News and updates

Sweden Rock 2019 is rapidly approaching. Our ambition is, of course, to offer this year's visitors a really nice festival experience, with focus on good music, high service and security.


Most things on the festival area will be the same as always, but below you can read about a selection of new additions and upgrades:


- We are increasing capacity and improving the access to toilets. In addition to the large lavatory villages from last year, we are adding two more. One between Rock and Festival Stage, and one by the Sweden-Stage area.


- We are increasing the festival surface by adding a new food area (read the piece of news about The Smoke Pit from a few days ago!), and also increasing the size of the VIP-area.


- The fresh water function in the partner-activity area returns, and we are also adding another fresh-water tap next to the disability ramp. The water posts by the toilets from last year will of course remain as well. 


- 2019 will be the first year when you can pay with your credit card in all of our bars. (But cash is still acceptable if that is your preferred choice.)


- The festival area will offer four Wi-Fi hotspots; one in the main bar, one by the Staropramen bar (sun deck) , one in The Smoke Pit and one the VIP area. 


- The Staropramen bar will get a larger sun deck, and the Brooklyn bar will double in size and move to an area between Festival Stage and the VIP area.


- In the area between Sweden Stage and Rock Stage, we will open a Jacobs-Creek wine bar, offering an organic range of wine by the glass. 


- As always, your safety is at the top of our agenda, and something that we work extra hard with improving each year. One addition we can mention, is that we will this year team the hosts and hostesses patrolling the area with HLR-educated personnel. Each team will also carry a portable defibrillator with them at all times.

The show will be their only in Scandinavia on this tour, and one of only three festival appearances in Europe. Guns N' Roses have remained one of the biggest rock bands in the world since their breakthrough with debut album "Appetite for destruction" (1987). It was followed by the Queen-ishly ambitious album duo "Use your illusion 1 & 2" (1991), taking the band's popularity to even greater heights. "Welcome to the jungle", "Sweet child o' mine", "Paradise city", "Nightrain",...
