Summer sales at Rock the City

Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Prodigy, Mike and the Mechanics, Papa Roach and Therapy will rock Bucharest between July 1 and 3.

Discounts are on offer for the third edition of the “Rock the City” festival. The three-day passes, in the Normal Circle category, now cost RON 169, the organizers, D&D East Entertainment, announced, yesterday, in a press release. Those who already purchased a pass have two options for exchanging it. First option: they can request to have their Normal Circle pass replaced with a Golden Circle one, at the entrance. Second: they can go to the dealer where they purchased it for a refund. This discount is due to the sponsor and partner of the event: Ursus.

“Ursus wouldn’t have signed a partnership with D&D East Entertainment if we hadn’t been persuaded the event would be sold out,” Mihai Bonca, Ursus Senior Brand Manager, stated, quoted by “Romania Libera”. Lenti Chiriac, Pro­duc­tion Manager D&D East Entertainment, stated that the production for this year’s edition was to be ensured by the guest bands, therefore, those present at Romexpo between July 1 and 3 will be treated to a row of spectacular shows. The 2011 edition of “Rock the City” promises to be a success, particularly thanks to the impressive line-up, including a new Judas Priest appearance in Bucharest, a concert not to be missed, which is part of the band’s latest tour, “Epitaph World Tour”. Alongside Judas Priest, you can see other heavyweight names, the likes of Whitesnake (photo), Papa Roach (for the first time in Romania), The Prodigy (for the fourth time here), Mike and the Mechanics, Therapy and Hatebreed.

Denise Sandulescu, General Manager D&D East Enter­tain­ment, announced, in a press conference last week, the Roma­nian names taking part in the festival. These include Trooper, Mo­narchy, Metrock and Voodoo (the band comprising Nelu Dumi­trescu, Iris’s drummer). “This festival is the last chance to see some famous bands in 2011, because the organizers have run out of funds,” Chiriac added. Last month, Sandulescu stated that the budget allotted to the festival would amount to over EUR 1 M.

The public will be granted access to the concerts every day starting 2pm, and concerts are scheduled to start at 5pm.
Tickets are available in the Eventim network, in Vodafone, Domo, Germanos and Orange shops, in Carturesti and Huma­nitas bookshops, as well as online, on www.eventim.ro, where you can also check the price of tickets in the other categories.
