Desertfest London 2012, Stoner, Doom and HardRock!

Fan of filthty Doom, Stoner and Sludge beware!
The London Desertfest is coming back for a really thrilling second edition.

The festival has been created 2 years ago by promoters Daniel Kinsey and Savile Row and has already sparked the creation of a new Berlin edition. The partnership between the Deserfest and promoter company Sounds of Liberation is creating the first Stoner, Doom european festival in europe. The growth of this kind of specialised festivals reflect well the trend of the Heavy Metal market with the revival of 70's Hard Rock, Doom and Stoner genres and the explosion of Sludge these last five years.

Orange Goblin, with their new album A Eulogy for the Damned, Corrosion of Conformity with their new upcoming album and japanese Doom legendary Church of Misery will headline a really impressive international line up which balances well between underground scene and mainstream (if we can talk about mainstream).

The festival will take Camden town for the weekend of the 6, 7 and 8th april in 3 differents venues, the Underworld, the Purple Turtle and the Black Hearth for 70 pounds the 3 days pass. The small size of the venues will bring a really cool athmosphere to the festival which will change of classic open air event.

Metal Hammer, Classic Rock magasines (Futur publishing limited for both of them), and Orange amps will sponsor the festival this year. As usual, Jagermeister, following its communication strategy with the sponsor of Heavy Metal bands and festivals will be part of the Desertfest.
I am really thrilled about this Desertfest London and will obviously review it!
