British melodic rock band Dare will be playing at this year’s Sweden Rock Festival. Dare will be filling in for Kansas, who recently announced the cancellation of their entire European tour this summer. Dare, featuring former Thin Lizzy member Darren Wharton as vocalist and front man, played a hugely successful show at the 2015 edition of the festival and we are very happy to have them back to help us out at such short notice. Rival Sons will be taking over the Kansas main stage slot and Dare will be playing the Rival Sons slot on the second stage. An updated running order is now available at
