rockingham

The third annual Rockingham festival takes place in Nottingham's Trent University from October 20th to 22nd and features a plethora of melodic hard rock bands both old and new.

Headliners for the weekend are veteran US hard rockers Kix whio are making a very rare UK appearance, Vince Neil doing a set including Motley Crue's greatest hits and Canadian AOR legends Loverboy, another band who don't play on this side of the Atlantic very often.

Elsewhere on the bill there are more veterans of the hard rock and AOR scene in John Parr, Harem Scarem, Dare and Great White plus some up and coming stars in Vega and The Amorettes.

Stage times have already been confirmed and can be seen here. Tickets can be ordered from the festival website.

AOR guru Rob Evans gives us the low down of what to expect from the weekend at Rockingham:

"Well here we go for Rockingham three, so get strapped in as this rollercoaster promises to be a thrill a minute ride. Three days, eighteen bands and more melodic rock than you'll find in one place all year as Rockingham returns to Trent University.

"You want big hitters, well step forward Vince Neil, Loverboy, Dave Bickler and Kix, a quartet of bands and artists that would grace any stage. With a supporting cast that includes Harem Scarem and Great White how can you go wrong? Throw in some hot new talent along the lines of Cruzh, Maverick and the Amorettes and all the bases are being covered.

"With a welcome return from Fortune, one of the best bands from last year's festival and a first time appearance from Blanc Faces, you can guarantee that the pure AOR fans will be more than happy.

"With English AOR ably represented by Vega, Bailey, Dare, Moritz and Airrace, this is shaping up to be one of the best Festivals of the year and it's all set to take place over the weekend of 2Oth to 22nd October at Nottingham's Trent University."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
