22nd March 2012

rival sons



Californian blues-rockers Rival Sons have confirmed a number of European festival appearances for this summer.

The band, who are currently on a sold out tour in the UK with Black Stone Cherry before heading to mainland Europe for a run of headlining shows, are among the latest groups to be confirmed for the Sweden Rock, Pinkpop (Netherlands), Ruisrock (Finland), Rock am Ring and Rock im Park (Germany) festivals.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday comments: "Last summer we hit a pretty good amount of festivals through the UK and Europe, but after the last tour through Europe - receiving such a great response, and support from our fans - we worked really hard to get back out for these festivals... So, this summer we are attempting to fit twice as many in!

"Thus far we have been able to announce: Pinkpop - Netherlands, Sweden Rock, Rock am Ring/Rock im Park - Germany, as well as Ruisrock in Finland. For our fans in the rest of the world, don't worry! There are a ton more festival dates that we will announce as they grow closer.

"As far as the dates already mentioned, we couldn't be more stoked to play these killer festivals in some of our favorite countries. Additionally, you can bet your bottom dollar we'll be following these shows up with a ton of headlining dates, running right up to the release of our new record. Stay tuned, as we're staying very busy."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
