Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt To Curate Roadburn Festival
He'll be in charge of proceedings on Friday 11, and he's already confirmed his own band Opeth will appear, alongside Locrian, True Widow, and artist-in-residence The Heads, featuring John McBain. They join the reunited Loop as star attractions.
Akerfeldt reports: "It's with great honour that I accept the invitation. I'm pretty damn far from being a professional booker or promoter, and I've never been part in choosing bands for an event, apart from those that Opeth has toured with. So this is a first for me – but I have to say I'm very excited."
He says he's already made contact with some of his personal favourite outfits, although he's still brainstorming over the full bill. "It will be an amazing musical event," he vows. more.
