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.

A few bus wristbands left If you haven't found accommodation in Norje, but in one of the close by communities, chances are you can take advantage of the shuttle buses to get to and from the festival area. If you are staying all four festival days, it will be both easier and cheaper for you to get a bus wristband, allowing you to travel back and forth as many times as you wish. Read more about the buses, wristbands and which communties are served by the shuttles HERE .

Hackensack cancel show. Replaced by Buckets Rebel Heart. We unfortunately have to tell you that Hackensack are forced to cancel their appearance at the festival, due to illness. They will be replaced by BUCKETS REBEL HEART. Guitarist Dave ''Bucket'' Colwell boasts an impressive pedigree in hard blues rock - including ASAP (Adrian Smith And Project), Humble Pie and not least Bad Company, whose singer Paul Rodgers has complimented him as ''one of the few who can write inspired three-chord songs''. The band will have the same slot as Hackensack had, Saturday June 9th 19.45 - 20.45.
