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.
