The Roadburn festival is arranged at the 013 Poppodium venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands between April 21-24. Thousands of music lovers from every corner of the world travel to experience the friendly spirit of Roadburn and enjoy several performances of a number of bands and artists.  Every year Roadburn choices the official curator who picks up their own favorite bands to Roadburn.

The curators of 2022 are Milena Eva & Thomas Sciarone being the duo of GGGOLDDD. The duo is going to perform This Shame Should Not Be Mine for the first time live in front of the Roadburn audience. GGGOLDDD has a strong bond and connection to Roadburn. Their role as curators was nothing, but obvious. As the artistic director of Roadburn Walter Hoeijmakers says :

“This Shame Should Not Be Mine, elevated GGGOLDDD to a whole new level, as it made such a huge impact – musically, emotionally, and spiritually. The intimate connection felt by everyone online will be greatly amplified at Roadburn 2022, and we could think of no one better than Milena and Thomas to get us all reconnected.”

During these four days, there are a lot of interesting amazing artists, musicians, bands and performers. As for the line-up of Roadburn 2022 in general, it is going to a mind blowing experience again. Just take a glance at the line-up :

It is kind of hard to pick up one or two certain bands or artists as all of them definitely will offer amazing and unforgettable performances. Roadburn has always brought interesting yet small and yet unknown artists to the festival. Who knows which of them may be the next new big thing. For example, Ghost and Twin Temple enjoy the massive following and success thru the whole world nowadays, but remember when they played at Roadburn. Black metal, doom metal and other types of music, create the unique climate of what Roadburn is known for and is all about. Several bands and artists also perform one kind of special set by playing their rare songs or the entire album for the Roadburn audience.  Besides the music, meeting people and fans is a big part of the Roadburn spirit when the whole area of 013 is entirely packed by music lovers from all over the world.

The four-day event gives all of us an unforgettable journey into the world of music and friendship, which all is needed in the malicious world. As the mastermind and director of Roadburn Walter Hoeijmakers perfectly sums it up :

Welcome to Roadburn and enjoy the music and meet friends.
