For the fourth year running, Camden will be hosting one of the most exciting stoner/doom/sludge/psych gatherings in Europe, for a full weekend of fuzzed-out tunes, heaviness and partying in super friendly atmosphere.
DESERTFEST LONDON once again invited first-class headliners to join the bill: stoner rock pioneers SLEEP will treat the crowd to the finest smoked-out odysseys, with an exclusive headlining set at Koko’s on Sunday, while on Friday, Portland’s favorites RED FANG will prove to be the best partystarter anyone has ever dreamt of for the festival. On the apex of this weekend, the one and only sludge godfathers EYEHATEGOD fronted by the mighty Mike IX Williams will show us who the bosses are, while BRANT BJORK AND THE LOW DESERT PUNK BAND will make groove gauges explode in support of his new record “Black Power Flower”. Not to mention UK’s heavyweights ORANGE GOBLIN, who are set to make Camden’s ground tremble with some fiery heavy metal anthems, for a one-off 20th anniversary performance.
With more than 50 bands on the bill, the fourth DESERTFEST LONDON edition promises to be yet another memorable weekend for all the heavy fans out there.
