In addition to her solo performances, Ane has collaborated with various artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Tonbruket, Madrugada, and Peter Gabriel.

Winchester Widowmakers: A Musical Force Unleashed (2010)
Among the stellar lineup set to grace our stage, the Winchester Widowmakers stand out as a musical force to be reckoned with.

Audiences can expect to be transported to a world of musical enchantment as Meadows takes the stage, adding a touch of magic to our milestone celebration… and he’s played for EVERY YEAR of this festival’s existence!
Israel Nash Gripka’s Neil Young-inspired Resonance (2011):
In 2011, the echoes of Israel Nash Gripka’s closing chords resonated through the festival grounds, marking a pivotal moment in Örebro’s rock history. The (back then) new rising star, accompanied by his three-piece band, left an indelible impression with their performance, particularly in the Neil Young & Crazy Horse-inspired anthem “Baltimore.” The crowd lingered, minutes past schedule, as the realization dawned that something significant and momentous had occurred in the vibrant rock tapestry of Örebro.
Lolita Pop’s Unforgettable night (2019):
Fast forward to 2019, and the festival experienced another unforgettable chapter with the dynamic presence of Lolita Pop. Attendees bore witness to a band that transcended the confines of a single concert evening. The energy exuded by the dancing Karin Wistrand and the occasionally bouncing and smiling Sten Booberg, the guitarist, was envy-inducing in every detail. The entire ensemble, including the visually understated yet sonically integral guitar of Benkt Söderberg, contributed to an impressively cohesive and awe-inspiring performance. Lolita Pop left an enduring mark on our festival, proving that their musical legacy extends far beyond the confines of a single night.
