Sweden Rock Festival is a famous rock and metal festival held in Norje, near S?lvesborg, Sweden since 1992. Its focus embraces many styles with some clear domination of classic rock/metal and hard rock bands.

The first festival took place in Olofstr?m on 06.06.1992 with only 9 bands in the line-up (NAZARETH was the headliner) and with the name “Summer Festival”. Being happy with the festival’s success (attendance: 2500 people) the founder Ingolf Persson re-located the event to Karlshamn and called it “Karlshamm Rock Festival”. This Sweden Rock festival’s incarnation was already a 2 day event ans so it went till 1996. In 1996 the audience was so huge (7500 people) that it was clear it was a time to look for a better and bigger place. So in 1998 the festival got its well-known name Sweden Rock Festival and moved to Norje, S?lvesborg. Since that day the event grew up to 3 days and went back to 2 days several times, but as for today it’s 4 day event with over 120 performing acts and the average attendance of 30.000-35.000 people.

Some notable appearances in the past have been AEROSMITH, JUDAS PRIEST, M?TLEY CR?E, DIO, BRUCE DICKINSON, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TWISTED SISTER, WHITESNAKE, URIAH HEEP, EUROPE, DEEP PURPLE, ACCEPT, MOT?RHEAD, SAXON, NAZARETH, POISON, STATUS QUO, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, SCORPIONS, PORCUPINE TREE, KAMELOT, DEF LEPPAD, ALICE COOPER, KING DIAMOND, TESTAMENT, W.A.S.P., ZZ TOP, THIN LIZZY and GUNS’N’ROSES.
