GREEK GODS PLANET OF ZEUS TO BRING THE THUNDER TO DESERTFEST!
As Greece’s premier underground rock band, Planet of Zeus are probably the only band on Earth that can justify calling themselves Planet of Zeus, and luckily they’re one of Europe’s grooviest riff-merchants so we’re delighted to be bringing them back to Desertfest in 2018.
From the isle of Crete, where Zeus hid to avoid being consumed by his father, Cronus, to their native Athens, Planet of Zeus have been kicking up an (un)godly stoner storm for almost 20 years and they show no signs of slowing down. In 2015 they supported their heroes Clutch on their European tour and last year they released their fourth album Loyal to the Pack, an album which demonstrated how much the band’s sound has evolved and matured since their 2008 debut Eleven the Hard Way, featuring mellower songs alongside their usual brand of stoner rock.
Having last played Desertfest in 2013 (after having to cancel an appearance in 2016) we can’t wait to catch the new and improved Planet of Zeus in 2018.
