Folkstone to headline the first day of Luppolo in Rock

Author Benedetta Baldin - 20.3.2024

The historic band Folkstone will be the Friday headliners at the sixth edition of Luppolo in Rock, which will take place in Cremona on 19, 20 and 21 July 2024.
The announcement of the band from Bergamo is not the only one: to complete the festival bill there will also be Derdian and Uttern, also on Friday, a day that will be characterized by strong folk metal tones. Fifteen bands will take turns on the prestigious festival stage to offer fans three days of fun and, above all, excellent music. Fifteen bands offer the public the various declinations that metal has produced over decades of history.

These bands join the previously announced line-ups: Brainstorm, Rain, Skeletoon, Inverno, Alestorm, Myrath, Saor Patrol, Gamma Ray with special guest Ralf Scheepers, Primordial, Amorphis, Paradise Lost and Uada.

Folkstone, powerfully back in the limelight after their reunion in 2023 and confirmed in the recent sold-out show at Milan’s Alcatraz, are the paladins of tricolor folk metal who, with a handful of albums, have won the approval of both critics and the public.

Derdian, on the other hand, have consecrated their musical identity to the mixture of symphonic orchestrations and powerful rhythm guitar and drum riffs.

Finally, Uttern are a unique reality on the Italian and European scene. It is an all-female band that, through music, wants to reconnect with the ancient spirituality of pagan Europe, combining solemnity and celebration on stage in a powerful mix of pagan-schamanic sounds. Their concert thus becomes a real journey into another dimension.

Pre-sales are now open at the following prices: single day €45 + pre-sale fees; 3-day subscription €119 + pre-sale fees. More information on the official website by clicking here. Link to the ticket office by clicking here.
