For the fourth year running, Camden will be hosting one of the most exciting stoner/doom/sludge/psych gatherings in Europe, for a full weekend (24-26 April 2015) of fuzzed-out tunes, heaviness and partying in very friendly atmosphere. This April, Desertfest will not only see the addition of a brand new Prog Stage, but the festival will also expand from three to six venues across Camden: Koko, The Electric Ballroom, The Underworld, Black Heart, Jazz Café and Purple Turtle.
Today, the festival has released the day splits which you can check out in detail here. Day tickets are also now available for sale. Get your day tickets here or weekend tickets while they are still there!
Reece Tee, organiser of Desertfest, recently talked to us about organising this event: “Being a huge music fan and playing in a band myself, I was very aware of the lack of well-run gigs and festivals catering for stoner and doom. I wanted to set something up that really gave a home to the underground scene in the UK.”
He continued: “I play guitar in the band Steak. I think knowing what a small underground band goes through and the passion it takes to persist in a band, I really wanted Desertfest to be there for them, to help them get exposure and give a platform. The festival wouldn’t be there without the bands, so hopefully at Desertfest every band gets the same respect if they are headlining or opening the festival.”
