Desertfest London announces entire line-up for its 10 Year Anniversary in 2022
In 2022, Desertfest London will be celebrating a decade since its inception, returning to the hallowed grounds of Camden with their biggest and most most diverse line-up to date. After losing two editions of the festival due to Covid-19 restrictions, Desertfest London makes its comeback by adding a monumental two days at the prestigious Roundhouse, alongside the first ever stage at the newly-named PowerHaus.
Welcoming back the likes of Witchcraft – who will play their first & only UK performance in over a decade -, stoner rock icons Lowrider, a UK debut from Khemmis and an exclusive performance from Somali Yacht Club, the festival will also be celebrating its roots with Corrosion of Conformity, Orange Goblin and Truckfighters. Saturday night’s Roundhouse stage will showcase the diversity and progression of Desertfest London as an all-encompassing celebration of heavy music – an exclusive UK performance from noise-rock legends Shellac will be joined by Pissed Jeans, Elder, Part Chimp and Elephant Tree. On the last night at the Roundhouse, Electric Wizard will make their long-awaited return to the festival, alongside the earth-shattering sounds of Yob, Eyehategod, The Obsessed and Conan, solidifying this as a line-up for the history books. PowerHaus will welcome the likes of GNOD, Hey Colossus, Slift, Bonnacons of Doom and Shuck, whilst The Underworld makes way for the storming sounds of Integrity, Green Lung, Switchblade, Petbrick and Colstblood, among others. Elsewhere across the festival, there will be performances by Earthless, Brant Bjork & Nick Oliveri’s new project Stoner, the UK debut from Spirit Adrift, the psychedelic sounds from Sacri Monti, unearthly visions from Japan’s Blacklab, the return of stoner rockers Josiah and three stages at The Dev showcasing the very best of the underground scene. With over 75 bands across the weekend, Desertfest London is set to scratch every single itch as we welcome the riff-loving masses back to their spiritual home.
Desertfest London 2022 takes place across Camden, UK, from April 29th to May 1st. Information regarding tickets and the entire lineup can be found in the festival’s website, here.
