The heavy metal and hard rock music festival, Leyendas del Rock, has confirmed seven new bands for the 2023 edition, which will be held at the Villena Municipal Sports Center, Alicante. This event, which has been held annually since 2006, is one of the most anticipated by fans in Europe and around the world.
Every year, Leyendas del Rock shows that it is committed to growing. Although in its beginnings most of the bands were Spanish, more and more are betting on international groups. In this edition, the festival will last for four days (from August 9 to 12), with a poster with several weight names.
Among the bands that were already confirmed are: Amaranthe, Angelus Apatrida, Diamond Head, Dragonfly, Dragonforce, Uuhai, Virgin Steele and many more. However, the poster has become much more interesting thanks to the incorporation of these groups.
NEW BANDS FOR ROCK LEGENDS 2023
Among the groups that are added to the festival lineup are: Beast In Black, Benediction, Keep Of Kalessin, Twilight Force, Heidevolk, Dry River, Uuhai and KK’s Priest, as the headliner. Without a doubt, more luxury names for an unforgettable date.
Heavy Metal group KK’S PRIEST, KK Downing’s band, will perform at the festival in what will be their only Spanish dream concert this year. This appearance has been described by the festival as “an appointment with history”.
For its part, Beast in Black, founded by Anton Kabanen, is one of those with the greatest projection today. He already participated in the 2019 edition and they just come from closing a successful tour in Spain.

Several of these bands, such as the Norwegian Keep of Kalessin (who come to the festival with a new line-up) and the Dutch folk metal band, Heidevolk, will be presenting their new material live. In the case of Keep of Kalessin it is their album Katharsis, which has been very well received.
Likewise, Dry River, which is one of the most interesting and diverse proposals today, has earned its first presentation on the important stage. Although, certainly, one of the original proposals that will captivate will be Uuhai, direct from Mongolia, which combines rock metal with the musical legacy of his country.
