Egyptian female fronted hardcore metal band MASCARA has been confirmed to play on the third day of Sweden rock festival alongside internationally recognized metal names. The festival will take place on June 3 -6, 2009.
Quoting the organizers of Sweden Rock Fest:
"This may be one of the most exotic bands that will ever enter a stage during Sweden Rock Festival. Mascara is the first female hard rock band ever to come from Egypt, and they will now make their first appearance in Europe. Their music is a fusion of the West's heavy metal and the East's lovely melodies, where distorted guitars meets beautiful violins. The band won three prices during the 2006 International Music Competition."
Sweden Rock Festival started 1992 in a small town in Sweden called Olofström, and has since then grown bigger and bigger. The festival had 29,000 people in attendance in the year of 2007. Nowadays, the festival is located in Norje (Sölvesborg), in the southern parts of Sweden and is now one of the most important festivals in Europe and the biggest one in Sweden.
