After a 7 year absence from the Spanish festival scene, DragonForce are proud to announce their return. The band will play the Leyendas del Rock Festival, Villena on Thursday 11th August 2016.
Sam Totman explained the 7 year wait by saying “We’ve never been in the right place at the right time to return to a Spanish festival over the past 7 years, which is a great shame because we’ve always really enjoyed playing open air shows in Spain. The fact we’ll be back in 2016 is great news and I know I speak for all the band when I say we’re really looking forward to this and guarantee the fans we’ll put on a great show!”
