Van Canto

Friday Aug 5

A fresh breeze in the metal swamp at Sabaton Open Air – this is what German VAN CANTO stands for. If you have seen them before – perhaps at our festival, which they have visited twice before – you know what is going on. This is a metal band with just one instrument (drums), the rest of the sounds on stage are pure vocals. Thus it is an a capella band that we have the honor to present today!

Squeaky guitars, thunderous basses and tormented synths will give way to a more ”humane” sound. Since the band formed back in 2006, they have released seven albums and toured the world with their golden throats. One of the founders, Stef, comment: “We are excited and thrilled to fill the magic festival area in Falun with our rakkatakking voices. We are invited for the third time to this outstanding event – Thank you!!!”

Well, thank YOU for coming back!
