HYPOCRISY, ENGEL and F.K.. have been confirmed for next year's edition of the Rockstad: Falun festival, set to take place August 16-18, 2012 at Lugnet Falun in Falun, Sweden.

The festival billing is shaping up as follows (in alphabetical order):


Krister Lindholm, one of the organizers of Rockstad: Falun, last year stated about the festival's origins, "Pr from SABATON and I wanted to do a special SABATON show back in 2008 and we invited some local bands and made the first issue of Rockstad: Falun a total success when we sold out the venue (1600 tickets) and went through the night with no problems or other negative stuff. After that, we decided to make the Rockstad: Falun festival an annual event and we started the plans for 2009 within a few weeks after the premiere. 2009 we went outside to do an open air one-day festival, everything went out good but we had four days of heavy rain during that weekend so we didn't manage to get more than 3000 people out."
