MelodicRockFest Scandinavia 2018

For the first time ever in Scandinavia we present MelodicRock Fest!
 
Three days filled with the finest of AOR and Melodic Rock. Early bird tickets on sale now, artist announcements coming soon!
 
The Early Bird 3-Day Pass for Melodic Rock Fest Scandinavia 2018 grants you access to the whole festival (except V.I.P. area), all three days. A very limited number of tickets at a reduced price, once they're gone, they're gone!
 
 
The festival was founded by Andrew McNeice back in 2007 and in collaboration with Rock Stage Malmo the three day festival now find it's way to SLAGTHUSET, Malmo, Sweden.
 
The former slaughter house "Slagthuset" in Malmo is today one of Scandinavia's most conveniently located event facilities, only 20 minutes from Copenhagen Airport, 2 minutes from Malmo Central Station and 35 minutes from Copenhagen City. The venue is ideal for conferences, expositions, theatrical performances and concerts!
 
For MelodicRock Fest Scandinavia 2018 we will use 3 of the bigger rooms + an outdoor area with a total capacity of 1,500.

MELODICROCK FEST 5 Updates!

MELODICROCK FEST 5 – UPDATES!
 
I know the biggest question going around right now – is WHEN will we hear the MRF5 details?
That’s a VERY good question!
 
I appreciate everyone’s patience. The lengthy process underway right now is necessary and extra special care is being taken to bring the very best possible lineup to both events.
 
I also want to ensure that the lineup announced is the lineup that turns up. Changes are always a risk with long term planning and so many artists, but MRF has a very good reputation for delivering what is promised.
 
Right now I am in the final stages of negotiations with several artists that will complete the lineup of MRF-USA.
 
Likewise for MRF-Scandinavia – but in that situation I’m working with Johan Nylen and the Rock Stage team to finalize all plans there.
 
I can confirm that the Malmo, Sweden event will take place May 31-June 2. That date is FINAL! The venue is booked and will be announced shortly.
 
MRF-USA is of course taking place May 4-6 at the site of MRF3&4 – H.O.M.E Bar Chicago in Arlington Heights.
There will be an event hotel, but don’t book yet…there will be a deal and it may not be the hotel from last time.
 
A couple of points I’d like to make for both shows in general:
- Ticket prices announced will be the same price right up until event weekend.
- There will be VIP options that embrace the whole event experience and once gone, are ALL GONE!
 
MRF-USA is set to feature a mix of classic, cult and new artists, from within the USA and around the world – more international acts than any other show to date!
 
As final details fall into place, at this stage I envision a lineup announcement at the end of this month and tickets on sale a couple of weeks after that.
Stand by for those details….

And yes, I am still happy to hear from potential EVENT SPONSORS or interested advertisers and vendors.

The Return Of MELODICROCKFEST!

 
MelodicRock.com is excited to announce the return of MelodicRockFest for one more round!
 
MRF5 will happen in May 2018
 
Stuck with the problem of deciding between two amazing locations and two amazing venues, with two great partnerships to work with, we've taken the only responsible option - two MelodicRockFest events, back to back!
 
MRF-USA and
MRF-Scandinavia
 
MRF5 will be happening  as usual in the Chicagoland area; and for the very first time is also heading to the other side of the globe, for a special event in Sweden!
 
This initial announcement is being made 14 months out from the events to allow interested fans to plan ahead and save for what will be two unforgettable events.
 
Full lineups for both events are in advanced planning and will be announced in the not too distant future.
 
Both MelodicRockFest events will take place in May 2018 and will feature the best characteristics of previous fests, with a couple of new twists to keep diehard fans happy and offer up some tempting VIP options.
 
MRF organizer Andrew McNeice: "I was initially reluctant to dive into another event, but the partnership offers on both side of the Atlantic give me the confidence and enthusiasm to really deliver two exclusive events. I'm doing this for the fans. The true fans of this small, but amazing genre. I want to put on the two best MRF events yet and discussions with artists I'd love to take part suggest they will be.
I'm going to deliver lineups that offer something you won't get at any other event, with the emphasis on the hottest acts fans in both locations have been demanding to see.
You can expect there to be a crossover of some artists at both events and for those looking for a double holiday, there will be ticketing options that cover both events.
It's also a great opportunity for some artists to perform that wouldn't otherwise get a chance and I'd love to deliver a few surprises from yesteryear that the diehards will embrace."
 
Further details will be announced in coming weeks including locations, exact dates and the all-important lineup and ticketing details.
 
There will be various vendor and sponsor opportunities. If interested, please contact: ajm@melodicrock.com
 
Any other questions, enquiries or comments can also be directed to: ajm@melodicrock.com
