One of the progressive rock’s biggest bands now exists in two editions. Yes featuring ARW, coming to Sweden Rock this summer, is centered around the original singer Jon Anderson, guitarist Trevor Rabin, who was behind the super-hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart” and the band’s classic keyboardist Rick Wakeman. “The definitive lineup of the greatest band in the history of progressive rock,” as they themselves express.
Klara for the summer festival is also Graveyard, Pain, Steelheart, H.E.A.T., Girlschool, Inglorious, Avatarium, Sky High, Hackensack, Electric Mary and Crazy Lixx.
We’re now closing in on a full line-up, which this year means a total of 82 bands! Unfortunately, we need to inform you that both Shooter Jennings and Pop Evil have canceled their gigs at Sweden Rock, which leaves another 10 acts to be announced after today.
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.
