in flames

Gothenburg legends In Flames just finished the last shows of their extensive co-headline arena tour with Five Finger Death Punch and will now hold their very own two-day festival called Borgholm Brinner, which translates to Borgholm is Burning.

The festival will be held at the infamous Borgholm Castle of Eastern Sweden's island of Öland. Each evening, In Flames will perform an exclusive headline set after a line-up of around five bands - soon to be announced.

The dates to remember are Friday 27th July and Saturday 28th July. Borgholm Brinner allows fans to be part of a milestone in the band's history - an exclusive weekend filled with the best food and drinks (including Anders Fridén and Björn Gelotte's beer brand, Frequency Beer Works and an exclusive batch of In Flames Gin), fantastic bands and a few more surprises in an intimate setting.

Singer Anders Fridén states:

"I think every band dreams of being able to do this one day – at least for us it's always been in the back of our minds and right now feels like the best time to do it. Whether or not it's putting on your own festival, it's an indescribable feeling to have created a community from your music, and even crazier to have the ability bring that community together in a physical place – playing and enjoying music together, drinking together etc.

"And in a castle of all places. That's another thing. It wouldn't be an In Flames festival if it were just happening on a plot of dirt. It's got to be special so our fans can have the ultimate experience, so we can pay them back for being so great to us for twenty years with an awesome weekend they'll never forget. We've also hand picked the best bands for everyone to enjoy and although we can't say who's playing yet, we can promise there will be no disappointments."

In Flames recently released a digital EP 'Down, Wicked & No Good' featuring cover versions of Depeche Mode's 'It's No Good', Alice In Chains' 'Down In A Hole', Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game', and a live version of Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt'.

Due to high demand from the Jesterheads, the songs will now be released as a 10" mini LP on March 16th 2018 - available as both Light Blue and Light Blue/Black Splatter Vinyl 10".
