Nieuws | dunk!festival 2022: we gaan nog even door.


En huplahoi, wat te denken van nog eens vier nieuwe namen voor dit fantastische festival. Voor het eerst niet meer op de gekende lokatie, maar wel in Kunstencentrum Vooruit (Gent).

Ja het zal even wennen zijn, vooral omdat het intieme, gezellige bospodium zal gemist worden. Anderzijds hoeft niemand zich zorgen te maken wat het weer betreft en blijft er een verschil in sfeer wat de diverse podia betreft. Knop omdraaien en genieten dus!


- Persbericht -


๐—Ÿ๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—บ๐˜†๐—ฟ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ป๐˜†๐—ธ This veteran Ukranian composer is something a bit different than weโ€™re accustomed to at the festival, but his inclusion marks an opportunity to witness something akin to a force of nature. His fusion of melody and virtuosity is as beautiful as it is intense, and we count ourselves extremely lucky to have the opportunity to view such a striking marriage.


๐—œ๐—บ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜‚ ๐—˜๐—น These Swedish ambient dream pop luminaries recently became an exciting new addition to the dunk!records family, releasing their stripped back and strikingly beautiful 2021 record Distance on our label. Meditative and moving, their music explores minimalism to uncover extraordinary melodic heights, creating for the listener a world that is expansive and alive. Donโ€™t underestimate the softness of their delivery, because once you allow their music in youโ€™ll find a uniquely profound experience near at hand.


๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ป 2022 marks a decade and a half in the post-metal game for this Italian outfit, and their veteran savvy and maturity is on full display on their most recent record, 2020โ€™s Del fuoco. Translating to โ€œof fire,โ€ itโ€™s an apt descriptor, as the record indicates painstaking effort devoted to the construction of a landscape permeated with a sense of seething fury just under the surface. This is a band that recognizes the vital importance of patience as a key factor in the enduring resonance of post-metal, and weโ€™re excited for them to bring their years of experience to the dunk! stage.


๐——๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ If this name doesnโ€™t sound familiar, donโ€™t worry, itโ€™s not just you; this young Belgian band reached out to us with their debut EP not long ago, and we enjoyed it so much that we knew immediately they needed to be at this yearโ€™s event. Bringing together the best elements of post-rock and post-hardcore, they feature snarling, antagonistic vocals that complement some seriously powerful riffs. We think these newcomers have hit upon quite an impressive fusion, and weโ€™re certain youโ€™ll feel the same.
