Sleep & More To Perform At 2019 Roadburn Festival, At The Gates’ Tomas Lindberg To Curate

Sleep will be headlining the 2019 Roadburn Festival, which is set to take place on April 11-14 at 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands. The band are planning two career spanning sets on April 13-14, including one focusing on “Holy Mountain” and another one focusing on “The Sciences.“ Aside from them, the event will also feature Birds In Row, Gore, Have A Nice Life, Heilung, Louise Lemón, Midnight, Seven That Spells, and Vile Creature. Furthermore, At The Gates’ Tomas Lindberg has been confirmed as the curator and the bands he chooses will perform on April 12-13 under the name “The Burning Darkness.”

Lindberg commented:

“There really are no words that can describe just how excited I am about this! To be asked to curate Roadburn in 2019 is an incredible honor. I have been at the last three editions of Roadburn, and it is by far my favorite musical happening every year. It is here I finally get to see bands live that have been on my radar for a while, and it is here that I – without fail – discover new music.

Just because of my involvement with At The Gates, Roadburn 2019 isn’t going to turn into a death metal festival, however there will definitely be a renewed focus on darkness and extremity – in every form.

I know curating a part of the Roadburn festival is a huge responsibility; one that I take deeply seriously. I am aiming to stay true to the Roadburn tradition of bringing a mix of exciting favourites mixed with a lot of new, challenging artists to the festival. Roadburn for me has always been about eclecticism, and underground music of all styles that desperately demand your attention. Walter and I have already started talking about possibilities, and I am super excited about the direction of these talks. See you there!”

Stay tuned for more announcements.
