They join the likes of Deafheaven, Cave In and Wolves In The Throne Room, who were previously announced.

“We’re delighted to announce the final names for the Roadburn 2023 line-up,” enthuses artistic director Walter Hoeijmaker. “As has been said before, this year’s Roadburn will be a journey of discovery. The line-up is purposely focused on bands that have begun to make their mark over the last few years, and so, it’s also a reflection of the current underground. It was our aim to offer a lot of these bands and artists a platform to excel in front of a passionate and open-minded audience.

“We are so grateful to everyone who has gone to great lengths to help bring these artists to Roadburn. When you look at the full line-up, we sincerely hope you share our excitement. It’s our intention to make sure that Roadburn is a home away from home for everyone involved; the bands, the attendees, the industry folk, the staff.

“Roadburn 2023 is a celebration of underground music and culture; it will be a hub for positivity, creativity and artistry, and in a spirit of defiance it will bring hope in the face of the many adversities of our times. We thank you for this opportunity. We can't wait to celebrate with you.”
