Also joining the 10th anniversary line-up are Danzig, The Knockouts (Saturday 25) and Rival Sons (Friday 24) and the full program with activities related with the festival last ten years to be announced soon.

At the beginning, names of legendary figures like Ozzy Osbourne, Brian Setzer or Gregg Allman among many others gave the status it deserves to the Azkena Rock Festival 10th anniversary line-up.  Now it is confirmed the presence of Queens Of The Stone Age who, in 2005 offered what according to the festival official web users was the best concert in the festival history. This year they will be leading Friday June 24 line-up at the sole performance the band from California will offer in Spain in 2011.

Queens Of The Stone Age is formed in 1997 by Josh Homme, after the dissolution of his previous band, Kyuss. During the last years they have released five studio albums and several EPs. In their albums or tours they have collaborated with great musicians like Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), Mark Lanegan and Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees), Chris Goss (Masters Of Reality) or Nick Oliveri and Alfredo Hernández (Kyuss). During these 14 years of career Josh Homme has got to get rid of the 'stoner rock' label to his band and to create something more than that: his own style based on the sharp sound of the guitars, the excellent melodies, the amazing lives and on the energy his music releases.

Queens Of The Stone Age has won in its own right the status of leader among the great Rock and Roll bands of the following decades. After Homme's experience leading Them Crooked Vultures they are now back to the stages.

Danzig will be another outstanding band of this Azkena Rock 10th Anniversary. This band formed in 1987 by singer Glenn Danzig after leaving The Misfits and ending his relationship with Samhain, has edited ten musical referentes shifting between heavy metal and hard rock styles.

Two more bands complete this new group of additions: the Swedish The Knockouts (melodic punk-rock with rockabilly touches and three long plays in the market) and the Californian Rival Sons (classic rock & roll with soul and gospel).

10th Anniversary Activity Program
We also announce you that in some weeks we will release the program of parallel activities related to the festival tenth anniversary that will include many and varied surprises.
