Today we can present an additional 7 bands to the summer’s Sweden Rock Festival.
Rose Tattoo is probably the hard Australian rock band next to AC/DC has managed best outside of home. Nevertheless, they are rarely in Europe and even more rarely in Sweden, but this summer it’s finally time for Angry Anderson and his men to tear off classics like “Nice Boys” and “Rock’n’roll Outlaw” at the Sweden Rock Festival again!
When the hip-hop legend and actor Ice-T formed the Body Count metal band, many were skeptical, but the self-titled debut album from 1992 became something of a sensation – both thanks to its raw metal with rap and the controversy surrounding the song “Cop Killer”. The band has been sporadically active since then but recently came the sixth album and this summer they are making the SRF debut.
The long-awaited Sweden Rock debut also features the Norwegian rock legend Turbonegro, the Welsh reggae-metal band Skindred and the shred icon Bernie Tormé. Klara for the festival is also the super classical Glamrock band Slade and the brand new melodious metal band The Dark Element, including Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) and Jani Liimatainen (ex-Sonata Arctica) in the set-up.
The Sweden Rock Festival is held in Solvesborg on 6-9 June. Previously, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Helloween, Stone Sour, Heavy Load, and Kreator have been announced.
The 3- and 4-day tickets are now released on Friday at 09.00.
