Symphonic metal group NIGHTWISH is the headlining act for Qstock festival Friday in the summer of 2021. The band released their ninth studio album in April this year and are scheduled to embark on a world tour in September.
Other confirmed acts for Qstock 2021 so far include JVG, THE DARKNESS (UK), SANNI, BATTLE BEAST, KAIJA KOO, STAM1NA, ELLINOORA, CHISU, VESALA, IDA PAUL & KALLE LINDROTH, LÄHIÖBOTOX, JC STEWART (UK), MIKAEL GABRIEL, RADIOPUHELIMET, XYSMA and CLEDOS.
The outset for building the line-up for summer 2021 was a peculiar one. In the midst of show cancellations and postponements on a global scale, it is reassuring to be able to confirm an act of Nightwish’s magnitude for our Friday bill. Our programme is forming into a solid and versatile one, for we are combining household favourites confirmed for this summer with next summer’s hot names when booking the acts. Without forgetting Qstock-style surprises!Sandy Kantola – Qstock promoter
