Buckle up, beloved Freaks!

MONSTER MAGNET will play Freak Valley Festival!

Today brings confirmation of one of heavy-anything's most legendary bands -- MONSTER MAGNET -- will play Freak Valley Festival!

Not only them, but VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY and GEEZER will both make return appearances on our stage!

Why the hell would Monster Magnet need an introduction? More than 30 years on from their start, the legacy of Monster Magnet is simply unmatched. Not only were they among the first bands to tap into classic '70s hard rock, psych and space rock in a new generation of Satanic-drug-thing-you-wouldn't-understand attitude, but with frontman Dave Wyndorf as the core presence in the group, they gave us a singular weirdo icon as well as a catalog full of hits, tripouts, slam-home riffs and rock and roll from another dimension entirely. There are 7.75 billion or some such people on this wretched planet and still only one Monster Magnet. They're a must-see every night they're on stage, and we're honored to welcome them to Freak Valley for the first time ever.


Having last joined us in 2016, Villagers of Ioannina City come back to Freak Valley Festival following their second album, 2019's 'Age of Aquarius.' The Napalm Records release brought new spaciousness to the Greek outfit's style, and as they look to celebrate their 15th anniversary in 2022, we can't wait to find out what the years since we last saw them have seen them become on stage, especially as 'Age of Aquarius' did so much to expand their sound. Whether you were there six years ago or not, this is a return you will not want to miss. If you want a preview of what you're in for, check out their 2021 live album, 'Through Space and Time (Alive in Athens 2020).'


The Kings of Kingston, NY, first came to Siegen in 2017 and psych-blues-jammed their way right into our freaky hearts. Early last year, they joined forces with Italy's Heavy Psych Sounds and released 'Groovy' in Spring 2020. Not a great time for shows, as you might remember. Still, in hard times, Geezer's vibe was full-on and their easy-rolling spirit, embodied in the whiskey-vox of guitarist Pat Harrington, was a safe haven where one could go and make everything feel right again. With as much love as Geezer put into what they do, let alone the party that results, there was no way we weren't going to bring them back.

We'll have another announcement for our Wednesday lineup and more on tickets and all that, but before we go, thank you, thank you, thank you for your support of Freak Valley Festival. We're putting together something truly special for 2022, and it wouldn't be possible at all without your passion inspiring our passion. It means the world to us to be able to bring you this fest, and now more than ever, it's crucial we don't take that for granted. Thank you.

Still many more announcements to come!
