of all, we would like to thank you for the patience that you have shown
during all these months, a time that has meant a before and after and
that has especially punished our sector, leaving many friends and
colleagues on the road with no option of return.
is why we are especially proud to continue standing and to be able to
launch a statement in which 7 artists that we are passionate about will
form the line up for the next edition of Kristonfest 2022, which will
take place in the Mon venue in Madrid on Saturdays 7 and May 14, 2022. Tickets are already on sale through the festival website: www.kristonfest.com
first day will be headlined by the Swedish WITCHCRAFT, probably one of
the most desired and longed-for bands to see right now. We already had
them confirmed for the 2020 and 2021 editions but for reasons that we
all know it was completely impossible to enjoy them ... it is said that
the third time is the charm and we hope so.
with this name, SLIFT, a three-headed sonic whirlwind propelled by The
Stooges, Hawkwind, MC5, Kyuss or Can and that looks more contemporary
bands like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Wooden Shijps or Moon
Duo in the face. They will come to present their huge "Ummon" that
everyone is talking about.

pride and band with which any lover of sound exploration, psychedelia
and improvisation will enjoy an incomparable cosmic journey.

it is one of the best psychedelic rock bands in the world. We already
had them in a last edition in which they left everyone with their mouths
open and wanting more. Now Isaiah also plays guitar in The Black Crowes
but that didn't complicate it when we asked them to go back to
From Palm Springs (USA) another of the highlights will be to see the
staging of STÖNER, commanded by two godfathers of desert rock such as
Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri, both founders of Kyuss, also Mondo
Generator, Ché, Fu Manchu, Bloodcot, etc ... and Ryan Gut (drums) from
the band Brant Bjork & The Bros. You don't call your band Stöner if
you've never heard the word before and, as their track record attests,
it's not the first time these three musicians have embarked on a project
of this caliber.
were confirmed in the edition that we had to cancel due to the health
crisis, so we had a debt with them that we can finally pay off! This
quartet from Sweden shines like few others in the psychedelic-rock and
heavy-blues skies of the last decade. They drink from the influences
that the 1960s left for history, contributing to their set list a more
direct, atmospheric and forceful sound.
complete the line-up, nothing better than new blood, the Norwegians
SLOMOSA burst onto the scene with a most interesting and appetizing
cover letter: Riffs that take you to the frozen dunes of the
Scandinavian tundra, muscular and greasy rock on the path of classics
like Fu Manchu and the early Queens Of The Stone Age. A good new
generation onslaught that confirms the good health of the European
