Just in case you thought Roadburn 2015 might be done, the fest has gone and added a fifth stage. I never actually got around to making the list that would’ve expressed the sentiment, but seeing Netherlands-native droners Mühr at Cul de Sac was one of the high points of my entire 2014 in terms of live shows. It’s a separate club from 013, but basically right across the street in Weirdo Canyon, still very much within the fest’s purview. I can’t imagine it will remain standing after Goatwhore play, but it was nice while it lasted.

Other lineup additions for Roadburn 2015 today from Mount SalemDownfall of GaiaFistulaMinsk and more. By way of a cheap plug, if you click the links to the info for Fistula and Minsk, I wrote those. Nonetheless, it all came down the PR wire like such:

New additions and fifth stage confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2015

Roadburn Festival is pleased to kick off the new year with a handful of new confirmations, plus the addition of a fifth stage. Tickets for the 20th edition of the festival are on sale now.

Minsk, Mount Salem and Worm Ouroboros have been added to the line up at the 013 for Thursday April 9. Having previously performed at the 2009 edition of the festival, Minsk return to Roadburn, bringing their trademark atmospheric, meditative ambience, offset by raging thrust. Look out for plenty of canyon-sized riffs, trippy sounding keyboards and enchanting vocals when Mount Salem conjur a crushing windstorm to blow through Roadburn, whilst Worm Ouroboros will be spinning their diaphanous webs of the most delicate chamber doom.

For more information on these bands please click HERE for Minsk, HERE for Mount Salem, and HERE for Worm Ouroboros.

New Orleans heavyweights, Goatwhore lead the charge, followed by Germany’s Downfall of Gaia, noise-hardcore trio Cortez, and a dual-pronged sludge attack from both Fister, and Moloch as the first bands announced for the intimate Cul de Sac venue. As with the 2014 edition, Roadburn’s fifth stage will be at Cul de Sac – small music café located across from the 013 venue at 48 Heuvel, which is the street lined with bars and restaurants (also affectionately known as “Weirdo Canyon”). Four bands will perform at Cul de Sac on each day of the festival, Thursday – Sunday. Entry to these shows is sure to be in high demand, so attendees are advised to arrive early to secure access.

Fister, Cortez, and Moloch will perform on Thursday April 9. For more information please click HERE.

For information on Goatwhore click HERE, and Downfall of Gaia click HERE, both will perform on Friday April 10.

With regret, we have to announce that Lord Mantis will no longer be performing at Roadburn 2015. Having witnessed their incredible performance at the 2011 festival, we at Roadburn HQ were all really excited to have them perform at our 20th edition this coming April. Sadly, the band are unable to make it over to Europe due to personal reasons; as a result their performance at Roadburn and any shows around that will be cancelled. The vacant slot on the line up will be taken by Ohio sludge titans, Fistula who will bring their perfect blend of blasphemy and assaulting volume to Het Patronaat on Saturday April 11.

In December, day tickets were released on sale alongside the remaining weekend and Afterburner only tickets. To view ticketing options for Roadburn Festival click HERE.

    Any chance of you showing up at Roadburn this year, JJ? Last year’s coverage was beyond awesome. And the year before it. And the year before. It’s one of those traditions, in April you have The Obelisk reviewing Roadburn, and it kicks ass. Hopefully it will continue!

    Maybe it would sound silly, but why won’t you try crowdsourcing your trip? I’m sure there are people, including myself, who would donate to see you go and have some fun yourself. I know you have a donate button, but to do something more focused? It would be cool to combine it with DesertFest, Berlin especially, that way I could pay my respects in person.

    Yeah, actually double-checked that after posted, I guess I’ve seen it somewhere else. The point is, you spend so much time and effort on this project, it became so famous, especially in Europe, if all the labels, bands and other entities bring up your name all the time as “measure of quality” in terms of reviews and everything. Maybe you should contact people like Sound of Liberation? They’re huge fans. I’m sure something can be done. In any case, I don’t want to bother you with my thoughts, just saying it would be major league if you would be able to continue doing what you’re doing year in, year out. And again, I’d support it with my pocket. Cheers, and thanks again for everything.
