quote:Further artists confirmed for 2018 edition of Roadburn Festival; including details of specially commissioned performance
As 2018 comes to an end, we have one final announcement for you - and it's a good one (if we do say so ourselves!). We're thrilled to bring you details of the first of our specially commissioned performances - this marks a big step forwards for us in terms of how we work with artists! We have such absolute faith in this project that it will open our main stage on the Thursday, effectively opening the entire festival! We can't wait...
We'd also like to offer a huge thank you to everybody who has supported Roadburn this year - whether you attended the 2017 edition, or have already picked up your ticket for 2018! Tickets are selling well and we're on course for another sell out edition of Roadburn, which we're always grateful for. Those of your who prefer to keep your Roadburn experience short and sweet - mark January 18 in your calendars as that's when our day tickets will go on sale.
Don't forget to join us over at our Facebook group if you haven't already!
Happy holidays and all the best for 2018!
-Walter, Becky and the whole Roadburn team
COMISSIONED PROJECT: WASTE OF SPACE ORCHESTRA
Artistic Director, Walter Hoeijmakers commented:
"Roadburn has always been about bringing people together, creating a network where the line between friend, fan, performer and artist is blurred. The very foundation of Roadburn is the community that it is built upon, around, and within. Alongside this, Roadburn has always sought to push the boundaries of creativity and expression.
These two defining facets of Roadburn have been brought together for a brand new project - or rather, two brand new projects - for 2018. For the first time, we have commissioned a two groups of entirely separate musicians to create music to be performed specifically at Roadburn. Today we’re thrilled to announce the first of those groups of musicians."
Familiar to most Roadburners, Dark Buddha Rising and Oranssi Pazuzu are combining their forces to write and perform a new concept piece especially for Roadburn 2018. The collaboration will be titled the Waste of Space Orchestra
The performance will include ten musicians onstage plus an original video accompaniment, designed to tell a parallel story with the music. The ten-part, one hour piece is a dive into the consciousnesses of three beings - all of whom are on a search for deeper truths in comprehending reality.
The Waste of Space Orchestra performance will open the main stage on the first day of Roadburn 2018 - Thursday, April 19.

BORIS AND STEPHEN O'MALLEY PERFORMING ABSOLUTEGO
It was Absolutego that kickstarted everything for Boris in 1996 and put that strange little band from Tokyo named after a Melvins song on the map. If you further exercise your memory, you will surely recall that Absolutego was - above everything - a drone album, one single track that took the listener on a strange, intense and very dark trip.
We've invited Boris to come and perform that whole Absolutego giant of sound, and they said yes. Joining them for this exclusive, one off performance is none other than Stephen O'Malley.
Boris with Stephen O'Malley will play Absolutego on Saturday, April 21 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

JACOB BANNON'S CURATION
“When discussing with Walter potential artists that fit the experimental spirit of Roadburn Festival, we both landed on the idea of Motorpsycho. I was first exposed to the band through their Demon Box album and have attempted to follow their unique twists and turns since. Their output is legendary and their need for experimentation has been inspiring to follow over the years. It is a true honor to help bring this diverse voice to the Roadburn audience.”

As part of Jacob Bannon’s curation, Godflesh will perform their groundbreaking album Selfless at Roadburn Festival 2018.
“I first experienced Godflesh when I picked up the Grindcrusher compilation from Earache Records as a teenager. The otherworldly power of Streetcleaner effected me in a way that I still find hard to describe. Since then I have been an avid follower of all music that Justin creates. Though I celebrate the expansive Broadrick catalog as a whole, it is his forays into melody under the Godflesh name I really connect with. Selfless as is an album that has everything for me. Punishing heaviness, incredible hooks, and limitless emotional depth. It is a true honor that they have agreed to play this album in its entirety at Roadburn 2018.”
- Jacob Bannon.

CURATION: THOU X THE BODY
“Since their inception I’ve been following Thou. Their restlessness and drive for experimentation has been inspiring to follow. The same goes for The Body. They’ve been such an incredible band to watch evolve from release to release. When they joined together on their Released From Love and You Whom I Have Always Hated collaborations I was floored. Together, they amplify the best parts of each band’s individual output. Making some of the heaviest and most intense music of the last few years. This collaboration is a must listen and perfect fit for Roadburn Festival.”
- Jacob Bannon

CURATION: FORGOTTEN TOMB
“I was first exposed to Forgotten Tomb through their incredible Springtime Depression album. To me, Herr Morbid’s vision was immediately appealing. Carrying a relatable sadness and inescapable darkness unequaled by other artists of the time. Since then I’ve been following his growth as an artist and the evolution of the band. I feel that artistically Forgotten Tomb are a perfect fit for the core Roadburn audience. They are a musical black hole that claims everything around it. I can’t wait to experience their set at Roadburn Festival 2018.”

ZONAL WITH MOOR MOTHER
Justin K. Broadrick is such an integral part of the Roadburn backbone by now that he needs little introduction. When it was announced that Justin and Kevin Martin, aka The Bug - who already made himself part of Roadburn with a staggering show alongside Dylan Carlson of Earth this year - would reunite under the name Zonal (a spiritual continuation from their iconic Techno Animal duo) it registered on our always-on radar. They will be joined by Camae Ayewa, the musician, activist and poet from Philadelphia who also goes by the name Moor Mother.

Since their earliest rumblings, Finnish cult doomsters Hooded Menace have held an astonishingly high profile in the underground realms. Their uniquely energetic take on the classic hybrid of doom and death metal has been invigorating audience since the release of their 2008 classic, Fulfill the Curse. We're thrilled to announce that the band will perform this classic album in full at Roadburn 2018.

Ja, voor mij ook, maar het is toch wel een aardige naam.

Daarnaast dan nog Ministry en wat ik hoorde van Sons of Apollo (1 of 2 nummers maar ) klonk dat ook niet slecht, progrock-achtig.quote:

quote:Taking place in The Hague from 6 to 8 April, the eighth edition of Rewire presents Tristan Perich as Young Artist in Focus, special projects by Juliana Huxtable, Arto Lindsay & Zs and Fatima Al Qadiri, as well as live performances by Panda Bear, SOPHIE, Beatriz Ferreyra and James Holden & The Animal Spirits.
We’ve also just confirmed the following artists for Rewire 2018:
Avalon Emerson, Irreversible Entanglements, Antenes presents Telegraph Music, Nadah El Shazly(with full band), Lanark Artefax live a/v, Quantum Natives presents Nexus (II), Stephan Meidell presents Metrics (with ensemble), AMMAR 808, FAKA, LYZZA and Laura Agnusdei.
Acknowledging the wider cultural and social context to this year’s music programme, Rewire 2018 will explore several themes. Sense of Self invites artists to examine the self in a contemporary, often digital context; Network Music critically reflects on increasingly unmappable and non-linear forms of community making made possible through online platforms; and Electronic Music Innovation in Historical Context brings together a variety of projects and collaborations that (re)examine the social and material history of electronic and electroacoustic music.
