Since 2013, Rich “The Meister” Dillon, CGCM Podcast’s co-host and website editor has made his trek from Toronto to Solvesborg, Sweden for Sweden Rock Festival. During those annual adventures he witnesses many outstanding acts grace the five stages. Discovering young new bands, bands that he wasn’t into previously, or watching old favourites alike. Also connecting with many folks from around the world, he is a far cry from that scared lonely Canadian in 2013.

Friends like Shawn “Animalize” Irwin, Mikael Svensson and Ron Runyon. Originally the event coverage appeared on Decibel Geek but is now presented here in this collection.
