GALLERY: 28.4.2023 Desert Hel – Day 1 @ On the Rocks, Helsinki


Psychedelic rock events are slowly and surely becoming my new favorite thing, which meant that when a new edition of Desert Hel was announced for April 28th-29th, 2023, at On the Rocks in Helsinki, we were definitely interested in checking it out. This was doubled when familiar names like POLYMOON and JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES were announced, and deepened as intriguing bigger names like KALEIDOBOLT and GREENLEAF were also available for a first-time sampler! Unfortunately, POLYMOON‘s schedule didn’t end up syncing up, but luckily, FROM GROTTO were able to step in and replace them!
