Three days of the finest melodic hard rock from around the world:
Pretty Maids, Vixen, Ammunition, Ted Poley & Tokyo Motor Fist, Bigfoot, Nelson Band, and many more
When you get the front man from WIG WAM and the front man from Eclipse (Sweden) in a band, on a stage (and ready to rock!), do you think
it could get a little bit explosive? Damn right it will, in a Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza kinda way. The last time they played this country they took the roof off, so bring an umbrella as this year will be no different. Please welcome our eleventh band - AMMUNITION
Ammunition was founded in 2014 by the songwriting duo Age Sten Nilsen (former WIG WAM) and the multi-talented Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse, W.E.T.,Nordic Union). They released their debut album, "Shanghaied", in 2015 on their own label, receiving fantastic reviews all over. Teaming up with former TNT and Jack In The Box bassist Victor Cito Borge, keysman Lasse Finbråten (Circus Maximus), skinsman Magnus Ulfstedt (Eclipse), and the exceptional guitar player Jon Pettersen, Ammunition has made a name for themselves as an incredible live act.
January 26th the scandinavian "supergroup" returned with their second album "AMMUNITION" through Frontiers Music. The first taste of the album was released earlier in 2017. "Wrecking Crew" (written by Nilsen and Mårtensson) landed on top of the Norwegian charts, taking AMMUNITION to the Norwegian Eurovision Grand Finale where they reached an astonishing second place. Their self-titled album is receiving top scores in every corner of the world as the band prepares their TEAR YOUR CITY DOWN TOUR 2018, that kicks off in Barcelona March 21.
