A brand new one day festival, Curated by Cult of Luna, has been announced for May. Taking place in the heart of London, the day-long event, Presented by MAMA, NMC Live, Metal Hammer & PROG, looks set to be a breath taking new way of experiencing the hauntingly progressive music of acts such as Cult Of Luna and God is an Astronaut. Taking place on Saturday 10th May 2014 in London at The Forum, The Dome & the Boston Music Room, this will be a spectacular event.
Here’s what the press release has to say: “Saturday 10th May will see London host an audio-visual experience built around a concept and line up curated and headlined by Sweden’s CULT OF LUNA. An artist who for over a decade has helped mould and expand the notion of what heavy music can be, the diverse musicians they have put together should come as no surprise to those familiar with their music.
The second wave of bands announced is lead by one of the world’s most intense, musically – and visually – inventive post-rock bands: GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT. Joining them in The Forum will be the multifarious heavy layers of Justin Broadrick’s post-metal beast JESU. The Swedish north will blow through in the form of the combined might of Breach and The Ocean: a UK exclusive for THE OLD WIND. Veering perhaps further to the leftfield, we have Amenra member Matthieu Vandekerckhove’s ambient and experimental SYNDROME project. Finally, following their European tour with 65daysofstatic, Australia’s SLEEPMAKESWAVES complete the second band announcement.”

The cosmological redshift is caused by the expansion of space. The wavelength of light increases as it traverses the expanding universe. Unable to assume that we have a special place within this universe, the redshift suggests to us that everything is moving away from everything else…
We may not be able to go beyond the redshift, but we can certainly think beyond it. We are bringing together artists who expand within their space – artists who create something special within this space.
Tickets are priced at £30 + booking fee. 3 venues, 1 wristband, 12:00 p.m doors.
