Mikael Åkerfeldt to curate Roadburn Festival 2014

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 28th August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Opeth‘s Mikael Åkerfeld has agreed to curate the Roadburn Festival 2014 on Friday 14th April at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. This means that he will personally select bands for his special event and play a headline show with Opeth.

Opeth‘s body of work is highly respected by the Roadburn crowd, which has made Mikael an ideal choice to carry on the tradition that started in 2008 with David Tibet (Current 93) and has continued with the likes of NeurosisTom G. WarriorSunn 0)))Voivod and Jus Oborn (Electric Wizard). Mikael commented:

It’s with great honour that I accepted the invitation to be the curator for the 2014 Roadburn Festival. I’m pretty damn far from being a professional booker/promoter, and I’ve never been part in choosing bands for an event apart from bands that Opeth has toured with. So this is a first for me, but I have to say I’m very excited.

I’ve reached out to a handful of my favourite bands from the past and present. As of now it looks like it will be an amazing musical event. Still brainstorming about possible bands for this glorious festival but I already know that I’m going to be like a kid at Christmas. It will be amazing! Plain and simple. Obviously Opeth will perform as well, but to be quite honest with you, our own performance doesn’t get me nearly as excited as the thought of experiencing the bands that have shown interest. It will be remarkable and memorable. A celebration, bitches!
