We have a whopper of an update for all you Desertheads: one headliner and 12 news acts to add to the line-up! First and foremost, Desertfest London is honoured to welcome Swedish doom legend WITCHCRAFT as a headliner for our upcoming edition. It will be the first time in a decade for them to hit London, and we're truly elated host this long-awaited return next May! Let's pick up the pace with the bludgeoning sludge-punk sounds of PISSED JEANS, the tongue-in-cheek chroniclers of these mad times. We also welcome back the unholy trio CONAN for a very special performance, playing the seminal 'Monnos' album in full. After last year’s unforeseen travel issues, we are thrilled to have the Greek psychedelic groovers NAXATRAS on the bill again. British sludge pioneers RAGING SPEEDHORN will also be back, There will be some celestial SoCal vibes with San Diego’s SACRI MONTI and their far-out otherworldly jams, bringing along their equally zonked-out pals MONARCH. Next up is HUNTSMEN with their progressive concoction of doom metal and Americana, and Arizona’s SPIRIT ADRIFT who effortlessly carry the torch for traditional doom with lashings of classic '80s heavy metal. The Belgian scene will be present as well, with FIRE DOWN BELOW's excellent fusion of stoner fuzz and '90s grunge, alongside instrumental space-psych drifters GROTTO. To top it off with some local bangers: Oxfordshire riff hounds DESERT STORM will deliver a shock-wave of groovy stoner-metal, and London's very own MORAG TONG will showcase their dynamic take on psychedelic doom as they’ve quickly slotted themselves into our ‘ones to watch’ list. Phew! Take a moment to catch your breath, then run don't walk to grab those Weekend tickets!
