Saxon and Accept confirmed for Rock Imperium Festival 2024

Rock Imperium Festival Spain 2023 first acts news

The legendary SAXON, pioneers and undisputed leaders of the NWOBHM, will bring their exclusive show “Castles & Eagles” to Cartagena, celebrating the 40th anniversary of their first live album, the iconic “The Eagle Has Landed” (1982), considered one of the best live recordings of the entire 80s. With this, the heavy metal crusaders commemorate their golden age positioning themselves as the first headliner for Rock Imperium Festival 2024.

The Germans ACCEPT, known for having one of the best live performances on the planet and an unmissable repertoire of anthems that are living history of heavy metal, will be devastating Cartagena in 2024 with their razor-sharp recital, ensuring not a single one of their classics is missing.

After more than 20 years of trying to work with them, our darkest dream comes true as the Norwegians EMPEROR emerge from the shadows to conquer Rock Imperium Festival’s third edition, where they will deliver their only show in Spain. Emperor is a key piece in the history of black metal, having influenced the genre and leaving a lasting legacy to this day.

Also from Norway, TNT, masters of hard rock that have been making our heads bang for 40 years, will bring their hits to Cartagena for a unique show in Spain.

Lastly, the rise of the Finnish band BEAST IN BLACK, whose recent European tour was a complete sold-out success, ascends to the Olympus of heavy metal with their energetic proposal. They will undoubtedly conquer the next edition of Rock Imperium Festival in 2024.
