Chron Goblin invited to London’s Desertfest

Chron Goblin is about to make history.

The Calgary four-piece has been invited to play at London’s Desertfest music festival, and as the first Canadian band to ever receive the honour, Chron Goblin is entering their name in the record books and introducing Brits to the crushing power of Canadian rock.

Joining a huge line-up of talent from across Britain, Europe and the U.S., Chron Goblin is completing an impressive collection of artists that is set to blow fans away. Over 50 bands make up a roster that includes an increasing number of well-known stoner and doom rock bands, the majority of which come from the UK and have been hugely successful worldwide. This is the first time a Canadian band has been invited to join, setting a precedent for Canadian music and giving authority to Chron Goblin and their supportive Calgary fanbase.

Desertfest is the largest underground rock festival in the United Kingdom. The three-day festival takes place from April 26 – 28 and will be held at four large venues across Camden, allowing more music fans to experience the event. Last year’s festival sold out quickly and according to festival organizers, this year’s shows will be “bigger, badder, and ready to tear you guys a new one”.

For more information about Desertfest and to see the full line-up, visit the website or Facebook. Tickets are nearly sold out but for fans who act quickly, this is an event that shouldn’t be missed.
