SIDEWAYS WILL NOT TAKE PLACE IN SUMMER 2020

23.04.2020

According to the decision made yesterday by the Finnish government and health authorities, all large-scale events in Finland will be banned until July 31st 2020 to prevent corona virus from further spreading. With heavy hearts we have to announce that there will be no Sideways Festival this year.

We are heartbroken and sorry for everyone who was looking forward to this year’s festival. We want to specifically thank you for all the love and support we’ve received over social media and by email in the course of this spring. We will get through this together and will together make next year bigger and better than ever before!

As of now we’ll direct our focus on year 2021. Artist discussions have already been started and our goal is to make next year’s program the best ever in the history of Sideways.

Sideways 2021 dates will be announced as soon as possible and we hope to be able to share first news about summer 2021 artists at the same time.

We are currently figuring out the best ways for our customers to deal with the purchased tickets. All details, including ticket refunds and possibilities to transfer tickets to next year will be announced simultaneously with the new festival dates. Ticket refunds will be possible after the announcement, so we kindly advise you not to contact ticket retailers before that. Thank you for your understanding and patience while waiting for more information.

If you have any questions or thoughts regarding the situation, please contact us by email at info@fullsteam.fi.

Keep safe and take care of each other!

WASTE OF SPACE ORCHESTRA'S WORLD EXCLUSIVE SHOW

12.02.2019

We are extremely proud to announce the world exclusive show in 2019 for Waste of Space Orchestra, psychedelic metal band featuring members of Oranssi Pazuzu ja Dark Buddha Rising

Syntheosis began as a commissioned piece for Roadburn Festival. The fest, which began as a small-scale gathering of stoner rock addicts has evolved over the years into a four-day celebration of heavy music in all of its possible forms and interpretations, from riff-worship to punishing soundscapes and beyond. The list of Roadburn performers over the years is a veritable who’s who of underground heavy culture, with everyone from  Neurosis and Sleep to Godflesh having performed at the event.

Syntheosis the commissioned piece was prepared at the request of the festival and performed there in April 2018 in front of over 3000 people. Syntheosis the album is not a live recording but a carefully prepared studio interpretation, on which the ten musicians worked over the spring and summer of 2018. The album was recorded and mixed by Julius Mauranen, who also worked on Oranssi Pazuzu’s Värähtelijä. The album can be digested as a challenging, engaging psych metal record or as a dimension-spanning one-hour performance consisting of nine parts. The work recounts a story of three beings and their deep search for knowledge.
