In Flames announced a few months back that for the first time they were going to host their own festival, Borgholm Brinner (which translates as Borgholm is Burning) in their homeland of Sweden, specifically at the historic Borgholm Castle on the island of Öland. Having previously announced some of the line up including Bullet For My Valentine, Graveyard, and themselves as headliners for both nights of the festival, they are now able to confirm the final bands and full line up for Borgholm Brinner 2018.
Finishing off the line up for Borgholm Brinner will be two of In Flames’ Scandinavian metal contemporaries; Their fellow Gothenburg natives Dark Tranquility are the first new addition to the festival. With In Flames’ own Anders Friden having been part of Dark Tranquility in the early days of the band, the histories of Dark Tranquility and In Flames are intertwined, and this Summer will see them share the stage in their shared homeland for the first time in many years. Also joining the line up are Norwegian black metal favourites Satyricon, who are old favourites of ours here at Rock Sins and who have been through something of a resurgence over the last couple of years with their latest album Deep Calleth Upon Deep being much heralded.
The final line up for the festival is as follows:
Friday, July 27th:
Saturday, July 28th:
Bullet For My Valentine
