Rock Imperium Festival – 23-25 June 2022 – Cartagena, Spain

The gods welcome you to Rock Imperium Festival 2022!

Grateful for the tremendous reception that the festival has received and with a look on the future we are pleased to announce the addition of no more than 24 bands closing the poster for an ambitious first edition of Rock Imperium Festival in Cartagena
These 24 bands add to the 19 previously announced, and it is impossible not to emphasize the presence of Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia whose formal and stylistic contributions open new exploration tracks and transcend the genre itself, or Europe, whose compositions are beyond genres and styles, being these living music stories. Both formations will offer full shows under the attentive star s’ gaze on Game of a festival that aspires to set a precedent in the city and promises to be unforgettable.
From the exhausting curatorial work lying under the sign we have tried to tear down all borders and gather the most pomegranate of each style from progressive to thrash going through hard rock or death metal, offering a good taste of what it is passing in the landscape of rock and metal nationally and internationally without neglecting the great bands that have made history and marked the path of rock forever.
Also note that the doors to this first edition of Rock Imperium Festival will open on June 23, 2022 in a magical night of celebration for the summer solstice, the Litha Night in the Norse cultures with which we try to build bridges from this ancestral port.
As many other cultures will do in the port of the three-time millennial city of Cartagena, we landed in it to vindicate it and put it definitively in value with the wingspan and features of an event like Rock Imperium Festival.
Finally this temple will host at its first ceremony the whopping 43 bands from all the ends of the planet from Finland to Japan to celebrate the return of something we missed greatly and has the unusual ability to unite all people under the sun: live music.
The best of all is that, despite our fineness, the music remains, and will remain. Bands like Scorpions, Whitesnake or Europe have been able to materialize the secret of what it means to be human in unfailing transgenerational hymns. Hymns whose echo we are sure will resonate equally as flaming 3000 years from now on the walls of this, our city, your city, Cartagena.
In the dawn of humanity, when the world was still carved by nature and our steps were guided by the stars, numerous cultures included in the northern hemisphere of the globe established the cult and celebration of Litha, summer’s solstice. Especially in the northern region of old Europe, the nordic cultures devoted themselves with joy and frenzy to the arrival of summer in the shortest night of the year, a magic night in which everything is alive and speaks through the fire in the bonfire.
Rock Imperium Festival is proud to build bridges to the Mediterranean so this eminently Nordic tradition, which finds in Saint John’s Eve a mirror in which it can reflect itself, and it does it in the company of two amazing acts that unite in their music all the spirit of what is likely to be an once-in-a-lifetime night at Paseo del Puerto Stage, next to El Batel Auditorium.
This night out will open the doors to its mysteries with Moonsorrow. After more than 25 years of activity, the Finnish band is definitely one of the biggest names in the pagan/folk metal scene, with their very strong black metal base that boils in every single track off their last album, “Jumalten aika”, The Age of the Gods.
For her part, the voice of the Danish singer and multiinstrumentalist Amalie Bruun and her project Myrkur will be in charge of fueling the fire of the souls during this Litha. Even though Myrkur started as a project focused on the most ethereal black metal, the direction she underwent on her most recent album, the delicate and magical “Folkesange” (Popular Songs) abandons all the wrath and noise in favour of an unforgettable journey through the sonic tradition of the Nordic cultures via a folk based on traditional Scandinavian instruments.
Both bands will offer COMPLETE SHOWS, so get ready to give in to the most atavistic pleasures with Moonsorrow and elevate yourselves with Myrkur during this mesmerizing solstice night, the Litha Night.
“Litha Night” will be the welcome party to Rock Imperium Festival, but due to the limited capacity of the venue and not being part of the festival itself, tickets will have to purchased for 20€ (+ booking fee) to everyone who wants to attend the festival, no matter if they have tickets for the next days or the don’t.
Tickets already for sale at www.madnesslive.es or www.rockimperiumfestival.es
En los albores de la humanidad, cuando el mundo era todavía labrado por la naturaleza y nuestros pasos eran guiados por las estrellas, numerosas culturas pertenecientes al hemisferio norte del globo sentaron el culto y celebración de Litha, el solsticio de verano. Especialmente al norte de la vieja Europa, las culturas nórdicas se entregaron con júbilo y frenesí a celebrar la llegada del verano en la noche más breve de todo el año, una noche mágica en la que todo está vivo y habla a través del fuego de la hoguera.
Rock Imperium Festival se complace en tender puentes al mediterráneo para esta tradición eminentemente nórdica que encuentra en la noche de San Juan un espejo en el que mirarse, y lo hace con la presencia de dos brillantes formaciones que aúnan en su música todo el espíritu de lo que podría ser una noche irrepetible en el Escenario Paseo del Puerto (junto Auditorio el Batel).
La velada abrirá las puertas a sus misterios con Moonsorrow. Con más de 25 años de trayectoria, la formación finesa se erige sin lugar a dudas como una de las bandas más representativas del Pagan/folk metal, siempre con una recurrente base de black metal que hierve en cada uno de los temas del último trabajo que lanzaron, “Jumalten Aika”, El Tiempo de los Dioses.
Por su parte, la voz de la cantante y multiinstrumentista danesa Amalie Bruun y su proyecto Myrkur se encargará de avivar el fuego de las almas en esta Litha. Si bien Myrkur comenzó como un proyecto que hundía sus raíces en una suerte de black metal etéreo, la dirección de su último, delicadisimo y mágico trabajo titulado “Folkesange” (Canciones Populares) abandona toda ira o estridencia para sumergirnos en un inolvidable recorrido por la tradición sonora de los países nórdicos mediante un folk construido a base de instrumentos tradicionales escandinavos.
Ambas formaciones ofrecerán SHOW COMPLETO así que prepárense para entregarse a los placeres más atávicos con Moonsorrow, y levitar con Myrkur en esta hipnótica noche de solsticio, la Litha Night.
“Litha Night” será la fiesta de presentación de Rock Imperium Festival pero debido al aforo reducido del recinto y no formar parte del festival en sí, la entrada tendrá un precio de 20€ (más gastos) para todo aquel que quiera acudir, tanto si tienes abono como si no.
