Sweden Rocks tour
For those who like their rock Scandinavian-style, this trio of groups on stage will make their night. H.E.A.T., The Poodles and Treat each play a set on the Sala Salamandra stage.
Melodic rock band Treat have been around since the late Eighties, taking part in Monsters of Rock in 1988 and opening for both Queen and W.A.S.P. when they toured in Sweden. After taking a break, the group returned in 2005 with a 'best of'-style album as well as new material. This year sees them release a new album, Coup de Grace.
The Poodles are a glam metal band formed in 2006 by a group of musicians with much industry experience behind them - in 2006, the group hit the heights of kitsch music, making it to the finals of Sweden's Eurovision competition. Their latest album was produced last year, Clash of the Elements.
H.E.A.T. was a group created in 2007, born in the same town as one of Sweden's biggest rock stars Europe, combining two bands (Trading Fate and Dream) into one. They also have a new album coming out this year, Freedom Rock, due for release in May.
