The Darkness (UK), Amaranthe (SE) and Jinjer (UA) are the first announced foreign acts for Qstock Festival next summer.

Released in October, Easter Is Cancelled is the sixth album by English glam rockers The Darkness, formed in 2000. It is the most ambitious piece of work to date by the Suffolk four-piece. The first single and video off the album, Rock And Roll Deserves To Die, has been widely recognised around the world.

Amaranthe are a familiar group to Qstock crowds with their open-minded mixture of extreme metal and electronic soundscapes. With the Helix album released one year ago, the group have established their status among arena-class giants touring the world.

Ukrainian progressive groove metal band Jinjer have toured actively since their album success with King of Everything three years back. The fourth album, Macro, was released in October and has been received enthusiastically, as well.

Confirmed Finnish acts for Qstock 2020 include SANNI, J. Karjalainen, Vesala, Ellinoora, Pyhimys, Nelli Matula, Kaija Koo, Atomirotta and Chisu.

“The bill for summer 2020 is forming nicely. We have a classy and versatile package on our hands once again. Actual headliners will be announced early next year,” says Festival Director Mikko Forstén.
