Swedish Rockaway Festival 2014 to present local scene round-up

The swedish metal scene features a lot of great bands. One town seems to have a lot of those bands: Bollnäs. It's this place where such great bands as Morgana Lefay or Tad Morose have their origins.

Happily the scene is still alive and active today. Some people grabbed a heart and have now set up a proper two days event to help promote these bands directly in the town of Bollnäs, Sweden: the Rockaway 2014 festival is born.

The shows will take place at different locations along with some additional stuff going on while the festival, e.g. BBQ, Merch stand or Vinyl wall. On day one the focus is set more on Metal, while the second day is dedicated to punk music. Here's some info about the event and links to the bands:
