Line Up 2023 final confirmed

Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons and Vandenberg complete the bill

Headliners ACCEPT, co-headliners GOTTHARD, The Dead Daisies and heavy metal all-star project All For Metal have been joined by Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons and Vandenberg.

The running order is as follows

  1. Accept
  2. Gotthard
  3. Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons (plays Motörhead)
  4. The Dead Daisies
  5. Vandenberg
  6. All For Metal

With Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons, an absolute rock veteran joins the billing: Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell. He will be accompanied by his son Todd Campbell (also on guitar) and his brothers Tyla (bass) and Dane (drums) as well as singer Joel Peters. The unusual family band will perform a very special show in memory of the late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, playing a pure Motörhead set.

And with Vandenberg, another cult musician joins the band: Adrian Vandenberg was the main man at David Coverdale's side during Whitesnake's commercial heyday. With his own band VANDENBERG he will present songs from the current chart album "Sin" as well as Whitesnake hits. He will be supported by monster singer Mats Levén (Yngwie Malmsteen, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), who in 2023 sounds like Coverdale at his best.

GOTTHARD confirmed as co-headliner

The line up for this is taking form bit by bit

Besides the mega-act ACCEPT, who was confirmed as headliner a few weeks ago, the co-headliner is now confirmed: The Swiss success rockers from GOTTHARD.

In Switzerland they are the most successful rock act of all time and also in Germany the band from Ticino looks back on a long history of success. A whopping 17 number 1 albums, a Diamond Award for over one million albums sold in Switzerland and over 2,000 shows, a large part of which were sold out, are just a few milestones of their career. In 2021, the band won the Swiss Music Awards in the category "best group". On December 16 in Karlsruhe at the Schwarzwaldhalle, GOTTHARD will set the mood with their goosebump hard rock.
