Another batch of cool bands

We are very excited to announce these next six bands that will bring us up around the halfway mark of the line-up. Don’t forget to head over to Billetto for your ticket!

Lewd Flesh (dk)

Finally back after a long-ish hiatus, these locals will serve up stoner doom with a touch of psychedelica.


Confusion Master (de)

In their own words: “Electric sabbath action doom.” That really says it better than we ever could.


Cult Of Occult (f)

Imagine having your soul destroyed very, very slowly. This is not happy music.


Regn (no)

“Two guys with too much gear playing as loud as possible”


Guevnna (j)

All the way from Tokyo, Guevnna are returning to Copenhagen with the recent release of their first full length of their own brand of crushing sludge.


Shakhtyor (de)

Our last announcement of today is a german three-piece playing a
unique brand of instrumental, atmospheric doom.


More Bands!

Today we have another two bands for you. Check them out and head over to Billetto for your ticket!

Horse Latitudes (sf)

With just bass, bass, synth and drums, Horse Latitudes are bound to bring one of the heaviest shows on the festival. Get ready to be droned!


Sunken (dk)

Stepping a bit out of our comfortzone, we bring you upcoming danish black metallers Sunken. Equal parts atmosphere and pummeling, be sure not to miss this.


Stay tuned for more announcements soon!

First announcements!


Finally we are ready with the first announcement for Northern Discomfort 2017. We have three great bands for you today, so be sure to check them out:

Iron Witch (uk)

Hailing from Liverpool, these Brits will bring with them their first
full length ‘A Harrowed Dawn’ which will showcase some of the very
bleakest sludge/doom out there today.


Toner Low (nl)

Slow, heavy tunes about weed is the order of the day when the dutch
masters of everything stoned once again visits Copenhagen.


Barabbas (f)

Classic stoner/doom in the vein of St. Vitus, but with a little more
heft, with lyrics shouted in french.


Today is also the day we open the gates for the ticket sale, so be sure to head over to Billetto and get yours!

With a single-day ticket at 125 DKk (17€) and a two-day ticket at 200 DKk (27€) how could you say no?!

Band announcements!

Finally, we are ready to reveal the full line-up for Northern Discomfort 2016! We are very excited to see all of these amazing bands. Go to the Line-up section to find the list and links to their music. And then go to the Ticket section to get your ticket!


We are proud to present the very first edition of Northern Discomfort, a brand new DIY doom festival. We were all very sad to see Heavy Days in Doomtown turn the key, and decided that Copenhagen should not be without its springtime doom. We will start announcing bands by the end of this month, but we can say already that it’s looking really good. It is going to be very heavy!

Stay tuned for more info.
