MACHINE HEAD and SEPULTURA have been confirmed for the Desert Rock Festival 2005, which will be held on March 25 at the Dubai Country Club (Rugby Field) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A total of seven bands are expected to appear on the bill, which will include performances by Dubai's own NERVECELL (who recently signed a distribution deal with Atolinga Records) and JULIANA DOWN (who opened for THE RASMUS last year).

MACHINE HEAD and SEPULTURA's appearance at the Desert Rock Festival will mark the first time an international heavy/thrash metal band has performed in the Arabian Gulf.
