The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Day Four Recap (Feature/Festival Review)

Saturday, June 10, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #4 Not being as young and spry as we used to be, we arose a bit later on Saturday, June 10, 2017, the final day of Sweden Rock. No one seemed overly interested in hotel breakfast (although massive amounts of coffee were put away). Slowly dragging our asses out of the room and to the car, you’d think we were all a hundred years…

My First Time: A SWEDEN ROCK 2017 Retrospective (Blog)

The 2017 SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL – Recap Day 2 (Festival Review/Feature)

Thursday, June 8, 2017 – Sweden Rock Festival 2017 – Day #2 Hotel breakfast and buckets of coffee started Thursday, June 8th. Then it was some confusing shower experiences. No, not like that you perverts! We couldn’t figure out the taps as they possessed no markings whatsoever. And the tub was basically open in the bathroom with only a little shower curtain that didn’t even go half way around. Almost impossible to prevent a bathroom…

T’was The Night Before Sweden Rock…

T’was the night before Sweden Rock and all through the town no one was quiet…certainly not The Meister. Hard to believe that it’s year five! My fifth excursion from Toronto to Solvesborg for Sweden Rock Festival. Perhaps the single greatest music event held on land (nothing beats the floating party that is Monsters of Rock Cruise). Four days, Five stages, over 80 bands, many that will never hit North American soil. Music lovers from around…
