Suikerrock Festival 2012


Win for Life Suikerrock is adding even more to 2012’s mildly outstanding line-up of international rock sensations and national successes in pop music!

On Thursday, 26 July, the rock gods Triggerfinger and ZZ Top will be joined by the British rockers The Union and the Canadian blues sensation Philip Sayce. On Friday, 27 July, the rock/metal day will be strengthened further with vintage metal band Sweet Savage and on Sunday, 29 July, the young pop and Eurovision Song Festival sensations Tom Dice and Iris will open the festival’s closing day. Just as in previous years, Studio Brussels and JIM presenter Ilse Liebens will announce the acts on the main stage.

The Union was founded in 2010 by former Thunder guitar player Luke Morley and former Winterville front man Peter Shoulder; its mission: blues-oriented hard rock in the footsteps of the great example, Led Zeppelin.  Philip Sayce is an outstanding blues guitar player from Toronto, Canada. He has played in the past with Jeff Healey and Melissa Etheridge and is the standing support act for ZZ Top.

Sweet Savage are the Northern Irish pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and were one of the sources of inspiration for Metallica.  After his Eurovision Song Festival success, Tom Dice has not been idle. He has released a new album: Heart For Sale. On Win for Life Suikerrock, he is joined by the new Eurovision entry Iris.

With the exception of the DJ acts that are still to be finalised, this completes the line-up for the main stage. Things are going to be hotting up during 26-29 July in Tienen!
