Manowar's Joey DeMaio appears to have solved the problems that were engulfing the Getaway Rock Festival last month.
Apparently, employees and local suppliers have not been paid for their work during the festival and Festival General Tomas Jernberg Speed had threatened not to pay those who turn to the media. This prompted Joey to fly to Sweden to sort the while mess and get the festival back on track.

A statement from Magic CIrce Records has just been released which states; "Joey had successful meetings with Live Nation Sweden and the new owners of Getaway Rock Festival, FKP Scorpio: Everything is fine for Getaway Rock Festival 2012 and for MANOWAR's headlining performance."
And Joey also made the following post on Facebook on Thursday; "This is Joey. Just left Sweden. Everything is okay! Getaway Rock Festival will be happening with MANOWAR and HOLYHELL next year! Get your seatbelts on. More news will follow soon! - Joey"
