This is kind of cool.
Enslaved’s guitarist Ivar Bjørnson will team with Wardruna’s Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik to curate the 2015 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands.
The fest is set for April 10 at 013 with both of their bands also planning special sets that honor the Norse gods.
As curators, both Ivar and Einar will personally select the bands for their curated Roadburn event, named “Houses of the Holistic.”
The Norwegian pair, both former Roadburn performers, have played an important role in bringing together the past, present and future sounds of hard rock, progressive metal, and alternative scenes, which makes them the ideal choice to carry on the tradition that began in 2008 with David Tibet of Current 93, and continued with Neurosis, Tom G. Warrior, Sunn 0))), Voivod, Jus Oborn of Electric Wizard and Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, who curated this year’s event.
