Monday, June 18th 2018. I am back home and back to normal life. Time to have a look back to four days of pure metal in Finland. An almost neverending festival….

The Rock Fest started on Wednesday with five bands, Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus (gallery here), Kilpi, Stone Sour (gallery here), Bullet For My Valentine and Ozzy Osbourne (gallery here) as headliner.
