Desertfest London announced the first acts for the 2016 edition in Camden, including the first headliner for next year’s proceedings. It’s no easy feat to try and top your biggest success to date, but the festival is ready. Here’s a fistful of acts to get you excited for what the fest has in store:
Legendary cult leaders, Electric Wizard will return to the capital to pay homage and headline a festival that is truly inspired by their existence, bringing their genre-defining sounds to Desertfest revellers for the first time in its five-year UK history.
US heavyweights Elder will also join the bill, taking listeners on a sonic journey that perfectly merges classic stoner with mind-bending psychedelic melodies. For those that like their riffs a little heavier (read: utterly crushing), UK favourites Conan are once again gracing us with their brutal presence. And to top that all off, historic metal heroes Raging Speedhorn will be hitting the stage, bringing us a guttering blast from the past, alongside Candlelight Records very own doom mongers, Witchsorrow.
Now in its fifth consecutive year, this mammoth offering of stoner, doom, sludge, psych and all its sub-genres will take place from April 29th – May 1st across multiple venues, in the legendary London musical hub of Camden Town.
