>Roadburn Festival 2009

>Ah, the amazing Roadburn Festival 2009 in Tilburg, Holland. This is by far the very best festival I’ve ever been to: amazing bands, amazing venue with an amazing sound system, amazing people, hotel amazingly located a two minute walk from the amazing venue, amazing city, amazing smokes, amazing döner kebab… What more could you wish for? The line-up this year is fantastic, and hopefully we don’t get to see as much cancellations as last year.

This is a gathering of like minded bands and fans from around the world, joined together by a love of music. This is a celebration of tube-driven distortion and crackling electric guitars, a raising of musical consciousness and brotherly and sisterly love, a communion with THEE MIGHTY RIFF, a time and place to get high en mass and bask in the heaviness.

Check this out and worship eternally (names in bold (about 30 of them) are bands I really want to see, the rest I either don’t care or know that much about):

    I’ve read about it at some blog and heard rumours for so long. Apparently Roadburn is Amebix’s last gig on their upcoming tour. I think so anyway. Hope it’s all true. 

    Just fan! Läste ju om dem och kopplingen till Witchcraft/Graveyard i din artikel nyss. Coolt! Ännu ett band att kolla in alltså.
