It's impossible to ignore the kind of impact and influence Desertfest have had since it's inception. With London serving as it's stronghold the event has expanded in to other areas across Europe in recent years with the continual growth now moving towards it's first edition across the pond. Taking place across 26th-28th April, Desertfest is all set to roll in to the Big Apple.

That's right, Desertfest New York will launch in 2019, utilising both Saint Vitus Bar (26th April) and The Well (27th-28th April) to deliver all things heavy. The first nine acts for Desertfest New York 2019 have also been revealed:

The Skull
The Atomic Bitchwax
Mirror Queen

Stay tuned for more acts to be announced soon.

Commenting on their involvement, Monolord stated the following, "Every time we've played the Desertfest's in Europe it's been overwhelming. Great vibes and devoted crowds; we're proud to be a part of the first edition of this in New York. Stoked to see you there!". Adding to this excitement Elder's Nick Di'Salvo commented, "The Desertfest is an (ironically) urban musical excursion for heavy bands, and has been badly needed by the States for many years. We've had the fortune to play several editions across Europe and the UK and Elder are beyond excited to be part of the first ever US line-up. We'll be bringing some new material to the festival and will try our hardest to make it the best Desertfest yet!"
