Desertfest NYC is here and will take over the NYC area for three days. This Metal thrill ride continues at The Well with the bands Elder, Monolord, ASG, Ruby The Hatchet, Unearthly Trance, Micks Jaguar, Green Milk From The Planet Orange, Duel and Sun Voyager. Be sure to check the times so you don’t miss any of these exciting bands.
I didn’t know too much about the annual Desertfest until a fellow media maven was talking about it and now I can proudly share some cool concert news with you all. Check it out.
The Press Release:
Established in London in 2012 and entering its 8th year in 2019, Desertfest is the leading underground festival specialising in all aspects of Stoner Rock, Doom, Heavy Psych and its subsidiaries. Now taking place across 4 cities in Europe during a 12-month period, the growth of Desertfest has been organic and utterly independent, making it one of the most solid and trusted names within the music community.
With its grasp on Europe well and truly honed, the next logical step was to bring the unparalleled atmosphere and eclectic line-up of Desertfest to the sprawling plains of the USA and what better place to start than New York – a city that encompasses everything the festival holds dear. It’s no easy feat launching a festival in a new country, but with demand rising, an established name pushing the train forward, plus a killer partnership with esteemed locals Tee Pee Records, it’s time to answer the call…
April 2019 will see Desertfest take over two of the most renowned venues in Brooklyn, The Well and Saint Vitus. The Well, housed in the former Hittleman Brewery, which boasts two stages, an expansive outdoor area and striking indoor bar, will be turned into a haven for riff lovers on Saturday April 27th and Sunday April 28th as Desertfest lands upon Bushwick. Plus, a venue that is no stranger to the louder side of the spectrum, New York’s most famous heavy haunt Saint Vitus will play host to Desertfest on Friday April 26th. Saint Vitus has nearly singlehandedly put NYC on the global metal map, honoured is an understatement.

Artist David Paul Seymour will present a collection of his works at this unique exhibit tonight. He has done works for Agnostic Front, The Sword, Red Fang, Graveyard, Earthless, Kadavar, Church of Misery, Lord Dying, and Ides of Gemini and many more. The evening also features the bands Scorpion Child, Wo Fat, The Well and Matte Black. Should be an interesting time.
Since I know many of our awesome readers are fans of a number of the bands performing on this years bill, I wanted to send out a reminder post that this weekend (May 17th and 18th) over at The Well in beautiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn will be the Black N Blue Bowl for 2014…..Check out the poster below.
The event starts super early as you can see and that makes complete sense with the amount of bands that are performing each of the two nights. The first night will be headlined by Hatebreed and just before them will be the one and only Agnostic Front. They’ll also play on Saturday before Discharge and fans should be aware that this will be the only area appearance for AF with their “Cause For Alarm” lineup. Considering we can also count on sets from Biohazard, Ludichrist and many, many more you know that the fans of this music are going to be talking about it for months after it has passed. Should you not be able to make it this year you can always keep up with the event happenings via its official page and their social networks. Start from the main site and work your way around from there. It’s usually the best way. If you are going, always remember the rules “if someone goes down you pick them up”. Don’t let anyone get hurt. Have fun.
