Twelve more acts for the 2019 Sweden Rock Festival were revealed this morning! Speaking as an attendee of the event since 2013, Sweden Rock 2019 may just be one of the best lineups yet. For me personally anyway! Here’s the press release announcement translated from Swedish thanks to Google Translate:
