The Darkness and Glenn Hughes confirmed

Nyhetsbrev-och-Hemsidenyhet_1.jpgAnother two acts have been confirmed for this summer's Sweden Rock Festival: The Darkness and Glenn Hughes performs classic Deep Purple.

The Darkness got their somewhat sensational breakthrough with their debut album "Permission to land" and accompanying hit single "I believe in a thing called love". After the 90's, when the general public seemed to shun everything reminiscent of the previous decade like the plague, The Darkness got the world into classic, melodic party friendly hard rock again. Anyone who missed them due to their late set last time they visited Sweden Rock is getting a new chance this summer!

Glenn Hughes became a household name as a member of Deep Purple in the mid 70's. For the first time ever, he will now be playing material exclusively from the three classic Purple albums he participated on: "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come taste the band". A given addition for the festival line-up, of course - not least since Glenn is still singing as amazingly as ever!

Another 10 bands confirmed! Today we are happy to announce another 10 bands confirmed for this summer's festival. The latest additions to the line-up are British heavy metal legends Saxon , the brand new outfit Deadland Ritual - comprised of Geezer Butler (ex-Black Sabbath), Matt Sorum (ex-Guns n' Roses), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) and Franky Perez (Apocalyptica) - rising Polish black metal stars Batushka , Stockholm funk rockers Electric Boys , Blue Öyster Cult/Alice Cooper offspring Blue Coupe , party stoner quartet Royal Republic , pop metal heads Dynazty , the celtic influenced Sir Reg , Canadian rock'n'rollers The Wild! and Italian music university graduates...
