Some of the improvements for 2019

One of the goals for the Sweden Rock management team is to continuously develop and improve the festival for each year. Hence, in the beginning of October we gathered a number of key persons from our organization for the yearly evaluation conference. With the support of all the input and feedback from you, our guests, we discussed how the 2018 festival turned out, and what we can be improved for next year.

 

A lot of work remains and some things need more time before they can be announced, but some of the improvements for 2019 are now "finished enough" for us to present.

 

The one most criticized thing this year was the toilets, which had been centralized to two main station areas. As requested, we are now changing back the number of toilet stations from two to four, spread out over the festival area.

In order to minimize the risk of toilet-line build-ups, we will also improve the entrance- and exit logistics for each of the toilet-station areas.

 

We are also adding a water-flushing toilet next to the ramp for disabled.

 

To make sure that drinking-water stations do not to add to the toilet lines, we will move the fresh-water stations out of the toilet areas.

 

In addition, we will increase the total number of fresh-water drinking stations, as well as improve the visibility and signage for them, so that everyone gets better access to free water.

 

Other improvements we can mention at this point:
• In order ease the coming and going for taxis, we will improve taxi-area entry.
• We will increase the number of units where you can use credit cards as paying method.
• We will introduce a new food area, and work to offer an even larger range of foods than before.

 

More information about these and other improvements will come, so keep a look out!

 

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...

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"...
