In just five days Culthe Fest 2019 will begin in Münster, Germany, and for the second year No Clean Singing is delighted to partner with Unaussprechliche Culthe in helping to spread the word.
This is a two-day event, with performances on April 20 and April 21, and it features a remarkable line-up of bands from the realms of black metal, death metal, post-metal, and dark folk, plus an art exhibition (with works by Jeff Grimal, Irrwisch, and Carmen Alba), a panel discussion with Ernie of Krachmucker TV, and nightly after-shows.
The headlining bands are tremendous: Panopticon (performing in Germany for the first time), Sulphur Aeon, and Dornenreich (performing mostly songs from Hexenwind and Her von welken Nächten). But the rest of the line-up is also enormously appealing.
Across two nights and three stages at Cafe Sputnik, Sputnikhalle, and Triptychon, the complete line-up is as follows:
RITUALS OF THE DEAD HAND
SANGRE DE MUERDAGO
SPECTRALE (2nd set)
On April 20, doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and the performances will run from 13:00–24:00. On April 21, doors will open at 15:30h, and performances will run from 16:00–23:00h. The after-parties on both nights (which are free for festival-goers) will begin upon the conclusion of the stage shows.
In addition, the running order on both nights has now been announced and can be seen in the poster below:
