Desertfest Athens 2016: Red Fang to Headline First Night; Black Rainbows Added

Here we are just barely a week removed from the last batch of announcements for Desertfest Athens 2016, the inaugural edition of the Desertfest‘s Greek brand extension, set to take place Oct. 7 and 8 in the birthplace of Western democracy, and already the festival has followed up with not only two more bands, but one of them as the headliner for its first night. Working quick there, Desertfest Athens. So be it. This time around, it’s Portland’s number one riffy export, Red Fang, who’ll head abroad to Europe this fall in support of a new album the title of which is still to be announced. They headline Oct. 7 at Desertfest Athens 2016, while Italian heavy psych forerunners Black Rainbows will also take part in the festivities on one day or the other.

Now, last time I put up a post from Desertfest Athens 2016, they added another band before it went live, so I’ll be keeping an eye out to see if the same thing happens this time, but even if it winds up just being these two for this round, they’re both significant additions to the bill. More to come, either way, I’m sure.

After London, Berlin and Antwerp, the Desertfest franchise is keeping up its conquest of Europe by launching the very first Greek edition of the famous stoner, doom and psych festival. DESERTFEST ATHENS will take place over the second weekend of October, as a sister event of the autumnal Belgium edition.

Over the years, DESERTFEST has become one of the most popular events in Europe for everything heavy, stoner, doom and psyche. “Made by fans for the fans”, the festival gathers thousands of people from across the globe each year by hosting the finest headliners, while also constantly stretching the limits of its own niche with dozens of quality live acts throughout a weekend. Nurturing a friendly atmosphere since the very beginning, DESERTFEST is a urban festival that has won the loyalty of heavy music lovers, so expect your Greek holiday to be a unique and memorable music and human experience!

Red Fang, Live at Hellfest 2015
