We are now finally able to announce the first six bands that have been confirmed for the 2010 edition of Sweden Rock Festival.

We are proud to present Randy Bachman and Fred Turner, will be performing together for the first time in 19 years and make their first festival appearance at Sweden Rock Festival. With songs like "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" and "Taking Care of Business" in their catalogue and all the way from Canada: BACHMAN & TURNER. The concert will be their only in Scandinavia.

Fellow Canadians and progressive melodic rockers SAGA will make their Sweden Rock Festival debut next summer. As will Atlanta, Georgia based kings (and queen) of funk rock, MOTHER'S FINEST.

Fans of melodic metal have waited long to see former Helloween singer Michael Kiske on stage. Next year's Sweden Rock Festival will see the first live performance by the legendary singer in 16 years when he takes the stage with his new band UNISONIC. The group, which also features musicians known from Pink Cream 69 and Krokus, will be playing their own melodic hard rock originals as well as a few Helloween classics.

From Norway comes one of the greatest voices in rock history, JORN, and last but not least Americans BIGELF will return to Sweden Rock after nine long years to deliver their unique brand of doomy, Beatles-influenced progressive rock.

More bands will be presented on Friday, so keep your eyes open! We have a lot of good things in the pipeline waiting to be confirmed and more than 50 bands left to announce!
