What is the rock festival

Return after the completely sold out shows in recent years the Scottish Legends Back to (Ur) Switzerland in 2021!

They belong to the first generation of hard & heavy bands and after their founding in 1968, together with bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath, they played a key role in shaping the style of hard rock. With over 60 million records sold, they are (alongside the Simple Minds) the most successful rock band in Scotland of all time. In other words: Nazareth is a deserved headliner at UrRock 2021! If the rock dinosaurs will shake the UrRock stage on Sunday, November 14th, 2021 with classics such as “This Flight Tonight”, “Expect No Mercy”, “Hair Of The Dog”, “Dream On” or “Love Hurts”, then we are not only taken back to the good old days of the wild 70s, but also experience a band up close, which after more than 50 years is still bursting with joy and is well equipped for the future.

This confidence is also due to the singer: Carl Sentance. With his gifted rock voice, the Welshman perfectly closes the big gap between veteran and band co-founder Dan McCafferty, who had to resign in 2013 for health reasons. Sentance draws on its many years of experience as the front man of bands like Krokus or Tokyo Blade, as well as working with greats like Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Paul Chapman (UFO), Vinny Appice (Dio, Sabbath) or Don Airey (Deep Purple).

From 1971 until today, Nazareth have recorded 24 studio albums. They have received platinum and gold awards all over the world. The latest work "Tattooed on My Brain" - a disc that every rock fan should have on their music shelf. Lots of rock, sometimes bluesy, sometimes groovy, sometimes southern style, then with a view to psychedelic, but mostly British, brings back memories of the years when British rock music was at the top.

On the new record we hear a lot of vibes from 60s / 70s rock music, but the work sounds modern and fresh and not dusty. We are proud that Nazareth will represent the headlining slot on Sunday and look forward to a great show!
