In Flames Launch Their Own Two-Day Festival “Borgholm Brinner” (Borgholm is Burning)
In Flames are getting in on the festival game. According to a press release, the Swedish melodeath legends will launch their own two-day festival, Borgholm Brinner (“Borgholm is Burning”), in July of 2018.
Borgholm Brinner will take place on Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th at the Borgholm Castle on the eastern Swedish island of Öland. Each evening, the band will perform an exclusive headline set following a lineup of five (or so) bands, soon to be announced. Tickets go on sale January 29 at 10am CET right here, where you can also sign up to receive email updates in the meantime.
Borgholm Castle looks to be quite the epicly appropriate place to host a metal show. According to Wikipedia it was first constructed in the 13th century but has since been rebuilt many times. Take a look at this thing:
At the end of July there will still be near-constant daylight in Sweden… needless to say, this festival is going to be quite memorable. Don’t snooze on it!
