IN-DEPTH CULT OF LUNA PODCAST LEADING UP TO THEIR BEYOND THE REDSHIFT FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND!
Beyond The Redshift
An event curated by Cult Of Luna
Saturday 10th May will see London host an audio-visual experience built around a concept and line up curated and headlined by Sweden’s Cult Of Luna. An artist who for over a decade has helped mould and expand the notion of what heavy music can be, the diverse musicians they have put together should come as no surprise to those familiar with their music. Budding cosmologists might get the thinking behind the festival’s name, but in case you’re wondering, this is what the organisers have to say about it:
“The cosmological redshift is caused by the expansion of space. The wavelength of light increases as it traverses the expanding universe. Unable to assume that we have a special place within this universe, the redshift suggests to us that everything is moving away from everything else… We may not be able to go beyond the redshift, but we can certainly think beyond it. We are bringing together artists who expand within their space – artists who create something special within this space.” So now you know.
In this podcast, CoL’s Johannes talks in-depth about the band, the festival itself, as well as interviewing The Old Wind who are scheduled to play.
