Andy Little continues his coverage of this year’s London Desertfest with his review of the final day, which includes Hark, Elephant Tree, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Sleep.
HRH Prog V is a resounding success, with headliners Gong, Hawkwind and Wishbone Ash all turning in superlative sets.
Saturday’s Desertfest swings with with laid-back vibes among colossal distorted riffage.
As ever Desertfest was a blast, and I saw some great acts, but although it’s getting to be almost a cliche to say it now, the best thing about Desertfest is the atmosphere.
It’s been a great time here in Copenhagen and though it is hard to find a festival that makes it worth the trip, we for sure hope that more people chose this event next year. The environment, the pricing, the acts and everything is perfectly fine about this festival. A great choice and hopefully the organisation can pull it off again to put it up.
A week after Roadburn and still hungry for that riff, so off to Copenhagen for the Northern Discomfort festival. The fest has its second edition this year at community house Ungdomshuset, which is a place for art and activism with a bunch of simple rules dealing with racism, sexism and all those other things that frankly make you an asshole.
It looked an impressive bill before the show, and looking back I realise that I saw 13 great sets in one day… It took a good few days to properly get over this show, and I wasn’t even drinking.
Raw Power is on it’s way; if you’re missing it you better have a fucking good reason, otherwise you’ll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but soon and for the rest of your life.
Our metal editor Sander van den Driesche went on his second Roadburn Festival pilgrimage. And he completely fell in love with the festival this time.
Desertfest 2017 – Sunday’s line-up preview.
The second day of this year’s edition features excellent line ups at each of the four venues in Camden, and indeed it was the first day of the weekend to sell out, which considering the strength of the rest of the bill is some going.
Yep, whatever your preference, commercial or cult, there is something for everyone on Friday at Desertfest, Camden.

I’m coming back to Liverpool from the big smoke for one weekend in April and here’s why:

As it celebrates its fifteenth year, Spencer Blohm gives us a run down of what to expect at 2016’s Austin City Limits Music Festival.
The weather gods hate math rock. That’s the only conclusion you can really come to after a third (out of four) successive wet Arctangent. It’s starting to feel vindictive but it didn’t distract too much from another blinding festival. By Dan Salter
