The Sweden Rock Festival 2015 – Decibel Geek’s full series of great articles, commentaries and gig reviews.
Once again the Sweden Rock Festival 2015 has been another blistering success! This premier European rock festival began in 1992 and is held at Norje Havsbad, Norje, Sweden, basically in the middle of nowhere between two small towns, Solvesborg and Karlshamn. This, the festival’s 23rd year in operation, was even better than the previous years, showcasing over 90 bands on 5 stages over four days! The bands are represented from many countries from around the globe each year, as are the fans, who travel far and wide to this extremely well organised and run festival event. Over the years, Sweden Rock has been able to present many bands on its stages in forms rarely seen these days or that neither The Lionsheart or The Meister ever thought they would see in a live setting. Some bands that fall into this ilk are this year’s sets from Grim Reaper, Mad Max and Riot V. Sweden Rock also showcases NEMIS bands (New Music In Sweden), with at least five such acts playing the Rockklassiker Stage each year and it’s thanks to this NEMIS program that The Meister discovered bands like Ammotrack (their album made his best of 2013 list) and Beast. Read the articles below to see if he discovered anyone great in 2015. Keep an eye on the Decibel Geek YouTube page as well for videos of the awesome live performances of Sweden Rock Festival 2015. A new video is uploaded every day and the current video playlist appears at the end of this article.
