Stone Free Festival a new two-day event at The O2, London will be headlined by Alice Cooper in a UK exclusive, and in a world exclusive Rick Wakeman will be performing ‘The Myths & Legends Of King Arthur & The Knights Of The Round Table’ for the first time since 1975.

Kilimanjaro Live and The O2 will bring a wealth of acts and events together under one roof on two 12-hour days of classic rock music performances over multiple stages and have also confirmed Marillion, Steve Hackett, and Blackberry Smoke will be appearing over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2016.

Alice Cooper said, "Coming to the UK is always like coming home for us, fans in the UK are always high energy, always there. Headlining the very first Stone Free Festival at London's The O2 in June next year is an example of why we feel so welcome. It will be my only performance in the UK next year, so that makes it even more special. And as always with my show you can expect the unexpected!"

Rick Wakeman commented, "After the success of the 'Journey To The Centre Of The Earth' shows last year, I'm over the moon to have the opportunity to perform 'King Arthur' for the first time since 1975 with an orchestra and choir. It's going to be wonderful!"

The event will feature special acoustic performances, Q&As with headline performers, cinema screenings at the Stone Free picture show, a vinyl fair, specialist market stalls, classic album playbacks, Rock Royalty VIP packages, craft beers and street food and restaurants.

Day and Weekend and Rock Royalty tickets will go on general sale at 10am on Friday 20th November, and we will have links to buy them then.
