PHILM (USA) featt. Dave Lombardo (SLAYER, FANTÔMAS, GRIP INC.) will headline the 6th Headway Festival. This one you either love or hate. And needless to say, we like that! Together with his companions Gerry Nestler (from progressive cult band CIVIL DEFIANCE) and Pancho Tomaselli (legendary funk band WAR), Lombardo masterfully revived the concept of a power trio. PHILM is a sonic experimentation showcasing decades of musical influences and experience. While rooted in sixties and seventies psychedelia, the music of PHILM ranges from thrash and prog to (post) punk, garage, surf, sludge and stoner, before funk, soul, free jazz and fusion come shining through. Its like a sampler of the coolest record collection ever, which makes it impossible to put a label on this band. With this headliner we ask ourselves: actually what ís progressive music? We don't have a clear cut answer. And for PHILM, they thrive on raw energy and the pure joy of playing live. It´s the same electrifying power we felt when we rekindled the fire of Headway Festival! And its that energy on stage we sought in all acts that are included in this years line-up. Tickets and info at www.headwayfestival.com. Quick updates and conversation at facebook.com/headwayfestival.
