Roadburn 2017: Running Orders!

Posted on Thursday, March 16th, 2017

We know you’ve been patiently (and sometimes not so patiently!) waiting for us to unveil the running orders for Roadburn 2017 – and they’re finally HERE!

This is the part that we agonise over every year; it takes days and days to settle on a running order that works and makes sense in the context of Walter‘s artistic vision of Roadburn. It pains us that clashes are an unfortunate necessity of putting on a festival like this, but we hope that everybody is able to create their own unique experience of Roadburn out of what we have put together here.

Because we have Crippled Black Phoenix playing early on the Thursday afternoon, we have anticipated high numbers of attendees showing up for that, and made provisions! You will be able to swap your ticket for a wristband on Wednesday evening between 6.30pm and 11pm.

The box office will open again at 11am on Thursday morning, so if you’ve got time to kill, why not pick up your wristband before heading for your first Roadburn beer?

“I’m equally excited and relieved to unveil the artwork that I’ve made for Roadburn 2017 today. Creating this painting has been a tremendous labor of love these past few months, while curating the musical aspect of the festival. Suffice it to say, the amount of time it takes for both […]

Posted on Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

On Friday, April 21, the Cul de Sac will serve as the very centre of our overloaded brains once more, as Amsterdam (NL)-based Jonkoklapper will gladly extend the 420 celebrations by offering a drugged-out sort of ritualistic doom-pop. Appealing to any dopesmoker making the pilgrimage to Roadburn, Jonkoklapper might be […]

Posted on Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Belgium remains such a fertile breeding ground – this hotbed of musical creativity ranges from tech-core and shoegaze to post-rock, and virtually everything in between – […]
