Rock Stage is now Lemmy Stage

lemmy_0.jpgMotörhead remain one of the most important and iconic bands in rock history. They played Sweden Rock Festival no less than eight times and have sometimes been referred to as the "house band" of the festival. Many of us in the festival management team got to know front man Lemmy Kilmister, his band mates and their crew personally over the years and it was with great sadness we learned of Lemmy's passing in December.
To honour his memory, we are changing the name of the stage where Motörhead always played when they were in Sölvesborg. With the blessings of surviving Motörhead members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee as well as the band's management, the stage that until now has been known as Rock Stage will this summer be called Lemmy Stage.

Since Lemmy's passing, Phil and Mikkey have urged Motörhead fans to celebrate his life by enjoying his music and raising a glass in his honour instead of mourning. Although everyone working with the festival will have to hold off the glass-raising until after the festival weekend, we think this is an excellent idea, so we will be showing Motörhead and Lemmy clips on the Lemmy Stage video screens between concerts throughout the festival.
As we wrote in December: rest in peace, Lemmy. And thanks for everything.

The Darkness and Glenn Hughes confirmed Another 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...
