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.

Telepathy from the UK will bring some progressive sludgy post-metal to the table. Their excellent live reputation got them to the stages of Incubate, Roadburn, Desertfest,... and will now headline the Forest Stage on Friday.

Cloakroom from the USA did a lot of headline touring but also hit the road with Russian Circles before and is now joining Caspian on their EU tour. We are excited to have them in Zottegem as well. Dreamy / shoegaze / stoner / slowcore is what can be expected from these three guys. Their latest album Time Well was released last summer.

Nonsun from Ukraine released their debut album Black Snow Desert (remixed and remastered) on dunk!records a month ago. Of course we don't want you to miss out on something like this and we are absolutely positive their dark sludge drone doom metal will fit perfectly on our forest stage.

Jo Quail from London, UK is probably not unknown to you. She visited the festival (and obviously also performed) in 2015. It's always a pleasure to have her and her cello back. This time Jo will enchant the forest on Friday and maybe she will join Caspian for a song during their set on Thursday.

Father Sky Mother Earth is a rather new drone/doom duo from Hamburg, Germany. Their first self titled album was released in September 2016 and their second album Across the River of Time followed soon after, in April 2017. These experimental dark drones accompanied by distant drums will echo through the forest on Saturday.
