Once started as a post rock festival, anno 2017 Dunk Festival is some much more, something I can only applaud. There was ambient, drones, jazz and doom metal. There were electronic sounds and if you think about it, some parts by Ashtoreth were a-capella tunes. So there is diversity, but the questions is, how far can you take diversity into a festival like Dunk!? What's next? Who will be the next headliners or the next surprises? Will Spoiwo, Cecilia::Eyes or AmenRa return?
For this article, I started browsing through my music collection, which goes from Brahms over Russian Circles to Tiamat, Iron Maiden, The Levellers, Pink Floyd and all the way to Excrementory Grindfuckers and Oranssi Pazuzu. And that's only the non-electronic section. I looked at the records and wondered "would the Dunk! audience appreciate this?". You'd be surprised by some of the bands that made the cut.
