Once you get to the mighty metal mecca Stockholm, make sure to visit the legendary record store Sound Pollution and all the local metal bars you could. Also try to find time to go to “Skogskyrkogården”, Stockholm’s Forest Cemetery, hosting the famous stone cross so to take picture in front of it just like Entombed as seen in their “Left Hand Path” album!

We are proud to be part of this event as we have few metalheads from Bulgaria attending. Our country is among the nearly 30 countries presented at the festival this year at it’s second edition! Now that’s a great job, District 19!

Cheers and see you for some serious headbang this weekend!
