Bulgaria's Rock Capital Kavarna is expecting the "metal kings" of the Manowar band, who are going to open the annual "Kaliakra Rock Fest" Saturday.

The group has stated that they will break the record in Bulgaria for the longest running metal concert.

Manowar are rehearsing with Sofia's Philharmonic Orchestra - they will perform several pieces together during the concert.

Rock legend Alice Cooper is also expected to arrive in Kavarna for the first time. Kavarna is the starting point of Cooper's 2008 tour. He had stated that his show was so amazing that no one would dare to come on stage after he was done. Cooper's concert is going to be held Sunday. The rock star is also expected to be seen playing golf at the "Black Sea Rama" golf course near Kavarna.

Kavarna is hosting "Kaliakra Rock Fest" for the third time this year. Just in three years the fest became known as one of the biggest rock events on the Balkans. The fest is going to be held on July 5, 6, and 7. Some of the biggest names from the world of Rock will, once again, gather in Kavarna.

The spectacular concert of In Flames and Slayer will bring closure to the event.

The event's organizers had said that the percussions of Slayer are going to be transported from Germany. Technical requirements for the percussions are so complicated that no one on the Balkans could deal with them and this was the reason why they had to be specially transferred from Germany.

Slayer who have two Grammy "Best Metal Performance" awards are arriving in Bulgaria Sunday.

The Swedish band In Flames, performing as Slayer's support band are also visiting Bulgaria for the first time.
