Major rock/metal festival updates coming soon!

This is a great time of year to be a hard rock/metal fan because all of the big summer festivals are starting to release their lineups.

Sweden Rock will be announcing more bands this week, and that is one festival we hope to attend this year for the first time.

Rocklahoma just announced Nelson (give them a chance!) and Great White to go along with the already-announced Keel and Kix. We hope to hit that show for a second time this July.

And Donington/Download will announce their third headliner in a few days.

Of course, there are many more great festivals taking place this year (especially in Europe) but these are the three we're focusing on, hoepfully we will be able to attend at least two of these three. If not, there's also Rock Gone Wild, Texas Rock Fest, and a couple of other options in Europe.

Well, the first Download announcement was today, and ZZ Top still hasn't been formally announced. We think it will still happen but as always, we'll believe it when we see it. has listed a new date for Prague on May 26, so hopefully the rest of this summer European tour will be leaking out soon.
