The wait has come to an end and we can finally announce some of the bands that will play at Resurrection Fest 2018. Our goal was to announce the whole lineup, but many bands are not ready to be announced, so we are releasing this first bunch of bands and later we’ll have the last announcement that will bring balance to the billing.
Firstly, we’re hugely proud to announce that for the very first time ever one of the biggest and most popular rock bands in the world will be in Galicia: the hottest band in the world, KISS! They are coming from USA just to play in Spain in one of the very few performances in 2018, and we’ll have in Viveiro the most special show to date among all their visits, with full production and full length. Soon we’ll announce a surprise about this performance, but we can’t tell you more right now. It will be an honor to have Gene Simmons, “The Demon”, Paul Stanley and the rest of the band headlining our biggest day, Saturday 14th July.
We’ll also have in Viveiro one of the most influential bands in rock history and will headline Friday 13th July. From Germany, Scorpions will play in Viveiro for the first time, and we can’t wait to hear so many anthems like “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, “Still Loving You” or “Winds of Change”, among many others.
By popular request, Corey Taylor will finally be at Resurrection Fest! Since his other band Slipknot is having a break, we’ll have the only show in Spain of Stone Sour, one of the main bands in oru lineup. They will play new songs from their last album “Hydrograd” and also all the classics. Are you ready?
About extreme metal, we’ll have some good old friends and many new faces that never played here, highlighting Ministry, At The Gates, Overkill, Alestorm, Thy Art Is Murder, Exodus, Suffocation, Leprous or Igorrr, among many others.
Time for the punk and hardcore stage, we never forget our roots! Anti-Flag are returning to Viveiro, bigger than ever, and we’ll also have Zebrahead, Riot Propaganda, Cancer Bats, Stick To Your Guns, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Evergreen Terrace or Rise of The Northstar, among many others. The Qemists, as alternative to a typical show in our festival, will bring their mix of drum’n’bass and electronic music to drop a big party.
Our Desert Stage still has room for more good things to be announced, but we can tell you that some quality bands will play here, like Saint Vitus, God Is An Astronaut, Stoned Jesus, Harakiri For The Sky, Monolord, Rolo Tomassi or Mars Red Sky.
In the Spanish section, we’ll have a great selection of the most modern acts and high quality bands, so we recommend you to see the whole list, we’re sure you’ll discover many gems.
