Still thankful for the amazing reception that Rock Imperium Festival 2022 had, bringing more than 40000 people to the city of Cartagena during the past June, we have the huge pleasure of announcing that the festival grows, and it grows with all of you. The audience is the one who makes adventures like this possible, even more so as it emerged during extremely uncertain times and, because of that, we have decided to increase the festival’s duration to three full days, which will be included in the tickets already purchased and will happen during the days 23rd, 24th and 25th June 2023.
In addition to this great announcement, we are revealing a total of 13 new bands, all of them great names of both international and national prestige. We can’t help but highlight the inclusion of Helloween, one of the most important names in the history of heavy metal and forefathers of the power metal genre. Hundreds of bands have been inspired by the more than 40 years of deeds of the German act, and being able to confirm them as one of the headliners of the next edition of Rock Imperium Festival 2023 is nothing but a true honour for us.
The Germans will be joined by another two classic bands, pioneers of the NWOBHM, like Angel Witch and Tygers of Pan Tang, both of them big influences on future styles like Thrash and Speed Metal. Fans of progressive metal will be delighted by the inclusion of Soen, and for those of you addicted to hard rock, H.E.A.T. will be crushing the festival! Leo Jiménez leads the amazing national bands of this new line-up revamp, which includes Ciclón, Jolly Joker, Rise To Fall, Elure, The Black Tree and Skull Mania.
We at Rock Imperium Festival are working hard in order to reach the ecstasy and unique experience that only live music can create, and to share it with all of you is what we aim to achieve the most! Long live to Rock Imperium Festival!
