BELGIAN PRIDE AT DESERTFEST ANTWERP 2019

Each year at DF Antwerp, we present you with a number of upcoming local acts that deserve to shine in front of our esteemed international crowd. We urge you to check 'em all out - they're absolute bosses each and every one of them!

Fire Down Below have been making waves in the worldwide stoner community from day one with their debut album 'Viper Vixen Goddess Saint' (Ripple Music) drawing comparisons to anything from Kyuss, to Red Fang, to Soundgarden. Likewise, The Progerians from Brussels have built a steady reputation for their uncompromising yet fiercely exciting mix of punk anthems and sludge stomp.

We also have some leftfield choices that are bound to raise heads! At one end of the spectrum we have Vonnis - sheer brutality poured into a Molotov cocktail of hardcore, grind and noise. On the flipside we have Crayon Sun, the new project of Aldo Struyf (Millionnaire, Mark Lanegan Band) and the Antwerp blues singer Big Dave. Soulful psychedelics is what you get.

We already announced the merry noise pranksters of 30,000 Monkies earlier this year, and we close off this chauvinist list with a fine slab of supreme spacerock, courtesy of Grotto. Their epic instrumental psychedelia seems custom-made for all you space cadets at Desertfest.

Now go forth and fire up your browser to discover the music, and we guarantee you'll be scrambling for a place on the first row come October!
