Devilstone 2019 Presents the Festival Programme

devilstone programa eng 2019
  • The 11th edition of Devilstone will electrify Dainuva valley once again – see the full programme!
  • More than 50 acts to play across all the festival stages on 11-14 of July.
  • From psychedelia from Tokyo to Siberian post-punk, from British alternative to exposition on aliens and Scandinavian dark humour... Devilstone 2019 promises heaps of yet undiscovered musical experiences and a colourful weekend.

The West Stage remains the heart of Devilstone – here, the Swedes WATAIN will hold their bloody black metal mass, SODOM will make the valley tremble with their wild German thrash, and the Dutch CARACH ANGREN will perform a true avant-garde spectacle. Meanwhile, at the East Stage, the psychedelic punks TURBOWOLF will raise the roof, TESSERACT will mesmerise with proggy riffs and powerful vocals. Also at the East – Japanese hippies KIKAGAKU MOYO, alternative hurricane from Leeds PULLED APART BY HORSES, rebellious Brits THE BLINDERS and rock’n’rollers from France KO KO MO. Barbablu zone will host the Turkish post-punk pearl SHE PAST AWAY, the summery vibes of the Danish LUST FOR YOUTH, the deceptively innocent pop of SHORTPARIS, and the apocalyptic ravers IC3PEAK.

During the day, Gamma stage will hold open discussions on music-related topics, the legendary MC GROWL contest, and other workshops; though once the guitars are silent it will transform into a night-time cinema. The centrepiece of this year’s MASS HYPNOSIS is the exposition of dark humour comics by Icelandic cartoonist Hugleikur Dagsson. Those looking for active leisure time can participate in the annual football and volleyball tournaments and conquer the Monster Energy ramp and those who never tire will be entertained all night by the club Lizdas crew.
