Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates a significant impression by remaining silent.

Be it one of their live shows, be it one of their albums: Germans MY SLEEPING KARMA never fail to create an unique and hypnotic score of epic proportions that is bound to send the listener on deep mental journeys. On their fifth album Moksha, the instrumental groove rockers show us their most varied side: blusterous waves of riffs embrace fragile melody lines, Eastern mysticism has its place and ghostly sound shivers lead eternal rhythms to new horizons. Yes, this word is abused way too often these days – but My Sleeping Karma are pure magic.


Unsere Buddies MAMMOTH MAMMOTH nehmen dann mal wieder das Vortex auseinander!!

MAMMOTH MAMMOTH are a heavy rock band from Melbourne Australia that smash the shit out of their stoner, glam, doom, punk and psychedelic rock influences.

They've tagged their sound as 'Good-time-murder-fuzz' - and it's consequent effect as, 'the sound that sometimes kills unicorns' and 'more awesome than God's tits!'


SWEDISH DEATH CANDY ist eine wirklich internationale Band, nur ausgerechnet aus Schweden kommt keiner aus dem Quartett. Die Mitglieder stammen aus der britischen Musikstadt London, aus der südkoreanischen Metropole Seoul und aus der italienischen Hafenstadt Bari. Schon diese Zusammenstellung verspricht einen ziemlich wilden musikalischen Crossover. 2014 haben sie sich in London zusammen gefunden und ihre Band gegründet.

Swedish Death Candy macht psychedelischen Stoner-Rock mit aufjaulenden Gitarren und knüppelharten Schlagzeug. 


Christian Berghoff and Sebastian Haas are two lifelong friends from Saarbrucken, Germany who back in 2007 formed the band PRETTY LIGHTNING. The duo tick off a long list of influences – from 60s psych and delta blues through to krautrock and drone – and the end-product is a heady dose of raw, twisted psychedelic-blues recalling an utterly visceral, mind-blowing mix of Oh Sees, Wooden Shjips and early Black Keys.


THE DIRTY DENIMS play Happy Hardrock: hardrock that makes you feel good in a heartbeat. Combined with rock 'n roll, powerpop and a slice of punkrock it sounds like AC/DC, KISS, Joan Jett, Ramones and The Donnas. When playing live these rockchicks and guys are at their best; an energetic show of a band that exudes fun, likes audience participation and doesn't taking themselves too seriously.

The Dutch festival Lowlands defined their music as very tight punk- and hardrock, with riffs inspired by Ramones and AC/DC. Frontwoman Mirjam delivers the most recognizable element: a voice like Joan Jett and Debbie Harry. With their catchy songs and energy they will they will make you throw your fists in the air and scream “YEAH”!


HAIR OF THE DOG make their German debut, taking time out of writing their fourth studio album, to rock Freak Valley Xmas.


Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, the retro rock trio have forged a loyal and devoted fan base around the world. Signed to infamous Berlin based label, Kozmik Artifactz, and with three studio albums and one Live at Roadburn record due for release late 2018 under their belts, Hair of the Dog have become a staple name throughout the underground scene.


The trio promise a show to remember, and will deliver a ferocious set comprising of their most popular material spanning their entire discography - as well as exclusive, never heard before material from their up and coming, untitled fourth album.
