Why, it feels like only yesterday I was regretting not being able to get to Berlin and catch the Desertfest there in April. Oh wait, that was just yesterday. By all accounts (including Ben Ward’s and Justin Maranga‘s) it was an absolute blast, and though I think it would have perhaps been the final snapping of The Patient Mrs.‘ much-tested patience, there was plenty I would’ve liked to see.
In my usual bid to get absolutely no work done on any given day — today, for example — I stumbled on the following PR wire-type info from Sound of Liberation‘s website, and saw fit to repost. Check it:
DESERTFEST 2013 plans are shaping up!
Dear festival addicts, our rendez-vous in Berlin is set for 2013 and we start working on the festival plans…
First of all, as mentioned at the end of 2012 edition, dates for 2013 are set and now confirmed: it will be 25th, 26th and 27th of April 2013.
A small change is included in our plans: all 3 days will happen in ASTRA KulturHaus, which is the bigger venue where friday and saturday shows happened in 2012: this means wider and more comfortable space for all of us and 2 stages running over the 3 days of the festival! We hope you will enjoy!
Also, from this week on we start working on the visual arts ( art exhibit and movies) aspects of our rendez-vous. All interested artists who would like to exhibit their silkcreens, sculpture, painting, short movie ( court métrage) or movies related to the Heavy, Stoner, Psychedelic or Doom scene can contact us here: visual_arts[@]desertfest.de
Booking of the line-up will also start anytime soon! all submission should be sent to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
> all bands/artists application should include: name, logo, press picture, promo text in english and link to songs to listen to as well as video links.
> Please be patient: we will not answer right away but we will contact the bands we are interested in by the end of september 2012.
Also we want to thank all of you who reacted on facebook, and who posted ideas for the line-up..please go on! we check this regulary and will take advice for our choices of 2013 line-up!
