Nik Turner’s Hawkwind, Witch Mountain and Hedersleben at Vangelis

Nik Turner’s Hawkwind
with special guests
Singer, composer, saxophonist and flutist Nik Turner fronts his version of space rock pioneers Hawkwind. Formed in 1969, Hawkwind is considered a key link between hippie and punk cultures. Also on the bill is Krautrock progressive band Hedersleben, whose concept began in the German town of the same name, and top tier purveyors of traditional American doom metal, Witch Mountain. “…Few can match vocalist Uta Plotkin’s raw soul, a gut level howl that can just as easily turn into a sinister coo. Finally, those massive, rumbling doom riffs aren’t just there to get your slow motion headbang on (well, they’re good for that, too), those riffs want to bore into your skull, crack open a beer and make you a lifer.
