Desertscene commented:

“Americana runs through our blood, even if it may be on the louder side of the spectrum, Desertscene has always been a celebration of the unique sound that was originally born out of the Palm Desert in California. Those undeniable low desert tones have taken a universal leap over the last 20 years; with a vast, progressive and unstoppable influence that has not only created a staggering array of musical talent, but an underground culture that few other genres could fathom.

It was a no-brainer “YES!” when Black Deer asked us to curate The Roadhouse for 2019, the core values shared between Desertscene and Black Deer are without question. There’s no doubt we have a bounty of heavy cross-over blues, psych and rock’n’roll to showcase, but it’s the support of underground cultures and the appreciation of story telling that makes us align so seamlessly.”

So with that, Desertscene are beyond excited to reveal the first 8 acts for next years Roadhouse. Please welcome from the sprawling plains of the USA, whiskey-fuelled, foot-stompin’ blues rock’n’rollers Left Lane Cruiser and renowned hard-rock psych power trio Radio Moscow, Icelandic riff-lovers THE Vintage Caravan, otherworldly masters of the jam Asteroid, fuzzy proto-rockers The Black Wizards, 70s doom worship in the form of Duel, London’s own psychedelic stalwarts STUBB and the howling sound of Mountains.

Left Lane Cruiser commented:

We are totally jacked to be rockin at Black Deer Festival 2019. I hear there be many smokey whiskies and classic mests to feast upon so come on out and get loose and greasy with us!”

The Black Wizards commented:

“We played London for the first time last year at DesertFest and it was a great experience. We are stoked to cast the spell over the Deer Park!”

Duel commented:

We are extremely excited to bring our brand of Texas stoner metal to the UK for the first time in June 2019!! We are especially looking forward to Black Deer Fest. Can not wait for this!”

We’ve got a bunch more killer bands, custom bikes and some notorious after-show shenanigans all still to be announced, but for now we hope you’ll find something new to enjoy as we bring a whirlwind of the desert to the deer park. Stay tuned!”
