Roadburn 2020 First Announcements

While we are pretty much NYC focused on the shows and regional events we cover here at PiercingMetal, we do love to help rally the charge for some of the awesome festivals that are happening either stateside or across the pond. One such upcoming festival is Roadburn which is held in Tilburg, Netherlands. Take a look at the first official announcement down below.

The Press Release:

CURATORS:
Each year we give over a slice of Roadburn’s line up to a carefully hand picked curator; they put their distinctive stamp on a corner of the festival and make it their own. For 2020, we have not one but two curators stepping up to the plate. Operating entirely separately, and connected by little more than their common association with Roadburn Festival – and of course their insatiable appetite for creativity – Roadburn’s 2020 curators are limbering up to deliver something special. Expect the unexpected.

CURATOR: EMMA RUTH RUNDLE:
Emma has left such a mark on the festival, and the wider musical landscape over the past few years; we’re honoured to invite her back to Roadburn as a curator – a new role for her, but one that she is more than ready for. Her expansive creativity and curious explorations have already led her towards collaborations – both live and on record. Her musical taste is broad and in keeping with Roadburn’s desire to explore the many facets of heavy music. Read more about Emma’s curation here.
