Legendary punk band confirmed

sham69_2.jpgSham 69 was formed in Hersham, England back in 1975 and is today one of the big and most legendary punk bands within british working class punk. In their early career they had an audience that created a lot of violence and hooliganism during the bands shows. Today Sham 69 is one of the bands mentioned when you talk about the punk sub genre Oi! From the beginning the band was very much punk only but started slowly to move more towards classic British rock influenced by bands like The Who, Rolling Stones and Mott the Hopple. The sound of Sham 69 was and still is very singalong friendly with bombastic choruses, like football choirs. Listen to classic songs like "Hurry up Harry", "If the kids are United", "Borstal Breakout" and "Hersham Boys" and you will understand! The first period of the band lasted until 1980 and during six years they released four albums. Since their comeback in 1987 they have continued to release albums. As many other bands that are closing in on existing for 50 years, there has been several versions of the band and the last years there have been TWO different bands. But the Sham 69 that will play at Time To Rock is the the real Sham 69, 3/4 of "The original 1977 line-up" consisting of iconic frontman Jimmy Pursey, Dave Parsons (guitar), Dave Tregunna (bass). The band is completed by Robin Guy (drums). This is a show you don't wanna miss!

Sham 69 cancel , Brothers of Metal steps in! Unfortunately, we have to announce that Sham 69 is canceling their gig, as one of the members suddenly fell ill. We know that many people have been looking forward to this gig, but it's obviously nothing we can do about it. They have also promised to try to get Time To Rock into their schedule for the 2024 festival. With such short notice, we obviously can't have time to find another legendary British punk band, but we can in any case proudly present one of Dalarna's biggest, best and toughest bands: BROTHERS OF METAL who came to our rescue and are...

Unique art exhibition at this years festival Antecedent Death Aesthetics Of Mortality - A Death Mask Project By Tom Gabriel Warrior The fury captured in the music by Swiss groups Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, and Triptykon ranks among the most pivotal influences on the extreme, black, gothic, doom and avant- garde metal genres. The common thread linking these bands is founding member and main songwriter, Tom Gabriel Warrior (née Tom Gabriel Fischer, voice/guitars). Concurrently primitive yet curiously intricate, Warrior's compositions evoke stark and compelling vistas reminiscent of writings of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Aleister Crowley, and Charles Baudelaire. Lyrically, Warrior delves into all areas associated with civilizations crumbling...
