SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL: 2020 EDITION CANCELLED…

PRESS RELEASE:

In the last few weeks we have been working hard investigating the possibilities to reschedule the 2020 festival from June to the end of the summer. For a while it looked doable, as we received a very positive response to the plan from artists, suppliers and collaborators. However, due to the unprecedented situation it has now become clear that cancelling is unavoidable. Instead we are now focusing our efforts towards 2021.
For many of you, our visitors, Sweden Rock Festival is one of the highlights of the year. The festival is also of great importance to a number of others, such as crew staff, suppliers, partners, associations, camp sites, hotels and more. A lot of people have been working hard for a very long time to prepare for another sold out event. Hence, we put a lot of energy and time into exploring alternative options. We are now taking all that hard work and enthusiasm and putting it towards 9-12 June 2021.
We promise to make next year’s festival the best one ever!

Associations and Sweden Rock heavy metal camp
Sweden Rock Festival has over 3,000 people working for the festival through a number of regional associations (sports clubs and similar). Each association is compensated by them invoicing Sweden Rock a fee based on the number of hours worked. For many of them, this money is the largest revenue post of the year and crucial for their operations. The associations do a fantastic job and their commitment is indispensable for the festival’s existence. We have therefore decided that even though this year’s festival is not taking place, we will pay full association fees to all the associations that we have agreements with and who also have an ongoing member activity all year round.
Together with our partner Studiefrämjandet, we also still aim to put together this year’s “Sweden Rock-kollo” – the summer camp for girls wanting to learn to play metal. However, it will take place at a later date and in accordance with the national health recommendations.
Ticket information
Tickets purchased for Sweden Rock Festival 2020 will now automatically be valid for the 2021 festival, but you will also be offered the option of receiving a refund.
By choosing to hold on to your ticket for 2021, you are helping the festival, and you are also helping us help the associations and the Sweden Rock metal camp. As a thank you for your support you will receive a gift card that gives you SEK 200 to use in our online merch shop.
Look out for an e-mail from Ticketmaster with further ticketing information very soon.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your support and understanding. We have the best audience in the world and we hope to see you all again 9-12 June 2021.

Saints Trade project was born in Bologna in 2009 with a great will to play music and a sheer passion for glorious Hard Rock bands. Soon, the band started composing its own material and performing live around Italy. After some line-up changes throughout the years, the band got the great opportunity to play at Fleetwoodstock Festival (Fleetwood, UK) in November 2011, as opening act for famous British hard-rockers Ten. The enthusiastic response of the audience to the songs gave Saints Trade an encouragement to enter the studio in April 2012 and record “A Matter Of Dreams”, their first mini-album produced by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, Alchemy, Michele Luppi) at his Pri Studio. In early 2013, Saints Trade presented the official video for the song “Face In The Mirror” and opened for British rockers Jettblack in Bologna. Once again, the positive audience response gave the guys a good reason to re-enter the studio. Saints Trade and Roberto Priori got to team up in June 2014, giving birth to Saints Trade’s first full-length album called “Robbed In Paradise”. The album features various special guests – Roberto Priori himself, the talented keyboard player Pier Mazzini (Danger Zone, Perfect View) and the virtuoso Tommy Denander (Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper, Robin Beck, House Of Lords). In November, the signing for the Italian label Logic Il Logic Records set forth a new chapter of Saints Trade‘s career. In 2017, the band started writing some new stuff. In March 2019 Saints Trade, now a three piece formed by Santi Libra (vocals), Claus (guitar) and Andrea Sangermano (bass), joined Roberto Priori in his studio once again to record their new album “Time To Be Heroes”, expected for a late year release by Art of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. Now the band is ready to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Further details about tracklist, cover artwork, official release date and first single “Higher” will follow shortly.
