SWR XIX - Festival Recap

09-05-2016 18:06

Alright folks, we're now done covering the 19th edition of SWR and boy wasn't it awesome! No rain, no big issues, great shows and a smooth ride through 4 days of extreme metal music and communion among peers.

It's now time for a quick recap. This year we had three in-house photographers who've done a splendid job covering the event, André Henriques, Leonor Ananké and Pedro Roque. Check their work for SWR 19 below:

André Henriques: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 
Leonor Ananké: Day 0 | Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3
Pedro Roque: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3

As per usual. we've also had our favourite documentary crew, André Vieira and Priscilla Fontoura from Lula Gigante Produções doing a 35 minute report you can watch here:

 

And finally, Mariana Vasconcelos from Wav Magazine did an epic 3 minute video capturing some great moments from this years shows:



Now it's time for us to clean up and start preparing SWR XX! It's been a long ride and it's hard to believe we'll be twenty next year, so expect something really special.


ABORTED CANCELLED

06-04-2016 18:06

We're really sorry to announce that Belgian act ABORTED were forced to cancel their presence at SWR XIX. Here's the official statement from the band:

"Sadly we have to inform you all that Aborted won't be able to perform at this year's SWR fest in Barrosellas. Due to scheduling conflicts we are forced to withdraw from the festival line up, however we are already working out plans with the promoters for our return in the future, so fear not! We apologise sincerely to the promoters and the fans coming to the festival, there are still a ton of amazing bands on the bill, show your support and have a blast!"

Needless to say we've tried everything we could to make this happen, we had a deal signed since last June, but it wasn't meant to be, so ABORTED are the first band confirmed for the 20th edition of SWR Barroselas Metalfest. As for a replacement act for SWR 19, we've reached out to many of the biggest bands out there but it was impossible to replace a huge name on such a short notice, especially for a band playing on a Friday, so we're asking you to put your faith in us as we've booked a surprise act that will not disappoint you and will be playing on the 22nd of April on the main stage.

People wanting to get back their money from their 1-day ticket purchase please contact us via private message so we can make it happen.
