Dutch stoner, sludge and doom metal festival Into the Void has revealed new names for the 2018 edition on October 19 and 20th in the venue Neushoorn, Leeuwarden (NL). Among the new are Orange Goblin, Wo Fat, Boss Keloid, Famyne and Ancestors. John Garcia, Elder, Conan, Acid King, Mourning Beloveth, Pyraweed, Naxatras, Lucifer and more were already announced. Weekend tickets are on sale now.
Inspired by the gods of hard rock and heavy metal, Orange Goblin was born amid the mid 90’s explosion of stoner rock. However, the band from London has much more up their sleeve than red-eyed boogie and “flapping flares”. Over almost 25 years the band has proved to be consistently putting out solid records with ass kicking riffs and all the heavy metal goods. Orange Goblin has mostly gained their reputation by becoming a formidable live band, renowned crowd-pleasers. The band was supposed to headline Into the Void in 2016 but unfortunately had to cancel. This year, the fans at Into the Void will have a new chance to see the band play!
Formed in 2003, Texan psychedelic blues doom band Wo Fat took their name from a villain on the 1970’s show Hawai Five-O. Having been around for 15 years they are now rocking harder than ever, playing shows across the globe. In 2013 the band landed a deal with iconic stoner rock label, Small Stone Records, with whom they released their most critically acclaimed albums, The Black Code (2013) and The Conjuring (2014). Taking pride in their tradition Wo Fat keeps it fuzzy but groovy, all while staying true to the deep, dark blues sound. As Wo Fat is not a band you see around often in Europe, so grab the opportunity at Into the Void.
The line-up of Into the Void currently features the following bands: Orange Goblin, Wo-Fat, John Garcia, Elder, Conan, Acid King, Mourning Beloveth, Pyraweed, Naxatras, Lucifer, Ancestors, Boss Keloid, Famyne, Grim van Doom, Rrrags, Haester, Child, Dead Quiet, Minsk, Zatokrev, Hackberry and Bismut. More bands will be added later.
Weekend tickets for the festival are on sale now. A ticket for both days is 45 EUR (service fee of 2,50 EUR) excluded. The day splits will be announced later and the day tickets will go on sale later. Get your tickets here.
