For all of us missing the live arena, Enslaved have announced an innovative digital festival. A combined effort between three festivals – Roadburn, Beyond The Gates and Summer Breeze – will see the Norwegians prerform three different shows. In ‘we’re all in this together’ spirit, the fivesome’s first festival date on July 30th – in co-operation with Roadburn – will entertain fans’ favourite songs to create a career spanning set.
Their second set on August 20th – this time in cooperation with Beyond The Gates Festival – will be a Below The Lights set; the third and final date for Summer Breeze will see audiences treated to a presentation of their new album Utgard – The Journey Within in its entirely.
Guitarist Ivar states: “‘We must stick apart’ is a proverb of Discordianism (a religion I might or might not have just made up) that might fit the situation we are all in now. We are all isolated in various degrees; and we all miss live music. So, we have stuck apart and with our fantastic team of super-people in management, label and booking, plus three of our best friends who happen to be the very creme de la creme of European Festivals; we are now able to present this digital festival-tour. We are already hard at work preparing sets and shows that will make this one for the (e-)books. Thank you for your support, faith in us and patience – to have fans like you is an absolute privilege. See you in the ether!”
All three shows – which will be availble to watch via the band’s YouTube channel – will be completely free, with an optional donation, the chance to buy special merchandise and fringe events. We’ll add more details as they become available, meantime, check out the new video for the track ‘Homebound’.
