Roadburn Festival 2022 - First Line Up Announcement

Roadburn Festival has today made its first line up announcement for the 2022 edition, which will take place between April 21-24 in Tilburg, The Netherlands. The majority of tickets to the festival have already been sold, but a limited number are available on sale from today on. Confirmed bands are listed down under.

Roadburn's artistic director, Walter Hoeijmakers comments: "After two years of not being able to host a physical festival, we're extremely excited to actually return in 2022. Given the circumstances, everything about this has been a real challenge, but we wanted to make sure that next year’s Roadburn will be a stronghold for the forward-thinking artists we all love so much - whether genre-defining established acts or young, up-and-coming artists. We really want to reconnect them with our international community - artistically, musically and physically - and to see them do what they do best: be on stage. We want to give them a platform in front of a live audience again, as it’s time to celebrate the music they’ve written over the past two years, or the much acclaimed albums that helped us through these strange, unprecedented times.

"It's equally exciting to have Milena Eva and Thomas Sciarone as our 2022 curators; their commissioned music project for Roadburn Redux, '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."

"Redefining heaviness" lmao.

I mean promoting a lineup of metal-lite/-adjacent bands/projects and labeling them as "heavy" is exactly what redefining heaviness is, so at least they're upfront about their efforts.
