The Desert Comes To France
Some of the greatest and biggest names in the desert rock* genre will be at Hellfest this summer.
These include former Kyuss members John Garcia, Brant Bjork and Alfredo Hernandez, with Garcia actually doing a full on Kyuss set!
Bjork will be there with his band Brant Bjork & The Bros, while Hernandez is a member of experimental band Yawning Man (with Gary Arec on guitar).
To add to the stoner atmosphere, Mondo Generator (featuring for Queens Of The Stone Age member Nick Oliveri) are also on the bill.
Hellefest happens at Clisson in France, from June 18-20. The headliners for this event are to be revealed on February 26.
