When: 8th-11th September 2016
Where: Tilburg, Netherlands
Incubate will once again be bringing cutting-edge culture to the Dutch town of Tilburg this September, and the third wave of acts shows off the even heavier side of the festival. The 25 acts span a wide range of genres, and include experimental duo Muscle and Marrow, death metal group Venom Prison and Father Murphy, bringing the sound occult psychedelia to the event.
Also added to the line-up are prog-metal group Ghold, hardcore outfit Nesseria, math-rock band The Ills, and post-rockers An Ocean of Storms. The new additions join a bill that already features noisepop group Deerhoof, legendary electronic outfit Silver Apples, and avant-garde supergroup Wrangler.
The festival’s artistic director, Vincent Koreman, said: “Incubate is a festival with a strong focus on heavy music in all its different shapes and sizes. That’s why we are very proud of today’s announcement which features enigmatic musician Father Murphy (who might be also be a reverend), the intense and evocative duo Muscle & Marrow and Welsh Death Metal outfit Venom Prison, among others.”
The festival will also feature a collaboration between British label Holy Roar Records and Dutch promoters Smithsfoodgroup DIY. They’ve invited five bands from Holy Roar’s roster to play, including Human Future and Torpor. Incubate are also working with Belgian festival Rock Herk to present a special collaboration between Belgian hardcore rockers VVONDS and Dutch noise artist Svartvit.
