It seems that THE go-to stop in the European festival circuit for fans of prog and djent has got to be Euroblast. Over the years, the German festival has hosted genre giants and promising up-and-comers, and the lineup gets impressive by the year. Here’s what we know so far for the eighth edition of the fest, via Got-Djent:

Uneven Structure (FR)
The Interbeing (DK)
Akeldama (US)
Synthetic Breed (AU)
In-Quest (BE)
Joncofy (UA)
Humanity’s Last Breath (SE)
Nexus (ES)
Animals As Leaders (US)
Scar Symmetry (SE)
TesseracT (UK)
Circle of Contempt (FI)

I wish I could go this year, but I’ll try to set my sights on 2013 as a graduation gift for myself. We’ll see where it goes; the trip out to Cologne and to see the festival would likely  cost me around $2.5-4k, depending on how comfortable I want to be. For those lucky enough to go this year though, enjoy it! Report back with your findings!

More bands are expected to be announced soon. Limited early-bird tickets are now available for 89 euros, or roughly $114. Definitely a great price for such an event!
