Desertfest London – Day 2 (Saturday)

The second day of Desertfest had an excellent balanced line-up, and one thing was for certain: Camden was ready to party to some all-time classic tunes.

Hailing from San Francisco, Brume ramped up the psychedelic riffs and brought the doom. The Underworld was rammed for Brume and it was impossible to get into the lower stage area for them. Standing on tiptoes to see them, their sonic assault was stunning and hypnotic. A lot like Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, the band’s siren call vocals were entrancing and the ability to craft an ensnaring doom epic deserves a standing ovation. I regret not buying a T-shirt, they were a class act who deserve high fives all around.
