Sweden Rock Symphony Orchestra

orkester_1.jpgThe next act confirmed for this summer's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival is not just another band but an absolutely massive project!


The Sweden Rock Symphony Orchestra is a grand symphony orchestra with 48 musicians and a choir who, together with a band and six invited guest star vocalists, will be performing newly arranged, well known hard rock and metal classics like you have never heard them before!


The orchestra usually goes by the slightly shorter name Sweden Symphony Orchestra and is one of the premier orchestras in Sweden. Founded by conductor Ulf Wadenbrandt, they have played all the major concert houses in Sweden, such as Berwaldhallen and Göteborgs Konserthus, as well as performing on national TV station TV4's new year's special, on the 25th anniversary tour of the immensely popular Rhapsody In Rock show among many other things.


As a professional orchestra conductor, Ulf Wadenbrandt is best known for his symphonic genre crossover concerts. Having worked with many of the leading orchestras and artists in Sweden, he has established himself as a well-respected conductor in high demand.


The rock band accompanying the orchestra will be the Swedish prog rock/metal band Freak Kitchen, with some extra help from former Magnum keyboardist Mark Stanway.


Participating vocalists:

Dan McCafferty (ex-Nazareth)

Tarja Turunen (Tarja, ex-Nightwish)

Joacim Cans (Hammerfall)

John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep)

Peter Tägtgren (Pain, Hypocrisy)

Joe Lynn Turner (ex-Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen)


This entire project is being put together for this one and only concert, so this will be a completely unique experience that no Sweden Rock Festival guest should miss!

HORISONT CANCELLED Unfortunately, Swedish band Horisont will not perform at Sweden Rock Festival in 2022 as planned. Read about why on the band's facebook page .

This will be the only Dropkick Murphys show in Sweden next summer. Another 12 bands out of a total of 89 bands remain to be announced. Read more about all the confirmed bands HERE
