Opeth frontman/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt has signed on to curate the April 11th show of the 2013 ‘Roadburn Festival‘. The festival will be held at 013 in Tilburg, NET from April 10th-13th. Mikael will personally select the bands for the April 11th show as well as play a headlining setwith Opeth. He commented:

“It’s with great honour that I accepted the invitation to be the curator for the 2014 Roadburn festival. I’m pretty damn far from being a professional booker / promotor, and I’ve never been part in choosing bands for an event apart from bands that Opeth has toured with. So this is a first for me, but I have to say I’m very excited.

I’ve reached out to a handful of my favourite bands from the past and present. As of now it looks like it will be an amazing musical event. Still brainstorming about possible bands for this glorious festival but I already know that I’m going to be like a kid at Christmas. It will be amazing! Plain and simple. Obviously Opeth will perform as well, but to be quite honest with you, our own performance doesn’t get me nearly as excited as the thought of experiencing the bands that have shown interest. It will be remarkable and memorable. A celebration, bitches!”
