silja rock

Mighty British road warriors Saxon have been confirmed as Silja Rock 2017 headliners which takes place on May 12th for a full forty hours of live music between Stockholm and Helsinki.

Now if that sounds a little unusual, Silja Rock is like a rock festival but on a ship. As with any festival it has several stages featuring headlining acts and supports. The music is pretty much non-stop, a forty hour trip to Finland and back with at least twenty hours of it covered by some great rock acts and the rest of the time covered by DJ acts in three venues around the ship.

Also on the bill are The Answer, Massive Wagons and Allegiance Of Rock who boast Gus G, John Leven, Anders Johansson and Mats Leven. Skinny Molly, ArtNation, Bulletrain and more are also on the bill.

The journey begins officially when the boat leaves the dock at 4.45pm from Stockholm, Sweden.

Silja Rock organisers told us:

"What makes us the best rock boat on the waves? The selection of music, that's what. We carefully mix and match our acts so that all of our more than 2,500 guests on board will receive at least more than just a few acts that they can really absorb. Metal, Gothic Rock, Folk Rock, Glam Rock, Arena Rock, Rock Bacon and a little disco.

"This gives us a broad, happy, friendly, loving audience that goes beyond everything else on the Swedish live music scene. This is the 'secret sauce' that makes Silja Rock what it is today."
