Kavarna in Bulgaria Celebrates New Year's Eve with Heavy MetalKavarna in Bulgaria Celebrates New Year's Eve with Heavy Metal
The town of Kavarna on Bulgaria's Black Sea will celebrate New Year's Eve with a heavy metal concert, as has become traditional in recent years, featuring Bulgarian rock band BTR, US power metal band Holyhell and British heavy metal band Saxon.
Manowar vocalist Eric Adams and bassist Joey DeMaio, who also produces Holyhell, will also take part in the New Year's Eve concert. The musicians arrived in Bulgaria on Saturday together with Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden vocalist.
Kavarna is the location of the annual Kaliakra Rock Fest, which featured Manowar as the headliner band in 2007. The festival and the rock concerts on New Year's Eve have made the town a popular holiday location for rockers from Bulgaria and neighbouring countries.
The three-hour-long concert on Monday, broadcast on cable channel BBT, will end with Eric Adams singing the Bulgarian anthem, which he performed during the band's concert in June, as well.
After the concert, the celebrations will continue with a feast, paid for by the city hall, including ten lambs and more than 500 litres of wine.
