Within Temptation and Saxon amongst first bands announced for Jailbreak Festival 2023

JAILBREAK will be expanded to a 2-day festival in 2023, when the PRISON in Horsens once again puts up walls for the big heavy rock festival next year – WITHIN TEMPTATION, SAXON, MIKE TRAMP – SONGS OF WHITE LION, SKAGARACK and TIMECHILD have been announced as the first bands.

Jutland’s new rock and metal event is returning – this time as a full-on festival, where guests can experience lots of heavy rock on the stages and an inch-thick atmosphere in the PRISON in Horsens over two whole days.

In August this year, we presented JAILBREAK for the first time and really established that Horsens is a heavy city. 3,000 guests experienced the fantastic international and Danish bands, rappelling from the height of the fourth floor, escape from the cells and an atmosphere that threatened to topple the thick prison walls.

Festival organisers are very proud to be able to present the same again in 2023, only with much more heaviness, even more activities and the same fabulous atmosphere! On the 11th – 12th August 2023, we will open the gates to the PRISON with a larger selection on all shelves, both musically and gastronomically – a selection that really offers the opportunity to escape from the everyday cage prison.

JAILBREAK offers a wide range of bands in 2023, all of which have the great and legendary riffs in common. There are serious plans for a real rehabilitation party, when the PRISON is filled with the sounds of, among other things, magnificent symphonic metal from Dutch band WITHIN TEMPTATION, old school heavy metal from the UK from SAXON, a string of good old glam metal hits from the genre’s heyday from MIKE TRAMP’s WHITE LION, classic Danish rock at a high technical level from SKAGARACK and heavy, melodic rock from the young, ambitious band TIMECHILD. Look forward to hearing all these (and many more) bands rock the dungeon next year!

Heavy audiences and PRISON are made for each other, and after a terrific JAILBREAK debut this year, we really got our teeth into creating an even bigger and better experience for the JAILBREAK guests in 2023, who will be on lots of experiences, atmosphere and – not least – the good, hard thread! We are very much looking forward to seeing the audience in August
