They're finally here! The official time schedules for dunk!festival 2018. And there's only good news in there. As you can see it is (again) perfectly possible to see every minute of every show... in theory. We know this is important. To accomplish this we decided to set-up only two stages again. And that implies some advantages for everyone:
With less than 50 days to go, the countdown to dunk!festival2018 really has begun!
Spend your time well with our fourth episode.
It is with great pleasure that we reveal the final name and full line-up for dunk!festival 2018. Les Discrets is coming over from France on May 12th and will make sure the last evening of this 14th edition is as memorable as the rest of this magical weekend.
Eager to discover some more bands on our line-up? Grab your headphones and have a listen to Aswekeepsearching, Hemelbestormer, The Ills, Caspian, Rosetta and Cloakroom.
We decided to create a podcast about the bands that you will hear at our festival in may! Every sunday evening, a new episode will be posted on mixcloud.
All good things come in fives, or something like that. With this announcement we have 35 bands of 36 announced for dunk!festival 2018, which is now only 69 days away! But enough numbers. Here's some relevant information about the wonderful bands joining the line-up.
After moving around this amazing bunch of bands in different slots on different days we think we reached a pretty solid and balanced line-up per day. So we are happy to reveal the day schedules for dunk!festival 2018. Be aware that we still have six more names to be announced. We hope to be able to do that very soon! Time tables will be available later.
You better start training those headbanging muscles and crowd surfing skills because this is probably the heaviest announcement of the line-up, bringing us close to the final bill. Still tweaking some details but we're happy to add these 5 amazing bands to the line-up today!
There's already a whole bunch of names announced for our 14th edition but we still have a good amount of names coming up. In this next announcement we only have 'first time' bands. And most of them will be traveling a long way to get there.
For those who are looking for a little bit more comfort and/or want to travel light, we now have two accommodation options at the festival camping: Festihut & Festitent
Back in October we made our first in-person acquaintance with Montreal’s Appalaches at dunk!usa in Vermont. The impression they made was strong enough to inspire further partnership, and they have subsequently joined the roster for dunk!2018 in Zottegem. Looking to build upon our first experience Stateside, dunk! will be continuing to sponsor smaller events in the U.S. as our brand grows on American soil. The first of these shows take place Friday February 9th and Saturday February 10th in Burlington, VT and Boston, MA, and we’re thrilled to be at it again with Appalaches.
We are delighted to add another five names to the line-up for dunk!festival 2018. With only 99 days to go the line-up is shaping up nicely. Some of these bands will sound familiar, others might be new for you guys. Or maybe not. But here they are anyway!
We promised to be back with more names soon and we always keep to our promises. With already 10 names announced and 5 new names right below, we can still say there are many more to come. But more about that later. In this batch of names we have two bands coming back for more after a successful appearance in the past and some 'newbies' that are well known in the worldwide post-rock scene (or should be!).
Lots of exciting stuff going on at dunk!HQ lately. One of them is setting up the next edition of our festival in May and fine-tuning the line-up. It looks like we'll be able to lock the entire line-up in the next few weeks so now we can speed up the announcements! In this second batch of names we have some old friends and lots of new stuff to discover...
Ladies and gentlemen, you have been waiting a long time for this and so did we. But today the stars are perfectly aligned (and most of all, the line-up pieces are now starting to fit together) to announce the first names for #dnk18. So let's get to it and present the first 5 bands that will appear on the 14th edition of our festival....
Surprise!! Here are the Early Bird Combi tickets (and all other ticket types) for dunk!festival 2018. As always they are limited and gone means gone. Last year it took you guys only one hour...
Error! Design worked together with bands like Pelican, Emma Ruth Rundle, Russian Circles, This Will Destroy You, Mono, And So I Watch You From Afar and many more. And most importantly he's designing the posters for dunk!festival in Europe and the USA. So of course we can't have a festival set up without Error! Design ...
In exactly one week we'll be in Burlington, Vermont waiting for the night to fall and to wake up on day one of dunk!USA 2017. A few bands are already touring their way up to the Green State and we are packing our bags to jump on the plane in a few days as well. Excitement everywhere! So to get everyone prepared we have this detailed time scheduled for all of you to start planning the weekend ...
Just before dunk!festival 2017 we had Pray For Sound coming over to the Deaftone Studio to have some fun. They performed Everywhere, Everywhere and Congratulations, You're Alive from their latest album Everything Is Beautiful, released on dunk!records in Sept 2016. This is the result:
