San Pedro Rock 2011

San Pedro Rock 2011 is taking place on Saturday the 30th April from 7pm. The festival, in previous years, has hosted headliners such as Barricada, Baron Rojo, Fito y Fitipaldis and La Cabra Mecanica making San Pedro Rock an important festival on the rock scene.

This year, the hugely popular Mago de Oz are headlining San Pedro Rock and taking magic to the stage with some serious rock sounds.

San Pedro Rock 2011 – Mago de Oz:

Mago de Oz – Formed in May 1988 by drummer Txus di Fellatio in Madrid, they were initially called Transylvania, in honour of a metallic instrumental piece performed by Iron Maiden.

In 1989 they changed the name to Mago de Oz (Wizard of Oz) because “Life is a yellow brick road on which we walk in the company of others, searching for our dreams” according to Txus.

Their style is a mixture of rock and heavy metal with a twist of folk music with lyrics searching for peace, social awareness and respect for diversity.

Mago de Oz went on to achieve great success in Spain and in 1995 were declared Revolution Rock Band. They continue to be one of the biggest rock bands around.

San Pedro Rock 2011 Artists Include:

A + B – A modern and versatile rock band from Marbella.

Carmine – According to the dictionary, Carmine means “bright red material.” The band themselves think this best defines them as the group are clear and sharp as a good rock band live on stage should be!

Octubre Roto – Formed by three music lovers combining different trends and styles with a mixture of rock, psychedelic and ’80s sounds, with lyrics expressing their own experiences. They have collaborated with musicians such as Mark Grimaldi, Carlos Segarra (Los Rebeldes) and John Poyatos (El Hombre Tranquilo).

Salvi Moreno and The Traffic Jam – After 13 years on stage performing great versions of U2, Pearl Jam and Pink Floyd, Malaga-born artist Salvi Moreno brings Traffic Jam to life with American influences and enigmatic passionate vocals to each performance.
