It has been a pretty wild ride watching  Desertfest Belgium 2015 take shape. From the first announcements through these — which are reportedly the final ones before the schedule of runtimes is put out on Friday — the festival has taken on bigger and bigger names, expanding well beyond the desert to grow into an entity of its own and a landmark for the fall season. The last adds are The Machine, newcomers Bathsheba, who intrigue on lineup alone, and Wucan, who I don’t know but who pretty much win the contest for genre descriptors based on what they’re quoted as being below. They join one of the least fuckwithable lineups in the multi-year, multi-city history of Desertfest.

Announcement came through like so:

We still owed you a couple of names to complete our line-up, and here they are: from The Netherlands we have THE MACHINE to provide their experimental heavy rock sound. From Germany we have WUCAN with their “Topsy-Turvy Higgledy-Piggledy Folk-Blues-Psych-Stoner-ProtoMetal-Soul”. And to round things off, there’s the Belgian BATHSHEBA, a super doom band of sorts involving members from Serpentcult, SardoniS and Death Penalty.

Later on this week we will announce the names of the turntable wizards (including a very special guest on Saturday!) that will rock the time inbetween the concerts & the afterparties.

We also know a lot of you are waiting for the time schedules so you can start plotting your trajectory. Well, the wait is almost over… on Friday we publish the schedules!
