Following the confirmations of Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne and Heavy Load, we are happy to announce another 26 bands for this summer's festival.

 

Judas Priest always rank high on the wish lists of our guests and have played several amazing shows at Sweden Rock since their 2004 reunions tour. Next summer, the heavy metal pioneers return with a brand new album just released.

 

Helloween recently expanded their line-up with their former members Michael Kiske (vocals) and Kai Hansen (vocals and guitar). On December 2nd they play a sold out arena show outside Gothenburg and in June they bring their "Pumpkins United" tour to Sölvesborg.

 

After their post millennium reunion, Stone Sour was, at least for a while, best known as "that other band with Corey Talor from Slipknot". Now they are big enough to sell out big concert halls and count as one of the major names of the metal scene of today.

 

Also confirmed for the festival are Kreator, Tarja, Vixen, Pretty Maids, Doc Holliday, Primordial, Joe Lynn Turner, Suffocation, Nazareth, Rotting Christ, Pop Evil, Nocturnal Rites, The 69 Eyes, Cyhra, Bullet, The Mick Clarke Band, Pist.On, F.K.Ü., Circus Maximus, The Quill, Lugnet, The New Roses and Junkyard Drive.

 

With this, 29 out of a total of 80 acts have been announced. More bands will follow as they get confirmed.

Another six bands confirmed! KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, IN THIS MOMENT, SHOOTER JENNINGS, MADAM X and BRIAN DOWNEY's ALIVE AND DANGEROU S are all confirmed for Sweden Rock Festival 2018. American Killswitch Engage rank among the biggest names in modern metal and are touring as direct support to Iron Maiden in Europe this summer. Naturally, this will also bring them to Sweden Rock! Swedish sleaze kings Hardcore Superstar are known as one of the nation's best live acts. This will come in handy when they get to close this year's opening day festivities on Wednesday June 6th! Also confirmed are contemporary rock/metal act In This...

Wilmer X to make comeback at Sweden Rock Festival Groovy rhythm'n'blues, filthy garage rock, raw blues and sticky pop choruses. That is the foundation on which the career of Swedish rock institution Wilmer X rests. A musical journey that will see its 40th anniversary in 2018. ''We play rock in the most narrow-minded and traditional way possible. It is all we know, and it is all we want to do''. A classic quote by front man Nisse Hellberg that Wilmer X has certainly lived by throughout the years. The band's last concert, seven years ago, was their 999th show ever. Naturally, that's no way to end the count, so in...
