Like every year, ROADBURN FESTIVAL impresses with a really extensive lineup of well-chosen bands in doom, sludge, post-metal, and more. Always an opportunity to get up to speed on what’s best in underground heavy music at the moment, and enjoy some of the best performers – including a few rarities exclusive to the fest – in the scene. More reasons to attend one of the biggest alternative festivals in Europe after the jump.
ROADBURN FESTIVAL 2016
From April 14th to 17th in Tilburg (Netherlands)
Among the bands who are certainly not to be missed, we’ll mention With The Dead (note that Lee Dorrian is RB’s special curator this year), Neurosis‘ 30-year anniversary performance, Converge, Paradise Lost, mythic Bang!, Gentlemans Pistols, French doom-mongers Hangman’s Chair, forest folkers Hexvessel (with Grave Pleasures/Beastmilk’s frontman), Mondo Drag, Relapse Records’ latest psych signing Ecstatic Vision, as well as goosebump-inducing acoustic sets by Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till.
