Desertfest 2020

May 1, 2020 May 3, 2020

Making their first UK appearance in five years, Master Of Reality will return to London for their Desertfest debut as 2020 headliners. Their effortless combo of hard-rock blues with an experimentally progressive tinge makes no apologies for not sticking within the stylised box listeners would assume.

Some welcome returns come in the form of North Carolina favourites Corrosion Of Conformity – their Southern stomp slides down as easy as the smoothest whiskey known to man. Comrades since the inception of Desertfest, the mighty Orange Goblin will join us to celebrate their colossal 25th anniversary.

The desert daze continues with yet another iconic figure making an appearance, Brant Bjork will bask in psychedelic sunshine as his quintessential rhythm penetrates through Camden.

High-octane party starters The Picturebooks will supply a foot-stomping frenzy that truly defies logic for a two-piece, whilst London’s Green Lung effortlessly walk the astral plane of psychedelic occult doom

The final additions, for now, proudly showcase some more home-grown talent, describing themselves as “hyper-lysergic space sludge” The Brothers Keg is morphing into a creature worthy of more than just attention but a serious admiration. Horror-fanatics Possessor combines thrash, punk and flurry of fuzz into a witch’s brew of unhinged ferocity best witnessed live and loud. To round things off we welcome Black Orchids whose otherworldly soundscapes will take listeners on a journey of groove and reflection. Many more acts still to be announced.

Wristband collection will be from Greenland Place, outside The Black Heart. You’ll just need your DICE ticket or email confirmation (photo ID may be required). You can still purchase tickets and gain entry quickly without a smartphone.
