Roadburn 2017 To Feature The Ultimate Experimental Showdown – The Bug vs Dylan Carlson of Earth

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

If this was boxing, it could well be a title fight, the prize being not a belt, but the title of most feverishly creative individual in experimental music. Fortunately, although their collaboration signifies a certain amount of clashing between disparate and often totally separate genres, this is not a fight […]

Mekanïk Destruktïw Kommandöh: Magma To Play John Dyer Baizley’s 2017 Curated Roadburn Event

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Unequivocally one of the most talked about moments in the history of Roadburn was Magma‘s overwhelming performance at the 2014 festival. Invited by Opeth‘s Mikael Åkerfeldt, these seminal progressive rock pioneers went down a storm, leaving bands and attendees gasping for air, as it was such an exhausting emotional rollercoaster […]

Deafheaven To Become Part of The Roadburn Family At Our 2017 Festival

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

When Deafheaven released their debut album Roads to Judah back in 2011 they probably were not expecting to be at the center of many heated debates and discussion a couple of years later. Critically acclaimed and widely discussed by black metal purists, shoegaze fanatics and post-rock devotees, the Californian 5-piece […]

Zu Return To Roadburn In 2017 With Their Wild Experimentation

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

We’ve missed Zu! It’s impossible not to, even if we had this Italian three-piece on the bill every year we’d say the same thing. We miss them already five minutes after each frenzied, euphoric show they play, each of them a tour de force for both band and audience, each […]

Dälek To Become First Ever Hip Hop Band To Play Roadburn

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Hip-hop is not, quite frankly, a genre we’ve thought of exploring much before at Roadburn. But as with any other style of music, exploration is the key, and eventually something will always stand out in surprising ways. Such is the case with New Jersey’s dälek, who have been a name […]

Subrosa To Perform “…Battle of Ages” In Its Entirety at Roadburn 2017; SubRosa Subdued Showcasing The band’s Softer Side

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages is an album that hits you with full force from the very first time you hear it. Subsequent listens unveil layer after layer of bold creativity and sonic explorations that stay with you long after the needle is lifted and the vinyl […]

Inter Arma To Appear Wild and Untamed at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Inter Arma stopped off in Tilburg back in 2014; the band were on tour through Europe and played a euphoric set at the then-smaller Green Room at the 013 venue. Those stood in the centre of the room at the beginning of the set were shifted on the tide of […]

Free Spirits In An Age of Conformity, Crippled Black Phoenix To Play Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

The world of heavy music is very fond of categorisation. As much as every band prides themselves on at least attempting to do something different from prevailing trends, there is nearly always a comfortable pigeonhole awaiting them. But not every band, of course. Whether through the joyously eccentric musical vision […]
