Desertfest London have confirmed the legendary Suicidal Tendencies to their 2024 event as Roundhouse headliners. Celebrating 40 years since their genre-defying first album, Suicidal Tendencies’ headlining performance will add a new dimension to the festival, which has primarily been synonymous with showcasing the best of stoner, doom and psych for over twelve years.

The icons keep rolling in as Ozric Tentacles join the bill, also celebrating a monumental 40 years, Ozrics’ unique lysergic soundscapes helped merge the worlds of psychedelia, progressive rock and dance music.

Heavy music’s hardest-working, and hardest-partying, road dogs Cancer Bats bring their rock’n’roll shenanigans to Desertfest while as Bongripper make their first appearance at the event since 2013. If that isn’t enough, the prodigal son returns as Nick Oliveri’s Mondo Generator bringing with him an immense catalogue of desert-drenched tones.

Elsewhere new additions include Greek stoner-Gods Nightstalker, avant-garde-jazz meets black-metallers Ashenspire, a spellbinding ritual from Sunnata and Canadian face-melters Wake.

The full line-up currently confirmed reads as follows: Suicidal Tendencies, Masters Of Reality, Godflesh, Ozric Tentacles, Bongripper, Monolord, Acid King, Ufomammut, Brant Bjork Trio, Maserati, Mantar, Mondo Generator, Cloakroom, Monkey3, Nightstalker, Blanket, Ashenspire, Domkraft, Astroqueen, Pijn, Sunnata, Wake, Sugar Horse, Stinking Lizaveta, Wet Cactus, Psychlona, Kadabra, Darsombra, Sergeant Thunderhoof, Saint Karloff, Kal-el, Gozer, Lord Elephant, Goblinsmoker, Acid Throne, Duskwood, Borehead, Orme, Clouds Taste Satanic, Sagan, Warpstormer, Sonic Taboo, Wizdoom

Weekend Tickets for the event are on sale now via the Official Desertfest Website with more artists, day splits & day tickets released in January. Desertfest takes place across multiple venues in London from May 17th to May 19th, 2024.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
