Fans of rock music are in for a treat and a feast of classic, modern and contemporary hits during Rock In The Forest V to be held on August 26 at Chateau Buskett.

Rock in the Forest V is a concert featuring hits from bands like Coldplay, Aerosmith, Prince, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Queen, Muse, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Green Day, Kiss, Rihanna and many more.

The concert, which is in its fifth edition, will feature guest singer Ivan Filletti and guitarist David Cassar Torregiani for the first time, alongside local favourites Gianni Zammit, ex Cruz vocalist Marilyn Mifsud, Georgius Mifsud (Shades of Green), and Simaria Galea – all of whom took part in the last edition of the event. The concert will feature also some surprise appearances.

The event will also feature another one-off performance of former popular band Corkskrew, following last year’s appearance at Rock in the Forest, with singer Diane Micallef, bassist Cliff Smith and drummer Franco Aloisio performing some of their tracks together with the core band.

The Rock in the Forest core band features event founder David Perotti (guitars, vocals) and his children Kristina Perotti (drums) and Andrew Perotti, guitarists Carl Tanti and Georgius Mifsud, bassists Cliff Smith and Cheyenne Belle Xuereb (Jules Forest), keyboardist Sergio Bellizzi and drummer Franco Aloisio. The band Timesheets will be supporting act.

“This is the fifth edition if Rock in the Forest, an event which was originally held in my house garden with my kids and a few friends. Following the great feedback of that home gig, we said we should find a proper venue. Subsequently, we moved to Chateau Buskett and the rest is history,” said David Perotti.

Entrance is €7 as a donation and proceeds will be in aid of Dr Klown, an NGO which provides hospitalised children positive distraction and stress relief.

Doors open at 8pm. Table bookings are available and the restaurant and bar area will be open all evening. Parking facilities are available at Chateau Buskett.
