DESERTFEST LONDON 2016:
+ many more to be announced
APRIL 29TH – MAY 1ST
CAMDEN, LONDON UK
Desertfest are pleased to announce the first acts for the 2016 London edition, including the first headliner for next year’s proceedings. It’s no easy feat to try and top your biggest success to date, but we’re ready. Here’s a fistful of acts to get you excited for what we have in store…
Legendary cult leaders, Electric Wizard will return to the capital to pay homage, and headline, a festival that is truly inspired by their existence. Having filled the Roundhouse to its rafters earlier this year, the Wizard will be bringing their genre-defining sounds to Desertfest revellers for the first time in our five-year UK history.
U.S. heavyweights Elder will also join the bill, taking listeners on a sonic journey that perfectly merges classic stoner with mind-bending psychedelic melodies. For those that like their riffs a little heavier (read: utterly crushing…) UK favourites Conan are once again gracing us with their brutal presence. And to top that all off, historic metal heroes Raging Speedhorn will be hitting the stage, bringing us a guttering blast from the past, alongside Candlelight Records very own doom mongers, Witchsorrow.
Now in its fifth consecutive year, this mammoth offering of stoner, doom, sludge, psych and all it’s sub-genres will take place from April 29th – May 1st across multiple venues, in the legendary London musical hub of Camden Town.
Keep your eyes peeled and your wits sharp, there’s much more to come…
