Presented by MAMA, NMC Live, Metal Hammer & PROG. Saturday 10th May 2014. London: The Forum, The Dome & Boston Music Room.
Saturday 10th May will see London host an audio-‐visual experience built around a concept and line up curated and headlined by Sweden’s CULT OF LUNA. An artist who for over a decade has helped mould and expand the notion of what heavy music can be, the diverse musicians they have put together should come as no surprise to those familiar with their music.
The second wave of bands announced is lead by one of the world’s most intense, musically – and visually – inventive post-‐rock bands: GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT. Joining them in The Forum will be the multifarious heavy layers of Justin Broadrick’s post-‐metal beast JESU. The Swedish north will blow through in the form of the combined might of Breach and The Ocean: a UK exclusive for THE OLD WIND. Veering perhaps further to the leftfield, we have Amenra member Matthieu Vandekerckhove’s ambient and experimental SYNDROME project. Finally, following their European tour with 65daysofstatic, Australia’s SLEEPMAKESWAVES complete the second band announcement.
CULT OF LUNA – GOD SEED – GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT – AMPLIFIER JESU – AMENRA – THE OLD WIND – BOSSK – BLUENECK SYNDROME – DIRK SERRIES - SLEEPMAKESWAVES
+ 9 more artists to be announced.
The cosmological redshift is caused by the expansion of space. The wavelength of light increases as it traverses the expanding universe. Unable to assume that we have a special place within this universe, the redshift suggests to us that everything is moving away from everything else…
We may not be able to go beyond the redshift, but we can certainly think beyond it. We are bringing together artists who expand within their space – artists who create something special within this space.
Tickets are priced at £30 + booking fee. 3 venues, 1 wristband, 12:00 p.m doors.
