Rob Zombie cancels his Ilosaarirock Festival date

Rob Zombie has cancelled the last six dates of his 2014 European tour, including his Ilosaarirock Festival appearance. This is due to an unavoidable change in the production dates of Rob Zombie's new film project. Ilosaarirock Festival is deeply sorry for any inconvenience and despair caused and will soon publish the name of the act that fills in for Mr. Zombie.


Portishead, Alice in Chains, Ellie Goulding and many others

Today, Ilosaarirock Festival released perhaps the best Ilosaarirock Festival line-up ever. In the second weekend of July, Joensuu in Eastern Finland will host the legendary Bristol act Portishead (UK), the one and only Alice in Chains (USA), the piping hot star Ellie Goulding (UK), Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg (USA), Trentemøller's (DEN) mix of electronica and indie rock and Mustasch's (SWE) only summer gig in Finland.

In addition to previously announced Rob Zombie and Haim (both USA), there is also a stellar number of Finnish acts on the list: Jenni Vartiainen, Black Lizard, Ranger, Insomnium, Wolfheart, Gracias & The Globe Band and many others. See line-up for more details. Two-day tickets for the weekend and one-day tickets for Saturday or Sunday are available now.

Ilosaarirock Festival 2014 will take place between 11 and 13 July. The line-up will be completed during the spring.
