Roadburn 2020 is really shaping up to be pretty great, huh? The festival will be held on April 16 through 19 in Tilburg, NET, and is curated by curated by Emma Ruth Rundle and James Kent (Pertubator). In addition to an already great lineup, Roadburn 2020 will now feature a reunited Red Sparowes, Torche, Russian Circles, and Dead Neanderthals playing four sets with guests Sly & The Family Drone and Skeletonwitch's Scott Hedrick as a part of their 10th anniversary celebration.
Other new artists include:
- Russian Circles
- Alber Jupiter
- Die Wilde Jagd
Roadburn Festival 2020 has two artists in residence, Full Of Hell and Lingua Ignota. Full of Hell will perform Weeping Choir in full, Trumpeting Ecstasy in full, and a set comprised of their early material including songs from Roots of Earth Are Consuming My Home and early 7” releases. Lingua Ignota will play an extremely special covers set, a set of her All Bitches Die material, and "a grand re-imagining of Caligula – pulled apart and elegantly pieced back together in a new way." There will also be a Full Of Hell and Lingua Ignota collaboration set.
Additional artists announced for Roadburn 2020 are Hide, Health, Boy Harsher, She Past Away, Dool, Bada, a collaboration between Cult Of Luna guitarist and vocalist Johannes Persson and Perturbator, a collaboration between Jo Quail and the New Trombone Collective titled Jo Quail Presents The Cartographer, and one between Vile Creature and Bismuth named A Hymn Of Loss And Hope.
Persson will also return for a collaboration with vocalist Julie Christmas, who you might know from her album with Cult Of Luna in 2013 titled Mariner, and ex-Kylesa guitarist Laura Pleasants.
