Roadburn Festival announced two curators of the 2020 edition. Emma Ruth Rundle and James Kent, better known as Perturbator will follow the excellent work that Tomas Lindberg, Jacob Bannon and other great artists did in the previous editions.
“As co-curator I hope to honor Roadburn’s legacy, and our community, by bringing artists to the festival, both new and established, who are creating important work,” Rundle says. “Craft that is pushing what it means to be part of the heavy music world and pulling with them some real emotional weight. While the genres may vary, each artist will be coming to the festival because of their ability to elicit a visceral and emotional reaction in my heart, and hopefully yours too. I’m excited to share this experience with the most unique and dedicated people who make up the Roadburn family.”
“Roadburn has been for many years to me the most interesting festival when it comes to metal and alternative music in general,” Kent adds. “Always in good taste, an open mind and an eye for new ideas, it is obvious that the people behind it are extremely passionate about bringing the best acts out there. That is why it is truly an immense honor for me to be the next Roadburn curator and I intend to keep to the tradition of inviting artists that will fascinate.”
The festival has been announced for April 16 through 19 in Tilburg (Netherlands).
