Tenacious D, Disturbed, Axel Rudi Pell, Blackberry Smoke, Candlemass, Powerwolf, Gorgoroth, Green Jellÿ, The Night Flight Orchestra, Jag Panzer, Blaze Bayley, FM, Krisiun, Myrath, Thundermother, Zal Cleminson's Sin Dogs, Jared James Nichols, The Quill and Gathering Of Kings are now confirmed for Sweden Rock Festival 2019! Another 45 acts remain to be announced.


2019 will mark 50 years since the formation of ZZ Top and 10 years since they last played at the Sweden Rock Festival. Now the world's greatest blues rock trio is heading back to Sölvesborg to let classics like "Gimme all your lovin'", "Sharp dressed man", "Tush", "La grange" and many more sound over the Sweden Rock fields once again.


Actor Jack Black and guitarist Kyle Gass started Tenacious D as a bar show act, but their humoristic style and witty lyrics soon made them huge. Black's film career only allows the band to tour sporadically, but in Sweden they have lately managed to create chaos at an over populated free amusement park show and sell out an acoustic show at Arenan in Stockholm in virtually no time at all. Needless to say, when they make their Sweden Rock debut, it will be as a full, electric band.


Disturbed has remained in major league of modern metal throughout the 2000's, much thanks to songs like "Stricken", "Down with the sickness" and "Indestructible". Their fanbase is likely to have expanded even further with their hit cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic "The sound of silence" a couple of years ago. We have wanted the band back to Sweden Rock since their hugely successful 2008 show and in June it is finally time!

 

Also added to the 2019 line-up are Axel Rudi Pell, Blackberry Smoke, Candlemass, Powerwolf, Gorgoroth, Green Jellÿ, The Night Flight Orchestra, Jag Panzer, Blaze Bayley, FM, Krisiun, Myrath, Thundermother, Zal Cleminson's Sin Dogs, Jared James Nichols, The Quill and Gathering Of Kings.

Myrath to play second show! The Tunisian band Myrath played an amazing show on the tent stage this afternoon. Not only does their melodic, middle-eastern metal sound highly original - they also put on a great show with fire jugglers, a dancer and an illusionist. After Behemoth unfortunately had to cancel their show tonight, Myrath have now agreed to stand in for them on extremely short notice and play their second Sweden Rock show of the day. We are of course aware that Myrath is a smaller band and play a completely different kind of music than Behemoth, but their show earlier today was truly spectacular...

Behemoth show cancelled Extremely sad news: several members of Behemoth have been stranded on Frankfurt airport due to flight problems. Because of this, the band will not be able to play their show tonight. The band sent the following message to their fans at Sweden Rock: "Legions of Sweden Rock - due to an error made by our airline, we have been forced to cancel tonight's show. This was an extremely important show for us; we tried to rectify the situation for the parts of our touring party affected but were met with further delays meaning we are unable to make it to the...

Food poisoning Rosenlunds Camp Site Today during Saturday afternoon, 9 people that have eaten chicken baguettes from Rosenlund's Camping area have fallen ill with food poisoning. Rosenlund's Camping is located about 1 kilometer south of the festival area, and the vendor has been shut down. If you have eaten chicken/chicken baguette and start to develop serious symptoms of food poisoning, we advise you to visit the red cross tent located at "plattan" (the asphalt area in front of entrance 2). If you have less serious symptoms, we recommend water and rest.

Organic news in the Pilgrim Bar! The Pilgrim Bar is our first organic bar, located in the new food area The Smoke Pit. Here we will serve organic beer on tap, the unfiltered Falcon Pilgrim eco beer, the all new organic cider Somersby Cloudy Pear and organic wine. Of course we also have several non-alcoholic options. The beer and the cider are - like most of the drinks all over the festival - produced at Carlsberg Sweden's brewery in Falkenberg or at the water production center in Ramlösa. In 2017, Carlsberg was the first large brewery in Sweden to start producing carbon-dioxide neutrally, with 100 % "green"...
