We are happy to finally be able to announce the last 13 bands for this year's Sweden Rock Festival, making the full 82-band line-up complete.

 

Swedene Rock final

 

Guitar wunderkind Michael Schenker started his career in Scorpions and UFO before forming his own band MSG. This summer, he makes a very special appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival: under the new moniker Michael Schenker Fest, he will be joined by no less than 3 legendary MSG singers - Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley - to perform MSG classics from albums like "Michael Schenker Group", "Assault Attack" and "Save Yourself". This will be the only Michael Schenker Fest concert in Scandinavia, and the only in Europe featuring all 3 singers.

 

The US based Symphony X rank among the world's leading progressive metal acts. Their current European tour for the outstanding "Underworld" album does not reach Sweden, but the band will make up for it by coming to the Sweden Rock Festival this summer.



Also confirmed is guitar hero supreme and Sweden Rock debutant Steve Vai as well as hard rock pioneers Vanilla Fudge, who still have three members from their 1967 debut album in the band, and the groundbreaking, Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, who will bring back their former vocalist Maniac for an Scandinavian-exclusive one-off appearance at Sweden Rock.

 

We are delighted to also be able to welcome space rockers Hawkwind, power metal heroes Gamma Ray, prog super trio The Winery Dogs, Swedish death metal icons Entombed AD, the new and smoking hot pub rock band The Temperance Movement, heavy metal cult band Slough Feg, Canadian heavy rockers Monster Truck and returning Sweden Rock crowd pleasers Rockklassiker All-Stars.
