Hello readers! Today we have some great news from Sweden Rock Festival! They listened to your suggestions after the 2019 festival and have made some changes that will affect the 2020 festival. These are just the first announcements, with more to come and remember, tickets for Sweden Rock Festival 2020 go on sale via Ticketmaster.se on November 27th at 11:00AM CET (that is local Sweden time, so verify the time with the world clock and set your alarms). Tickets are sure to sell out in record time again this year!
“With the support from feedback that we get from our guests each year, we make a plan for what needs to be improved in order to make our next festival even better. Some of the planned improvements will need a bit more time before they can be announced, but some are now finished enough for us to share with you.
Larger festival area
The festival audience area will be increased with over 10 000 square meters. In addition, some sections where alot of people pass through will be made wider to minmize the risk of them being too crowded. The number of tickets sold will remain the same as the last few years, so these changes are made only to increase the comfort and well-being of our visitors. Details and a new map will be introduced later on during spring.
Increased capacity in entrances and bars
In order to make the transitions in and out of the festival as smooth and quick as possible, we will increase the capacity and staff in the main entrance. We will also create a larger open space in front of the main entrance.
The capacity in the bars will be increased as well.
Larger selection of food
The number of food stalls will be increased, and the variety of food will be wider.
New wine area
We will add a new wine area, where you will be able to enjoy a good glass of wine and some tasty food, while sitting down with your friends in a cosy environment.
Environmentally friendly disposables
For 2020 we will take our sustainability work a step further, i.e. by making sure all food stalls on the festival area will use environmentally friendly disposables only (instead of plastic ones).
90 bands – and Wednesday is expanded!!!!
For many years now, the first festival day has been half a day, starting at 3 pm with half the area – and only three of five stages – open. This summer we will open the festival gates already at 1 pm on Wednesday, and we will schedule a number of concerts on Rock Stage, meaning that four out of five stages will be open during the first festival day. This, in combination with a few scheduling changes, will mean that the total number of festival acts 2020 are increased from 83 to 90.
More information – and more improvements – will be communicated later on in the season, so stay tuned!”
