The organizer of Desert Rock Festival, Center Stage Management, has announced its full line-up for its sixth edition, held at Dubai Festival City on Friday, March 6, 2009. Six international heavy metal bands will dominate the stage providing seven hours of live music, supported by two lucky bands chosen from competitions running across the globe.
The line-up for this year’s Desert Rock Festival will feature Motörhead, Arch Enemy, Opeth, ChimaIra, August Burns Red, Nervecell and two yet-named bands.
This marks Motorhead’s first ever performance in the Middle East since the beginning of their career in 1975. On their 30th anniversary, they won a Grammy for "Best Metal Performance," promising a powerful show.
In 2009, Desert Rock Festival will be a full day dedicated to and celebrating heavy metal.
The acclaimed music event started off as a 3-hour show in 2004 and expanded into a 2-day festival in 2007 with a heavy metal day to start with and ‘mainstream’ rock the next.
However, based on the popularity of the heavy metal genre in the region and the day dedicated to it, festival promoters confirm Desert Rock Festival will take place on Friday, March 6th, rewarding loyal Desert Rock "disciples" that have made it a success, every year since its inception.
