In the midst of August it was again time for the annual Malmo city festival festival in downtown Malmo. As always, the festival is free and includes live shows by both native and foreign acts, happenings, food, exhibitions, and lots more. It takes place during one week and the city is crowded with people from Friday to Friday. Since my main target is hard rock and metal music, I attended the Rock Stage where both Swedish and a few foreign acts performed during the week.

Besides music you could also eat, meet people, listen to the DJ’s and have a beer or few. If you what to read more about the festival, look at past reviews in our archives. Since the organizers of the festival are pretty bad at booking harder acts to the bigger stages, a few dedicated souls decided to form the Rock Stage and it has been a success ever since the birth of this Stage three years ago. The hardest band that the main organizers booked to the festival’s Grand Stage was the excellent Swedish, but not hardrock nor metal, but the punk/garage band The Hives. Luckily metal and hardrock fans could turn to Rock Stage to get their dose of harder music.
