Leading independent Heavy music promoter Desertfest is returning to New York’s Knockdown Center and Saint Vitus Bar this September. Having already announced the likes of Melvins, Monster Magnet, Boris, Godflesh, Colour Haze, Truckfighters, 1000mods, plus many more, the globally renowned festival rounds off its line-up by welcoming UK Doom heroes Conan, Nick Oliveri’s stoner outfit Mondo Generator and multi-instrumentalist’s Djunah.
Stage splits and day tickets for the festival are now on sale, where the eager-eyed will notice that an additional third stage “The Ruins” will be added to the Knockdown Center on Saturday 16th September, for the very first time.
Due to phenomenal demand with pre-party selling out instantly, Desertfest also announces that Germany’s Colour Haze will play two sets over the weekend pulling from the bands expansive catalogue and promising no repeats. Desertfest NYC will be the band’s only U.S. performance and frontman Stefan Koglek shared the following “We even intend to rework the 22-minute epic “Peace, Brothers & Sisters!” which we haven’t been playing since 2018 for the show at Saint Vitus…’ so for those who managed to snag a three-day pass, you’re surely in for something special.“
With just three months to go, Desertfest is poised to be the East Coast’s biggest celebration of underground heavy music. Promising an unforgettable weekend of exceptional live performances, electric energy and unrivalled Rock’n’Roll spirit. The festival will also play host to an array of specially curated vendors, food trucks and killer after-parties, all still to be announced.
