More bands confirmed!

släpp 2 2020Another 21 of the 90 acts that will be performing at the Sweden Rock Festival this summer are now confirmed: In Flames, Social Distortion, Within Temptation, Saga, Kvelertak, Trouble, Walter Trout, Haken, Orange Goblin, Victory, Månegarm, Praying Mantis, Satan Takes A Holiday, The Coffinshakers, Narnia, Art Nation, Magic Pie, Horisont, Overdrive, Siena Root and VA Rocks.

In Flames have had a successful year, getting praise for both their new album "I, the mask", and their new rhythm section, which has been called the bands' best ever. No expenses will be spared when one of Swedens' biggest metal bands go "all-in" upon their return to Sweden Rock in June.

Social Distortion is generally categorized as a punk rock band but considering their rock and blues influences, their wide appeal and the fact that they have been one of the biggest names in the genre since the early 90's, their Sweden Rock debut is long overdue. Now, finally, the time has come!

After this announcement, another 38 acts remain to be presented. In just a few days, we will announce one more band, so keep a look out...
