Ulver to perform special headline set at Roadburn 2022

Ulver’s reputation as experimental electronic legends precedes the group wherever they go. Since transitioning to the style on 1998’s Themes from William Blake’s Marriage of Heaven and Hell, the Norwegian act have awed us with eight solo LPs in addition to soundtracks, collaborations and more. The Norsemen last appeared at Roadburn in 2017, supporting then-new LP The Assassination of Julius Caesar, complete with a spellbinding light show.

We are thrilled to announce that Ulver will perform on the Roadburn stage once again next year, twenty-five years since their inception. Their latest record, Flowers of Evil, will feature front and centre as Ulver makes their return to live performances with us. Not only will we all be embracing the return of this iconic band and celebrating a return to the hallowed venues of Roadburn – for all of us, both and off the stage –  the band also promises a unique show that honours the quarter-century milestone.

“We are very excited to finally be getting back in the saddle, after all this time, the cancelled tour of 2020, and our last album, Flowers of Evil, which we have yet to present live. And what better place to kick it off, a new cycle, than the exact same place we kicked off The Assassination of Julius Caesar on stage back in 2017: the grand and mighty Roadburn. We are grateful to Walter, Becky and the rest for keeping their doors open and always making us wolves feel welcome. See ya ‘22 @ 013.” – Ulver, Oslo, October 2021

There is no stage more fitting for this special Ulver performance than Roadburn. In addition to 2012 and 2017 performances at the festival, Ulver are well known in heavy and experimental music circles for their dedication to plumbing new sonic depths, unafraid to leave past sounds behind them. Their headlining performance will be a continuation of Ulver’s unpredictable yet thrilling career arc and of the passion for innovative music that fuels Roadburn.
