Rose Tattoo, Body Count, Turbonegro and more confirmed!

News6_nyhet.pngToday, we are happy to announce another 7 bands confirmed for this summer's Sweden Rock Festival.

Rose Tattoo is probably, with the exception of AC/DC, the most successful Australian hard rock band ever, at least outside their homeland. And yet, they rarely come to Europe and even more rarely to Sweden. This summer, however, it is finally time for Angry Anderson and his cohorts to fire away classics like "Nice boys" and "Rock'n'roll outlaw" at the Sweden Rock Festival again!

When hip hop legend and actor Ice-T formed metal band Body Count there were many sceptics, but their eponymous 1992 debut album caused something of a sensation - both thanks to its raw, rap infused metal sound and to the controversy surrounding the song "Cop killer". The band, which has been active on and off since then, recently received a well-received sixth studio outing and this summer they make their first Sweden Rock Festival appearance.

This summer will also see long overdue Sweden Rock debuts from Norwegian rock legends Turbonegro, Welsh reggae metal band Skindred and shred icon Bernie Tormé. Also confirmed for the festival are the classic glam rockers Slade and the brand new metal band The Dark Element, featuring Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) and Jani Liimatainen (ex-Sonata Arctica).


Sweden Rock Festival takes place in Sölvesborg on June 6th-9th. Previously announced acts include Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Helloween, Stone Sour, Heavy Load and Kreator. 3- and 4-day tickets will be made available this coming Friday at 09.00 CET.

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...
