With a spectacular bill full of legends and unique occasions such as KISS farewell show in Spain, the return and goodbye of LYNYRD SKYNYRD, the momentous 50th anniversary by JUDAS PRIEST, the only Spanish show by ACCEPT and the impressive concerts by AMON AMARTH and NIGHTWISH, Rock Fest Barcelona is now adding seven new bands.
An old friend, PHIL CAMPBELL, will be coming to the festival with a special Motörhead concert set, a band that has always been special to us -there is a giant inflatable ‘snaggletooth’ at the festival and our infamous ‘Motörtent’ to pay tribute to Lemmy every year. Now PHIL CAMPBELL and his special Motörhead set will make sure that Rock Fest Barcelona keeps alive the legacy of rock and roll’s most tremendous and feared threesome.
American masters of prog metal SYMPONY X will be also joining the bill, one of the most asked for bands by the audience at the festival. With a 25th anniversary tour underway, the band led by Michael Romeo and Russell Allen will be coming to the festival for the first time ever with a setlist full of classics.
British power metal act DRAGONFORCE will also be coming to the festival again with their unique brand of metal full of melody, speed and imagination. With their new record “Extreme Power Metal” as a sort of declaration of intentions, the band led by guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman will push us to the limit.
Aside from Phil Campbell’s rock and roll, Symphony X’s brand of prog and Dragonforce’s power metal, the festival will also keep space for a legendary stoner and heavy metal band such as brits ORANGE GOBLIN, also on their first time at Rock Fest Barcelona. Also INSOMNIUM and their melodic death metal will be joining and mesmerizing the audience. The confirmations are completed by Northern Ireland’s STORMZONE and the live party that is CELTICA, the bagpipin’ rockin’ band that will make Can Zam jump like there is no tomorrow.
