The ROCKAVARIA festival, taking place from May 27 to 29 at the Munich Olympic Park, is coming together. A total of ten further bands have been confirmed. The running order has already been set with specific showtimes for both of the stadium main stages and the lake stage.
There are fresh confirmations from high-flyers BEYOND THE BLACK, German rockers BETONTOD, Islandic atmo-metalheads SOLSTAFIR, their proudly alternative compatriots AGENT FRESCO, not to mention MOTHER’S CAKE, KANZLER & SÖHNE, THE CHARM THE FURY, IRON WALRUS, INTER ARMA, and Rockavaria Band Contest winners RESIST THE OCEAN.
With this lineup, the Olympic grounds are primed to see another pilgrimage of diehard rock and metal fans. With BEYOND THE BLACK, the organizers have landed another big name. The symphonic metal band, fronted by Jennifer Haben, is breaking all the records—top 4 on the charts for their latest album, a Metal Hammer award for best debut in 2015, radio playlists, and TV appearances. The band just dropped another huge hit with their new single “Lost in Forever.”
MOTHER’S CAKE, an Austrian progressive group, completes the lineup. As an opener for several LIMP BIZKIT shows, they’ve already raised a furor and rallied an ever-expanding flock of Instagram followers. As well as international icons on the scene, the festival showcases a core group of the most talented, up-and-coming young bands in all strains of metal. The newly built lake stage will be loaded with back-to-back, not-to-be-missed discoveries. Rockavaria is all about promoting young bands and presenting what’s just starting to brew in the scene.
