    Default Why?....

    Does Sweden get all the good festival shows? Just ran across this one...my god.

    SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL
    Featuring:

    Motley Crue
    Sammy Hagar and the Waboritas
    Dream Theater
    Motorhead
    Anthrax
    Dio
    Kansas
    Yngwie Malmsteen
    Black Label Society
    Megadeth
    Sebastian Bach
    ...and more

    MORE! How can you get more in there?!

    Why does the US never have one shot festivals like this? It sucks.

    How often do those bands individually swing through Sweden?

    I saw Van Halen 4 times last year, how many times did Sweden?


    All day festivals aren't really that great IMO, I'd rather see some of those bands individually....

    I'll second that. I hate the all day festivals. By the time the headliner (who you really want to see) takes the stage, you're spent. At least that was my experience with the Monsters of Rock. Whole lotta sitting out in the sun. Now, if there's a music fest I want to go to (usually radio stations put them on these days) I just show up in time to catch the last 2 or 3 bands.
    The only adventures I regret
    are the ones I missed,

    I completely agree, last festival I went to was Summer Sanitarium in Chicago two summers ago and it was awful. There were only two bands on the bill I wanted to see, and by the time Metallica came out at the end I was dying to leave. Outside, 95 degrees, and standing crammed against someone all day. I left at 7am, and got home at 3:30 am the next day. I couldn't even take a piss. All the way up in the front and afraid to lose my spot, so I stayed all day. It ruined festival concerts for me. I'm desperate to go see Megadeth this summer since it may be the end Dave says, but he's claiming they are headlining their own festival type thing, and there is no way in hell I'm gonna waste a whole day listening to shitty new metal bands to get to Megadeth!
