Doom, stoner and psychedelia will hit the roads and venues of Camden in exactly two weeks’ time. The organisers of London’s Desertfest released the stage times today and you can drool over the awesome line-up and start organising your fest schedule here.
Reece Tee, organiser of Desertfest, talked to us about 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.”
