Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to complete the line-up for this historical edition of our tiny little festival with this last announcement containing five amazing acts, festival headliner included. Here they are!

Russian Circles doesn't need an introduction. They will be the perfect headliner for our first edition in Burlington. After bringing an epic show to the stage of dunk!festival 2016 (which was released as a live album on vinyl) we just know this post-metal trio from Chicago is gonna be an excellent ending for a wonderful weekend.

Zhaoze is among the bigger post-rock bands in China. The load of awards they are receiving since 2002 is enough reason to believe that. Their unique sound is created by the use of a traditional string instrument called Guqin that is thousands of years old, combined with a classical post-rock sound. Zhaoze builds up an absolutely unique imaginative sound spectrum, providing a soulful, dreamy and beautiful poetic world.

Sad Turtle from Burlington will play a home game at dunk!USA. Their debut album "Ruthless and Toothless" showcases their accessible approach to experimental music while their live shows have drawn comparisons to Battles, Tortoise, and Alarmist. This can't go wrong!

Astronoid is a five-piece band from Boston, MA with influences ranging from Devin Townsend and Mew to Alcest and Cynic. Their first full-length album, Air, was released by Blood Music in 2016 as part of an evolving experience that complements their two acclaimed EPs from 2012-13, Stargazer and November.

Unconditional Arms from Oakland, CA is a band conceptualized around gifts and movement. In 2013 the project began with a simple idea; to write and record an album as a gift to Jeff's newborn son. Since then, it has grown to become a living, breathing entity.
