Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas, Weedeater, Grave Pleasures & More Confirmed For Roadburn 2018

By on 11 October 2017

Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas have confirmed they’ll be performing ‘Mariner’ for the final time at next year’s Roadburn, with artists like Grave Pleasures, Weedeater (performing all of ‘God Luck And Good Speed’), Greenmachine, Årabrot, Hell, Mizmor, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Sannhet and Uniform joining them too.

Artistic Director, Walter Hoeijmakers commented:

“We’re thrilled to bring you this set of announcements ahead of the tickets going on sale next week. We have a lot more still to come including our Artists in Residence for 2018, and two specially commissioned performances. The artists that we’ve commissioned will be familiar to Roadburners, but they will be performing pieces of music that have never been heard before – just for us! We’re still confirming the final details before we can announce those shows but we already know this is going to raise the creative bar for Roadburn.

“We’re also very pleased to confirm that we’ll be making use of a new venue at Roadburn 2018. In response to feedback from our attendees, we have found the perfect space at the Koepelhal – just up the road from the 013 –  to spread out a little bit and provide a fantastic space for bands and audiences alike.”

Japan’s Greenmachine will be performing ‘D.A.M.N.’ in full as part of Jacob Banon’s curation, of which the Converge frontman had this to say:

‘D.A.M.N.’ was released by Man’s Ruin Records during the golden era of that influential label. For me, GREENMACHiNE were one of the bands that really connected with me in that stable. They were more intense than other releases the label was producing, and their origins within the Japanese Punk/Hardcore scene made them a welcomed mystery. A quality that was deepened by their subsequent breakups and brief reformations throughout the years. I am excited to finally see them unleash these brutal songs live at Roadburn 2018, it is an exclusive experience that is not to be missed.”

Roadburn 2018 tickets will go on sale on October 19. They will be available to purchase in person from the 013 box office from 18.30- 20.30 local time, and online worldwide from 21.00 CEST / 20:00 BST /15:00 EDT / 12:00 PDT.
