Organizers Balkan Entertainment Company have announced that they have no limits set at the volume by local authorities and that audiences will be crushed by a 200 kW sound system and over 400 kW of light.

5 trucks are expected later on in the week for Judas Priest's lazer show, which has been massive on their current "Epitaph" tour, set to be the last big global tour of their decade-long career.

Sofia Rocks 2011 will take place July 8 at the Balkarska Armiya Stadium in the Borissova Gradina park in Sofia. Entry time is 1 pm, the show starts at 4 pm.
