A New Roadburn Festival Campsite And B&B Flexotels: Urban Campsite Tilburg, Located In The City Centre

Posted on Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

When purchasing your festival tickets, you will also have the opportunity to buy campsite tickets – which is a little different this year!

Over the last decade, the official Roadburn campsite was situated outside of Tilburg at De Beekse Bergen in Hilvarenbeek. Many of you have gotten used to the shuttle busses and the safari park, but this year, we’ve chosen something that we hope will make your Roadburn trip even easier.

There’s a cool urban campsite in the city of Tilburg, located very near to the train station, and only a 15 minute walk from the 013 venue – it even has a huge supermarket only a few meters away. Some of you already stayed at the urban campsite (Stadscamping) this year, and had only good things to tell. We strongly believe that the urban campsite offers so much convenience, as it’s not only so close by, but we can also offer better rates, hence the change.

Bring your own tent, or even a camper van if you have one (please note there’s an upgrade ticket for camper vans), but if you prefer a little bit more comfort there will also be flexotel rooms at the urban campsite too. In these rooms you’ll find a towel and bed linen, a table with two chairs, storage space for clothes, a power supply so you can charge your cellphone, a heater, and lights!. You’ll get your own key so you can lock your room while you’re at the festival – a €100 cash deposit is required when collecting your keys, which will be returned when checking out (minus any damage costs incurred).

For everybody at the campsite there will be hot showers, clean toilets, cold drinking water, free parking, free wifi, and free phone charging. If you like, you can enjoy a healthy breakfast at the urban campsite for affordable prices.

Album of the Day: Gnaw Their Tongues – Abyss of Longing Throats

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Heathen Harvest: Gnaw Their Tongues have delivered another hauntingly mechanized full-length album which will leave a range of effects on all listeners, varying from trembling night terrors, violent fantasies, and an overall coating of uncomfortableness. Mories, the solo conspirator behind Gnaw Their Tongues, holds a huge passion […]

What Is Best In Life? The Official Roadburn 2016 Artwork By Becky Cloonan

Posted on Thursday, September 10th, 2015

We at Roadburn are ecstatically proud to unveil the official artwork for Roadburn 2016, lovingly wrought by acclaimed comic-book illustrator Becky Cloonan who will be following in the illustrious footsteps of such predecessors as Michel Langevin, Costin Chioreanu and Arik Roper. Born in Pisa, Italy, in 1980 and first coming […]

Album of the Day: My Dying Bride – Feel The Misery

Posted on Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Fans of My Dying Bride know what to expect – with nearly 25 years of consistently stellar material, it’s reasonable to think that their latest epic dirge, Feel The Misery would easily meet expectations if not outright exceed them; they’ve rewritten the history of […]

Album of the Day: Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving – Yield To Despair

Posted on Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Like a continuation from something unheard, Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving plunge into immediate doom with crushed bass and drums at a death march; any introduction for the uninitiated is left to imagery from the album art and title, Yield To Despair. And yield we must […]

Album of the Day: Behold! The Monolith – Architects of the Void

Posted on Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: There’s no getting away with it really. Heavy metal and all its sub-genres is hardly the most subtle of things and for every band who attempts something a bit more delicate, there will be ten bands who bludgeon it back down with oversized riffs […]

Album of the day: Khemmis – Absolution

Posted on Monday, September 7th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Invisible Oranges: There has been a deluge of upstart doom bands over the last decade, some of them great (Kongh, Pallbearer, Orchid) and many others not so much (seriously, there are way too many to name). The oversaturation point for low and slow approaches quickly, so new […]

Album of the day: Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper

Posted on Friday, September 4th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Looking at the ascendancy of the UK’s Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (often stylized with a lowercase ‘d’ on the last word) over the last half-decade is like staring into the abyss of our own worst impulses, and it seems unlikely the band would have […]

Album of the Day: Dead to a Dying World – Litany

Posted on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: For a moment, you think that the onslaught is over, that after eight minutes of dramatic strings and overdriven guitars, punishing drums and punished vocals, the big Texas metal band Dead to a Dying World will at last offer a respite.  After all, they’ve already detailed […]

Album of the Day: Wildlights – S/T

Posted on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, here is a story of two buddies, one a drummer from Thunderlip!, one a frontman and guitarist for ASG, never quite being able to make time to write and perform together. Wildlights (formerly known as Crusades) marks the point in […]
