Roadburn Festival has today announced a further sixteen performances for the 2022 edition of the festival which will take place this April 21-24.
Artistic Director, Walter Hoejmakers comments:
“Given recent positive news about coronavirus numbers falling in Europe, we are continuing with confidence that Roadburn will be able to go ahead. Of course we will keep an eye on any relevant measures or necessary regulations that will impact on the festival, but we are optimistic that we’ll be able to welcome people to Tilburg in April. We’re thrilled to be able to add this new selection of bands to the already stellar line up”
Indonesia’s SENYAWA will be making the trip to Tilburg to share their experimental music with the Roadburn crowd. The highly regarded duo combine an electrifying extended vocal technique with a handcrafted, homemade instrument that can be utilised in a variety of ways to create their distinctive sound.
2022 curators, Milena Eva and Thomas Sciarone (of Dutch band GGGOLDDD) have confirmed the next selection of bands to join their curated event. AMNESIA SCANNER will deliver a dose of their audio-visual art to Roadburn and join us on our continuing quest to redefine heaviness in new ways. DUMA will travel from Kenya to bring their genre-crushing performances to the Roadburn audience. Dutch music will be represented throughout the curation with the addition of KAMIEL THOMAS, SØWT and a collaboration between ALICIA BRETON FERRER and EUROBOY.
Delayed by the pandemic, we’ll finally welcome THE DEVIL’S TRADE to Roadburn as Dávid Makó performs his doom-infused folk songs, as well as joining forces with JOHN CXNNOR (featuring members of LLNN) to perform a special collaborative set inspired by the Terminator franchise.
PLATON KARATAEV will bring some moments of thoughtful contemplation, and FORNDOM will offer up an opportunity to disconnect from modern life and reconnect to our roots.
Further proving that Dutch music is in rude health, Roadburn will host a special, extended performance of TERZIJ DE HORDE, GGU:LL and BROEDER DIELEMAN – featuring the premiere of Terzij de Horde’s new album, and taking some interesting twists and turns along the way as this collaboration reaches its crescendo.
Founding member of retired black metal band Nihill, VITRIOL, will revisit the sound design of the groundbreaking albums from Nihill by presenting a live audiovisual performance dedicated to the drone and black ambient side of the band.
Roadburn will host the debut performances from two black metal projects that already have connections to the festival; both FREJA and SILVER KNIFE will step out into the unknown at Roadburn 2022.
And for those who want to bring their dancing shoes to Roadburn, ALICE HUBBLE will be performing her album Hexentanzplatz in full, whilst DEATHSOMNIA will provide the soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic world.
These artists have been added to a line up that also features ULVER, LINGUA IGNOTA, LITURGY, EMMA RUTH RUNDLE, DIE WILDE JAGD, 40 WATT SUN, RUSSIAN CIRCLES and many more. To read about these newly added artists please click the links below.
