Hard Rock Heroes Festival 2023

It will be a real feast for all hard rock fans! HARD ROCK HEROES FESTIVAL will take place on June 12, 2023 at TAURON Arena Kraków! Deep Purple will be the headliner of the festival! Among the special guests there will be such artists as the Scottish group Nazareth, the Polish scene will be represented by Kruk & Wojtek Cugowski!


A formation that certainly needs no introduction to any hard rock lover. The band has been active on the music scene since 1968. The group has 25 studio albums to its credit, and the latest one, “Surviving the Law” was released in April 2022. The band came to the top of the European charts primarily thanks to two albums from 1973, “Razamanaz”, which was produced by Roger Glover from Deep Purple and “Loud ‘n’ Proud”. However, the band’s album “Hair of the Dog” (1975) brought worldwide fame. In the United States alone, the album has found over 1 million buyers. It was on this album that the song “Love Hurts” was found, which Nazareth popularized and it was this version of the song that became a worldwide hit. The band currently tours with Carl Sentance (vocals), Pete Agnew (bass), Lee Agnew (drums) and Jimmy Murrison (guitar).


A formation that is well known to Polish fans of purple sounds. The latest album “Be There”, recorded together with Wojtek Cugowski, was released in April 2021 and met with a sensational reception from fans and the media. Certainly, Kruk’s music eludes rigid definitions – it draws inspiration from classic hard rock such as Deep Purple or Rainbow. The band is also not afraid of long complex compositions and flirting with more progressive sounds.

Piotr Brzychcy: “It is impossible to imagine a better festival for Kruk than Hard Rock Heroes with Deep Purple as the main star. It is a great honor and great happiness for us. Kruk has already performed with Deep Purple three times and it was the greatest fulfillment of our dreams. As a longtime fan of hard’n’heavy music, when I heard about such a festival, I immediately thought – you absolutely have to be there! legendary groups slowly decide to retire, or worse, go to the other side of the rainbow. There is also a spark of hope in my heart that maybe for this special occasion Wojtek Cugowski and I will prepare a premiere song, because work on Kruk’s new album continues!”

Deep Purple

This is a true phenomenon of the music scene. This band is considered the most important group in the history of music, which co-created such genres as heavy metal and hard rock. It was Deep Purple that was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the loudest band in the world. The group has been operating for over 50 years and has sold over 100 million records. Deep Purple has released 22 studio albums and numerous live albums. Their song “Smoke On The Water” was among the top 500 compositions in the history of rock music.

In 2020, the album “Whoosh!” was released, and in 2021 the album “Turning to Crime” with a set of unusual Deep Purple covers. In July, Steve Morse left the band, but was replaced by Irish singer and guitarist Simon McBride. The great musical journey under the sign of Deep Purple continues, and the band itself impresses with its brilliant concert form. Metal Mind Productions invites you to:
