Originally a spin-off of the Roadburn web site, the Roadburn Festival has emerged as an event in its own right. It brings together bands, fans and media from around the world. Despite its international acclaim, Roadburn retains an underground vibe and ethics, but with seriously big-league production values. Pre-sales start November 11.
