The prestigious Sofia Rocks Festival is starting Friday evening in the Bulgarian capital.

The fest will be held at the National "Vasil Levski" Stadium. Fans will be able to enjoy the new spectacular show of German heavy metal legend band Rammstein.

This is the fourth edition of Sofia rocks, expected to once again bring together rock and heavy metal aficionados from across Bulgaria and neighbor countries.

In a special message to their fans on Facebook, Rammstein say they were much looking forward to Sofia Rocks Festival to rock the ground.

It will be one of the last concerts of the band before they go on break.

Rammstein are coming to Sofia with 25 huge trucks with equipment.

Founder Richard Kruspe has said in an interview for the Bulgarian fans that as usual the band will act spontaneously and will decide on the spot how long they will perform and if they will stay at the stadium to party after the concert.

Other bands taking part in the fest include Hematom, Enslaved, and Bullet for My Valentine, which have one hour each to fire up the audience in that order of appearance.

Rammstein will take the stage at 10 pm.

The preparation for their pyro effects took the entire night before the show.

Rammstein have asked for freshly-baked high-quality coffee and dark tequila for their dressing rooms, which they want to be painted in light colors and to have many large mirrors, and for Veuve Cliсquot champagne for the backstage.

Bullet for My Valentine are arriving for the first time in Bulgaria to present their new album Temper Temper. The four from Wales have asked for sushi, traditional Bulgarian cuisine, honey, tea and 3 cases of mineral water.

Hematom are bringing their own LED screen in a promise to stage a phenomenal multi-media show, prepared specially for the Bulgarian audience.

Enslaved are betting on an impressive set of drums and have requested large quantities of beer.

For the most fervent fans the stadium opens doors at 2 pm Friday.
