Roadburn Festival 2020 - Announce Curators, Commissioned Music And First Acts


For those eager to take the Roadburn pilgrimage once again, the poster by Dutch artist Douwe Dijkstra, and dates for the 2020 edition were made public while the 2019 edition was ongoing, but it is only now that we get some confirmed acts, including two curators and three commissioned performances.




This year Roadburn will have not one, but two curators which will handpick part of the lineup. These will be Emma Ruth Rundle, whose contribution will be called Gilded Cage, and James Kent (of Perturbator).

James Kent will also join forces with Cult Of Luna's Johannes Persson for a commissioned performance of a yet unmentioned kind. Also of a collaborative type, we have A Hymn Of Loss And Hope courtesy of Bismuth and Vile Creature. We also have Jo Quail who will present The Cartographer along with the Rotterdam New Trombone Collective.

Not a commissioned act nor a curator but still important news is Julie Christmas's set.

Tickets will go on sale on the 24th of September, but their price is yet undisclosed.

Of course it comes down to personal taste. And it's great, that there was a whole day for dutch bm, but I didn't really find any of that out with the advertising they did, and paying a few hundred euros, losing a few days and having to travel a while to see bands I have never heard of is just not feasible for me.


Hey man Dont imply that im making fun of someone for just wanting a line-up they like. Its a valid point.
That is not what I was pointing out. Im just pointing what is and isnt true. Like ERR just being at Roadburn twice so far and not even in a row.
true abusers? Yob has been playing for years in a row during the early 10s (with double sets and all). I got quickly tired of the stoner doom thing because of it. I understand people that want that though.

I quote this passage because, im sorry man but its false. They did talk many times on fb posts and on the Roadburn site about the "Maelstrom" event where a stage was only going to have durch bm bands. They also have a website for a reason.

One can also get a day ticket but I understand its not as fun and a Lost of money for us not living in the country.

Tastes be tastes. But dont blame some things on"lack of advertising" when that is all they do prior to the festival. :p

It's the third time at least since 2017, so she was there every time from 2017 except for 2018 if you wanna be so nitpicky. Like I said it's not her specifically, if they announced Yob or Pallbearer I would've been just as bored with it if not more.

If you meant the Maalstrom thing, that seemed to me like one performance (as they said on fb: "for one special performance") and it was announced (on fb) December 13th. At that point, 4-day tickets and weekend tickets were sold out, they said that 3 day tickets were running low. Also that came like 3-4 months after the first announcement? You can be sure that by that point I already dropped out. So yeah, I didn't notice that. Cause they didn't say it would be a whole day and they announced it so late that it wouldn't have mattered anyways

Sure if you want, it wasn't "lack of advertising", it was confusing announcements that were late for me in particular. I'm not even blaming them, as I think it would've only been a really cool thing for me to visit that day and not necessarily my big highlight (or worthy of going there one day). They're making their money and get a lot of people in, that's great! Just not me. And I'm just reacting to your claim at this point :V

As someone on a massive CoL rediscovery stint after seeing them enter my top 3 live bands, I can't imagine they could ever enter the "I can't believe I ever liked this" category. They're as good now as they've always been.


Any chance you saw them at ArcTanGent to kick that off rediscovery? They've been in my top 3 live bands since I saw them at the Forum 5 years ago, although I was pretty hammered by the time they played ATG, so I'm glad they're doing a London show on their tour this fall

you should revisit their more recent works (namely Vertikal and Mariner) if you haven't already

You ask a lot of me Momo, but I'll take your words into consideration.


tbh, I now don't listen to anything they did before "Somewhere Along The Highway" as they really got better after that one


Not even Salvation? I'd have SATH and Vertikal above it, but I think that album's at least equal to Mariner and Eternal Kingdom, particularly Echoes and Waiting For You.

It was indeed Up till that point I didn't think anything could top Russian Circles that weekend, but somehow CoL did it. Just super intense and spot on. I might try and make the London gig too as I missed Brutus at ATG, although I've seen them a couple of times she's still an absolute beast to watch play.

Cant decide if I want to spend a few days of my vacations that will be left for me on this or visiting Chernobyl+Auschwitz.

Visit Chernobyl after the hype from the show dies down

I've been meaning to visit it for sometime now. I have a thing for industrial abandoned places and chernobyl just embodies that. Will see how it goes as i need to get a visa to go there.

Auschwitz.

Really depends what kind of vacation you're having tbh. Cause that's a big downer and also you should really take your time with it. It's not just a sightseeing location after all.

I have visited Dachau and it was one of the most moving experiences of my life. I love history of WW II in general.
I have considered one day at least for visiting Auschwitz. Might go there after visiting Berlin on the anniversary of Berlin Wall collapse.

Russian Circles were a big surprise; I knew they had a big reputation but I'd seen them support Mastodon in 2017 and not really been impressed, and never really dug their album stuff, but their show was excellent. What I can remember of CoL's show (which is bits and pieces of the songs I already know) were great, but I already knew they'd be awesome. Yeah, I ended up watching Battles but heard Brutus were great so will be good to catch them on that tour. I also liked A.A. Williams' set on Friday (or at least being under tent cover for it to escape the rain), so should be a nice billing all round.
