Brainstorm Festival Announces First Bands for 2019 Edition, Norwegian Gothic-Metal Band Sirenia Headliner


Sirenia (NO) is the headliner of the 12th edition of the Brainstorm Festival that takes place on Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th of November 2019 in Gigant at Apeldoorn. Next to this Norwegian gothic-metal band we are announcing Cellar Darling (CH) and War Of Ages (USA). More bands will be the will be announced in the near future.

If you want to experience this annual festival at a sharp rate, you can buy early bird tickets until Friday the 17th of May until 16.00 through Gigant or the Brainstorm webshop. This will give you access to both of the festival days. After the 17th, the regular presale will start, including the sale of day tickets.

With Sirenia the Brainstorm Festival has an absolute star in their genre. The band toured Europe earlier this year to present their new album “Arcane Astral Aeons” and during the Brainstorm Festival that party will be repeated extensively.

Eluveitie fans have undoubtedly already picked up Cellar Darling‘s new album. The progressive folk-rock band from Switzerland, led by singer Anna Murphy (ex-Eluveitie), sounds phenomenally.

Melodious and aggressive: that combination can be found in War Of Ages. The American metalcore band has performed at the Brainstorm Festival twice before and the return to promote new work. War Of Ages is a guarantee for a big party.

Brainstorm Festival was formed in the beginning of 2008 with a clear mission to enter a new era of music festivals as we know it. Brainstorm Festival is known as an independent cultural rock- and metalfestival, that provides a stage to both new talent as well as metal-dinosaurs. The festival combines hardrock with extreme metal. Besides concerts Brainstorm Festival offers a program in the theater of the club with acoustic performances, interviews, debate and competitions. Also there is an exposition taking place each year, plus a small metal-market.
