You better start training those headbanging muscles and crowd surfing skills because this is probably the heaviest and loudest 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!
The Ocean from Berlin, Germany will be back at dunk!festival (they played an overwhelming show for us in 2015). This time they will bring the Precambrian album to stage for its 10th birthday. This will be the perfect amount of heaviness to close the second day of the festival.
Au Revoir from 'different places across the USA' blew us away at dunk!USA last October and we don't want anyone to miss out on this experience. Their repetitive post-rock / post-metal takes the time needed to build up to a climax that lasts forever.
Hemelbestormer from Belgium played dunk!festival in 2015 and will be back in 2018. This time they will play the forest stage. Their last album Aether has songs from 12 to 19 minutes so expect two or three songs of slowly building up post-rock riffs growing into post-metal outbursts. It's gonna be massive.
Jeffk from Leipzig, Germany is pure post-metal grooves with a layer of shreds on top. This will be headbanging from beginning to end. Other good news: their upcoming debut full length album will be released on dunk!records in spring 2018. Stay tuned for more news about their upcoming album!
Astodan from Belgium is another dunk!records discovery and will also bring their debut album to the festival. Their dynamic post-rock music is inspired by bands like Caspian, Mogwai, ISIS, Explosions In The Sky but with a slightly more epic touch in the louder parts (and there are many!). You'll hear more from them real soon!
