The project “History Rocks” by the Swedish band Sabaton

History Rocks” project hits important milestone
Over 100 museums to participate in the worldwide premiere of “The War To End All Wars – The Movie”

The countdown begins. With just over one month left until Sabaton’s “History Rocks” museum initiative kicks off, the band’s project has reached a significant milestone. Over 100 museums from 27 territories have now confirmed their participation in the worldwide premiere of “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” this November, and the list keeps growing.See the full list of participating museums https://movie.sabaton.net/.

Unveiled on June 12 of this year, “History Rocks” is a result of the band’s urge to help museums around the world. The mission of this charitable initiative is to amplify the visibility of museums worldwide and to encourage a fresh, untapped audience of metalheads and history enthusiasts to contribute to their local museums.

Band manager and bassist, Pär Sundström comments:“Reaching over 100 museums is an important milestone. We wanted to create something that makes our fans visit and help their local museums, and I’m beyond happy to see that it’s working. We’re grateful to anyone who suggested a museum to us by using our “Suggest a museum” form on our movie’s website. The form is now closed following thousands of suggestions, but museums are still urged to contact us if they wish to participate. It means a lot to us to see how many involved have been enthusiastic, both fans and museums.”

The global premiere of “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” will take place between November 4-19, 2023, in the two weeks surrounding the 105th anniversary of Armistice Day. Museums worldwide are gearing up to showcase this film in their own way – some have opted for single screenings, some will be hosting multiple, and others will be combining their screenings with World War 1-related exhibits and events. The beauty of this project is that those participating have the creative freedom to shape their event any way they deem fit and all revenue generated from ticket sales goes straight back to the museum hosting the screening.

As the “History Rocks” project surges forward with over 100 museums on board, it stands as a testament to the profound impact of the unification of music and history to inspire and educate audiences worldwide.

The Regional History Museum in Pazardzhik will be hosting a film screening and accompanying exhibition on the participation of the Pazardzhik region in the First World War. The film will be broadcasted on four different dates: November 4th, 7th, 9th, and 11th of 2023. The premiere will be on November 4th at 3 PM, with a special performance by the band Voice and Fingers, playing Valley of Death – acoustic. The other three screenings will take place on November 7th and 9th at 6 PM, and on November 11th at 3 PM.

The exhibition will showcase photos, military uniforms, and weapons, both Bulgarian army and trophy weapons, as well as personal belongings and military equipment. The exhibition will be dedicated to the participation of the population of the Pazardzhik region in the First World War, specifically the 27th Chepinski Infantry Regiment, which was part of the Second Infantry Thracian Division. This regiment participated in the defense of Doiran in the summer of 1916 and in the battles on the Bitola field and at the bend of the Cherna River.

Please note that the auditorium where the film will be screened has a limited capacity of 40 seats. Entry will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis until all seats are filled. Tickets for the film will only be available for purchase at the door and cannot be booked in advance. The price for the tickets is 6 BGN.
