Sleep, Etc. Booked For 2019 ‘Roadburn Festival’, At The Gates’ Tomas Lindberg To Curate


The lineup for the 2019 edition of the annual ‘Roadburn‘ festival has taken shape with a number of new artists announced. At The Gates, etc. frontman Tomas Lindberg has been revealed as a curator for the festival this year with bands of his choosing planned to perform on Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th under the banner of ‘The Burning Darkness’. Speaking of the honor, Lindberg stated:

“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!”

In other news, Sleep have been announced as the main headliners for the festival and will perform two career spanning sets, one spotlighting their sophomore album “Holy Mountain” and the other their latest release, “The Sciences“. Other tracks and ‘surprises’ are also planned. Sleep will be performing on both Saturday April 13th and Sunday, April 14th.

Thus far bands confirmed for the festival include:

Birds In Row
Have A Nice Life
Louise Lemón
Seven That Spells
Vile Creature

Further announcements are expected in the coming months with the festival to take place April 11-14th at 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands.
