A sincere thanks to all of you wondering and wandering colourful souls coming from seemingly everywhere this weekend, and thanks for bringing your attention and positive energy! Arigatou, merci, takk and such to all the acts that graced our 3 stages giving what they got and for just as well blending in happily with most of the aforementioned around all the show madness.
We’ve witnessed a delightful array of memorable, engaging moments and performances spread throughout the fest. Last but not Liszt very much bedankt to the really hard working crew in Patronaat and everyone involved, giving us as the Complexiteam the opportunity to blend in with all of you while knowing each and everything got taken care of and looked after so well.
We’ll continue the adventurous heavy music train to newer heights with some first next stops this month still. All the best for now and we’ll use this evening furthermore as how this day was mentioned in that Holy book while checking the audio-visual aftermath.
TIMESCHEDULE Below you’ll find the full time schedule. Doors open at 13.00 and Our Oceans will grace the Aristides Stage 2 at 13.30. Make sure to catch this amazing band with one of their debut shows!
DRAGGED INTO THE SUNLIGHT Sadly Dragged Into The Sunlight have cancelled their performance at Complexity Fest 2020 due to personal reasons. With that being said, we wouldn’t be Complexity if we didn’t come up with a worthy replacement and after ‘the great hunt’ we present you one of the most exciting experimental black metal bands hailing from the UK: Lychgate.
