- the first batch of bands for Sweden Rock Festival 2019 are now confirmed!

 

This year's Sweden Rock Festival sold out in a week and turned into an amazing event with perfect weather, a peaceful atmosphere and lots of great performances by some of the best bands in rock and metal. Tickets for the 2019 edition of the festival are going on sale on Thursday at 11.00 CET and we are now finally able to announce the first batch of confirmed bands!

 

After a 45 year long and tremendously successful career, Kiss recently announced their farewell tour. We are happy to announce that the only Swedish date on next summer's European leg of this tour will be at the Sweden Rock Festival on Friday, June 7th. Fans can expect two hours of immortal rock classics and according to the band, their stage show will be the most spectacular they have ever toured with!

 

When one of the most legendary rock guitarists of all time, Ritchie Blackmore, decided to return to hard rock after 20 years of mostly acoustic medieval music, it was, of course, something of a sensation. Since the comeback, his revived band Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow has been very selective about performing live and next summer they will play just four concerts in Europe. Luckily, one of them will be at the Sweden Rock Festival!

 

Here are all 17 acts confirmed for next year's festival so far:

KISS, RITCHIE BLACKMORE'S RAINBOW, DEF LEPPARD, AMON AMARTH, DEMONS & WIZARDS, ARCH ENEMY, HAMMERFALL, KROKUS, SKID ROW, AT THE GATES, ANNIHILATOR, MAGNUM, JOE LYNN TURNER, ULI JON ROTH,

DEATH ANGEL, DEMON and BEAST IN BLACK.

 

Another 65 acts, including some really strong names, are yet to be announced!

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, November 1st at 11.00 CET.

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.

Annihilator cancels, Unleashed to replace! Unfortunately, Annihilator has had to cancel their show at this year's festival. The band has a new deadline for their coming album and need to focus on the recording. Annihilator will instead be playing at Sweden Rock Festival 2020. Their replacement will be the Swedish death metal legends Unleashed, and this will be the first time in 10 years they play at Sweden Rock. Unleashed will be taking over Annihilators slot; Sweden Stage, 19.15-20.30 on Saturday the 8th of June. UNLEASHED (SE) Unleashed is one of "the big four" in Stockholmian death metal (alongside Entombed, Dismember and Grave), and remain one...

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"...
