Swedish AOR Convention - April 13 PosterThe Swedish AOR Convention (May 31-June 02, 2019 in Malmo), recently unveiled more special acts. The roster is already stocked with Swedish AOR bands appearing at the first time event. The Swedish AOR Convention is born from last year’s MelodicRock Fest Scandinavia. Read about my time at that event here: MRFS Day #1 / MRFS Day #2 / MRFS Day #3. The official Facebook announcements appear below. With BAD HABIT already set to headline the Swedish AOR Convention the event recently revealed more announcements. Unfamiliar with BAD HABIT? Here’s the CGCM review of their debut release written by Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall: BAD HABIT – After Hours (Classic Review).  The appearance of BAD HABIT comes after last year’s successful acoustic gig at MelodicRock Fest Scandinavia.
