Desert Storm // The Spohie Lancaster Stage // BOA22 // Sunday August 14th
2022 marks the 15-year anniversary of Oxford’s Desert Storm. 15 years of crushing riffs, power & volume & 5 studio albums mixing heavy metal, sludge, doom, and post rock / prog.
Over the years the band have toured extensively throughout the UK & Europe headlining and touring / supporting the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Skindred, Orange Goblin, Red Fang, Karma To Burn, Weedeater, American Head Charge, Raging Speedhorn, Conjurer to name a few, whilst also gracing the stages of some of Europe’s best open air and in-door festivals.
The Oxford 5-piece riff machine are looking forward to returning to Bloodstock’s Sophie Lancaster stage next year to celebrate the anniversary, after a memorable set on that stage back in 2016.
