Hasse Bruniusson Presents The Music Of Samla Mammas Manna, in a new guise, but with the same crazy overtones and humour.
Drummer Hasse brings:
Roine Stolt - Guitar (Kaipa Da Capo, Flower Kings)
Rikard Sjöblom - Keybords (Accordion, Beardfish, Big Big Train)
Håkan Almqvist -Bass (Ensemble Nimbus, Orient Squeezers)
Samla Mammas Manna's music is mostly instrumental and characterized by playful compositions and improvisations
with unusual keyboard playing and complex
drumming in the foreground.
The music is strongly influenced by jazz rock, with similarities
to Frank Zappa, mixed with elements of Swedish folk music.
The music is performed with a lot of humour!
Norwegian band Høst was formed in 1971. They play classic progressive rock with double guitars, enhanced by keyboard that will undoubtedly get Slottskogen reeling.
Geir Jahren - Lead Vocals
Bernt Bodal - Bass
Knut R. Lie - Drums, Backing Vocals
Svein Rønning - Guitar, Backing Vocals
Lasse Nilsen - Guitar
Stockholm band Structural Disorder is dynamic as well as emotional. This progressive metal band with accordion will undoubtedly be the festival's harshest element!
Markus Tälth – Vocals, guitars
Johannes West – Accordeon, vocals
Hjalmar Birgersson – Guitars, piano, keyboards, vocals
Erik Arkö – Bass, vocals
Karl Björk – Drums
Norwegian instrumental band Pymlico is characterized by grand arrangements and melodic versatility. A fine blend of
progressive rock and fusion. Prepare yourself for a thick wall of guitars and keyboards.
Arild - Drums
Øyvind - Keyboards
Marie - Saxophone and keyboards
Stephan - Guitars
Axel - Bass guitar and synth bass
Khadavra, a band originating in the Värmland forests, relies on feelings and intuition for guidance. The roots are 70's
Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and King Crimson, although mixed freely with things such as Wagner, Slowdive, Opeth and Tool. Melancholy is the keyword, as inspiration comes from
experiences, positive and negative; some experiences real, other experiences unreal.
Alex - Trummor, slagverk, sång
Jón - Bas, valthorn, sång
Nils - Keyboards, gitarr, sång
Seb - Gitarr, sitar, didgeridoo, sång
Garfs garden gnomes are back! During intermissions they play their interpretations of Frank Zappa on two acoustic guitars. Maybe some surprises, too!
According to their Facebook webpage:
Two accoustic guitars, two voices. Good shit!
Magnus Liljeqvist - Guitar and vocals.
Niklas Lychou - Guitar and vocals.
FZ- spirit and inspiration.
