Californian blues-rockers RIVAL SONS have been confirmed for this year's notorious High Voltage festival, which takes place on July 23rd and 24th at London's Victoria Park in the UK.

RIVAL SONS have also just been confirmed for Main Square Festival in France as well as Belgium's Rock Werchter - one of the largest annual rock festivals in Europe.  The band will be performing on the Main Stage of High Voltage on Saturday, July 23rd and will be playing alongside an impressive line-up of artists, including JUDAS PRIEST, QUEENSRŸCHE, DREAM THEATER, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, JETHRO TULL and more.

RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:

"We're extremely fired up to be part of one of the hardest rocking festivals...  HIGH VOLTAGE!  Playing alongside pioneers like Judas Priest and Jethro Tull is a great, great honor.  This will also be the last show on our tour supporting Judas Priest, capping it off quite nicely."
