This year's festival was visited by 35,200 people, but in 2010 the maximum number of visitors will be limited to 33,000.
Aldo Nova is best known internationally for the hit single "Fantasy", which propelled his debut album, "Aldo Nova" (1982), to double-platinum status in the U.S. "Monkey on Your Back" off "Subject" (1983) was a decent hit as well, but Aldo Nova retired as a solo artist after his third album "Twitch" (1985) sold a lot less than the previous did two except in — Sweden! He has since gained greater recognition as a professional composer, creating massive hits for artists like CÉLINE DION and CLAY AIKEN. Over the years, he has also released a few more solo albums, for instance the superb, guitar-oriented "Blood on the Bricks" (1991) where he wrote most of the songs together with Jon Bon Jovi. Apart from being a fantastic songwriter, he is also known for being a marvelous guitar player. His new album, "Too Much Sex", due for release in early 2010, finally brings him to Sweden and Sweden Rock Festival.
