thank you very much for really great reactions to Tuesday's news about our new project we are currently preparing for you, the ROCK CASTLE festival. Especially at this time, it warmed us up and encouraged us. We feel, that you like this holiday locality MORAVSKÝ KRUMLOV with its chateau. And so perhaps we will make you happy again today with the first confirmed bands for ROCK CASTLE, with a new website and the start of ticket sales at introductory price.
The festival concept is scheduled into three days.
The opening day, Thursday, August 19th, will belong to the Finnish band KORPIKLAANI and their guests. This band, which is one of the best folk-metal bands in the world, is preparing a special "Vodka and Beer opening party" for this festival. The "Korpi" will make you all dancing and jumping up and plan to bring nice guests to their show. At this moment we can confirm that the Moravian folk-rock band FLERET will perform with them as a guest on several songs. On other guests who will help to create an unique experience, we are working.
The second day, Friday, August 20th, will belong to the absolute headliner, the Swedish band SABATON. The band is currently in Sweden and working on some new music and we dare to say that when the Swedish metal tank comes to Krumlov and Rock Castle we will be able to hear some brand new music. As always the band is preparing a very big stage production and we can expect a fantastic show and you will definitively have some "ještě jedno pivo" (one more beer)!
The final day will belong to the German crossover star GUANO APES. In addition to proven hits such as "Open Your Eyes", "Proud Like a God", "Lords of the Boards" and others, the band around the extremely energetic and beautiful Sandra Nasic will also bring a new ammunition to Krumlov in the form of brand new songs.
