Ho-Ho-Holy Shit, have we got an early Christmas treat for you! Hot off the heels of our two gigantic headliner announcements, of Slo Burn and Sleep, we're throwing over a dozen more huge names your way.

After lying low in recent years, conjurers of atmospheric black metal Wolves In The Throne Room are back on the warpath and headed straight for Desertfest 2017! The Weaver brothers' ethereal yet brutal music is a powerful experience live, which you shouldn't miss at.

Doom pioneers Saint Vitus make their Desertfest London debut, with founding vocalist Scott Reagers in tow. With some of the genre's most iconic tracks to their name, be glad you weren't Born Too Late to see Saint Vitus grace the Desertfest stage.

Not content to merely headline this year's festival with Slo Burn, stoner rock's favourite frontman brings the John Garcia Band to Desertfest 2017. With Garcia's solid back catalogue, from Kyuss right through to his upcoming solo acoustic record, we expect the whole venue to be shaking when the John Garcia band take stage.

This year's Human_Disease_Promo / WhenPlanetsCollide Stage is already a cut above the rest, with the announcement of its first band, Scissorfight. The returning heroes of the crustier sides of sludge rocked up this year after a decade long rest with the fantastic Chaos Country EP - and by the sounds of it haven't skipped a beat.


Jamming psychsters Stoned Jesus will be playing a special set celebrating their second album Seven Thunders Roar. Though only half a decade young, the album is a masterpiece well on the way to being considered iconic. Don't miss your chance to hear the album played in full, back to back at Desertfest.

They'll be joined on the bill by forces of brutality; in the form of Jacob Bannon of Converge's project Wear Your Wounds, progressive sludge metal act Earth Ship and the Sabbath-meets-Eyehategod earthquake of Iron Witch.

London's own walking, talking slice of Palm Desert, Steak, are set to riff you a new one, with Dead Lord providing a lethal shot of 70's worship and Pontiak will be there to provide you a psych induced freakout.

And to top it off we've got the pure insanity of Backwoods Payback and one of the UK's most exciting acts, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard.

But the party doesn't stop with Sleep this year. We've invited Chron Goblin to play us out in style at the official Desertfest 2017 After Party.

With still more bands to announce, Desertfest 2017 is looking ready to be our best yet. Don't miss your chance to hit up the underground's biggest party. Book your tickets today.
