Royal Prospect – Lights Out!
Fri Dec 06, 2019

Royal Prospect is an international rock band formed in Sweden by brothers Oscar and Gustav and their childhood friends Hannes and Hannes. As songwriters as well as performers their music and stage performance has soared them into the global spotlight by winning the Swedish competition of Emergenza, the world’s leading festival for unsigned bands. The success at Emergenza led them to obtain bookings at top Swedish events and Croatia’s biggest international festival INmusic where they played a set between the bands Of Monsters and Men and Placebo. 

Royal Prospect was officially discovered at Scandinavia's biggest showcase festival, Live at Heart Sweden, which has quickly been gaining a reputation for breaking indie bands on a global level. They were immediately signed and are now co-managed by Peter Åstedt (MusicHelp) and Tommy Rehn (Rehn Music Group).
