A new festival is coming to the O2 next June. The Stone Free Festival will be headlined by Alice Cooper and Rick Wakeman.
Taking place at The O2 Arena on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June, the event boasts the very best in classic rock music across two 12-hour days and multiple stages.
Shock rock master Alice Cooper said of his exclusive UK show: “Coming to the UK is always like coming home for us, fans in the UK are always high energy, always there. Headlining the very first Stone Free Festival at London’s The O2 in June next year is an example of why we feel so welcome.
“It will be my only performance in the UK next year, so that makes it even more special. And as always with my show you can expect the unexpected!"
Prog-rock legend Rick Wakeman will be performing his seminal album ‘The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table’ in its entirety for the first time since 1975.
He said: "After the success of the ‘Journey To The Centre Of The Earth’ shows last year, I’m over the moon to have the opportunity to perform ‘King Arthur’ for the first time since 1975 with an orchestra and choir. It’s going to be wonderful!"
Joining them are the mighty Marillion, Southern rockers Blackberry Smoke and ex-Genesis axeman Steve Hackett.
As well as the phenomenal live music there will also be special acoustic performances, Q&As with headline performers, cinema screenings at the STONE FREE picture show, a vinyl fair, specialist market stalls, classic album playbacks, Rock Royalty VIP packages, craft beers and street food alongside the established award-winning restaurants.
