W.A.S.P. – American band W.A.S.P. and their iconic frontman Blackie Lawless has sold more than twelve million albums.

Dalton – Together with bands like Europe and Treat, for a few years in the late 80´s, Dalton was a force to be reckoned with in Sweden. The band was killed by grunge, a destiny shared by so many other bands, but are back stronger than ever.
 
Väsby Rock Allstars – our own Allstar band with Bosse Zinny Stagman (Shotgun, Easy Action) as the leader. They will perform a number of classic rock songs and will be joined by a bunch of famous guests. You’d better not miss this since you never know who´s gonna show up on stage.

RATED X Added To Vasby Rock Festival

VASBY ROCK FESTIVAL is extremely proud to announce that Rated X are coming to Väsby Rock Festival.
 
All Star Hard Rock Line Up Includes Vocalist Joe Lynn Turner; Drummer Carmine Appice; Bassist Tony Franklin and Guitarist Karl Cochran.
 
RATED X was formed at the suggestion of Frontiers President Serafino Perugino, who mentioned to singer Joe Lynn Turner that a band of highest caliber musicians should be assembled to create an album of Classic Hard Rock music. Turner, the former lead vocalist for both Rainbow and Deep Purple and a solo artist in his own right, agreed, and the search for the right players was on. Carmine Appice, who already had a relationship with Frontiers, was on board immediately. A true percussion icon, Appice’s resume is one that
Rock legends are made of: Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Blue Murder, King Kobra and others.
 
Appice’s former Blue Murder bandmate and bassist, Tony Franklin (best known for his work with The Firm, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour, Kate Bush, and Whitesnake), signed up next. After a lengthy search for the right guitarist, they settled on long-time Turner collaborator Karl Cochran, who has also worked with Ace Frehley, and worked in the past with Joe Lynn Turner on his solo albums.
 
-We know this is going to be an awesome band to see on stage at Väsby Rock Festival next summer. So many great members with such a resume, it’s an all star line-up, says Väsby Rock Crew.
Rated X will be playing songs from their new album, but also take us back through the memory lane with some of their old classic rock songs.
