In addition to an already blistering lineup, Sweden Rock reveals two more. Just announced early this morning as joining the already massive band list at Sweden Rock 2018 are The Darkness and Glenn Hughes.
Here’s the official announcement translated from Swedish via Google Translate:
Two new acts are now confirmed for the Sweden Rock Festival: The Darkness and Glenn Hughes performs classic Deep Purple.
The Darkness got a slight sensational breakthrough with the debut album Permission to Land and the hit song “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” in 2003. After the 90’s where everything that recalled the previous decade was protected as the plague got the world to dig classically, melodic party hard rock again. Many missed them due to the late playtime last time they were on Sweden Rock. Now they will return for an afternoon show!
Glenn Hughes broke through wide front thanks to his time in Deep Purple in the 70’s. Now, for the first time, he is using material exclusively from the three classic Purple albums he participated in: Burn, Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band. A given booking to the festival is understood. Especially given that Glenn, as others in his generation, has his voice resources completely intact!
Sweden Rock Festival is held in Solvesborg 6-9 June. Previously, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Helloween and Stone Sour have been announced. The 3 and 4-day tickets are sold out. 1-day tickets are released tomorrow, 25/1, at 10.00.
Sweden Rock is Scandinavia’s biggest hard rock festival. Every year, visitors from around 50 countries are attracted to Sölvesborg, where they are invited to over 80 concerts in a mix of classical rock, hard rock, southern rock and metal. Sweden Rock is renowned for keeping a high level of service, and the friendly atmosphere has become one of the festival’s main signatures. In addition to the annual festival, Sweden Rock now has a magazine, beverages and lifestyle products gathered under its brand.
