Barcelona Rock Fest is relatively new but festival has quickly developed into international music event. Since its first edition, it attracts not only Spanish heavy music maniacs, but also fans from all over the Europe. Considering festival’s location (Parc de Can Zam in Barcelona), participation doesn’t require complicated planning, because you can get there by public transport. Moreover, location and holiday atmosphere of Barcelona is an additional bonus, as you can combine travel to Rock Fest with city sightseeing and sea bathing 🙂
Barcelona Rock Fest had its debut in the beginning of July 2014 with audience of almost 12 000 music fans. Despite it was the first edition of festival, line-up was very impressing with Manowar and Twisted Sister as headliners and other bands such as Sabaton, Kreator, Gamma Ray, Stratovarious and some more. Next editions took place in the end of July of 2015 with Scorpions, Judas Priest, Europe, Status Quo, Twister Sister, W.A.S.P, Helloween and in the mid July of 2016 with Iron Maiden as a headliner plus King Diamond, Whitesnake, Slayer and many more.
This year’s edition of Barcelona Rock Fest takes place on June 30th, July 1st and 2nd with Aerosmith, W.A.S.P and Alice Cooper. Additionally, fans will have opportunity to see Europe, Airbourne, Running Wild, Avantasia, Saxon, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, Black Star Riders, Hammerfall, Queensryche and maaany more…Sounds exciting, right? 🙂
