DESERTFEST LINE-UP DETAILS ANNOUNCED
The line-up details for Desertfest have now been announced. For those of you that live under a rock and don’t know, Desertfest is a new festival organised by the guys at Desertscene Rock that will run for three days from April 6th to the 8th over the Easter weekend in Camden. The festival, which looks set to be the UK equivalent of Roadburn with a quality line-up to match, or maybe even exceed its Dutch cousin, occupies three venues on each day; the larger Underworld, the slightly smaller Purple Turtle and the slightly smaller again Black Heart. All three venues are within walking distance of each other…with the Black Heart and the Underworld within spitting distance.
The weekend features a pretty stunning array of bands from across the stoner/doom/psych/sludge/classic rock spectrums including Orange Goblin, Corrosion Of Conformity, Karma To Burn, Church Of Misery, Roadsaw, Black Pyramid, Rotor, Leafhound, Truckfighters, Black Cobra, Zoroaster, Asteroid, Gorilla, Valiant Thorr, Gentlemans Pistols, Orchid, Samsara Blues Experiment, Lord Vicar, Greenleaf and many more…50+ bands over the whole weekend.
We are very pleased, surprised and honoured to announce we will be headlining the Black Heart stage on Saturday 7th April. Timings have been arranged to allow for minimal overlap between bands so Orange Goblin will finish in the Underworld by 10.15 then it’s a short walk to the Black Heart to catch our set then when we’re done it’s a 5 minute walk to the Purple Turtle to catch Slabdragger kick out their sludgey doom.
See you all there!!!
