The organizers of the annual Desertfest just checked in with this announcement about the 2017 lineup coming together:
"We know you all have been aching for this, so without further ado let us present the first names for the 2017 edition of Desertfest Antwerp!
"We kick things off with Windhand, a scene favorite that has also managed to capture the hearts and minds of rock fans worldwide with their unique brand of female-led Sabbathian worship. Radio Moscow is another winner with a stone solid live reputation that will be sure to set the DF stage on fire.
"Next up, something more out of the ordinary: Part Chimp blends sludgey riffage with the acid bite of Amphetamine noiserock, and will delight anyone with a fine ear for heavily distorted blues. Finally, we keep the tradition of presenting Belgian bands to our international crowd. Hemelbestormer (that's Dutch for 'Stormer of Heaven') is a local postmetal band that has been making waves in Europe and the States for the last couple of years." More...
