Desert Hel is a stoner festival being hosted at On The Rocks in Helsinki, Finland. Featuring a host of desert, stoner and psych rock bands, the inaugural edition was intended for 2020 but would be postponed to 2021.


The inaugural Desert Hel was to be hosted on 24 and 25 April 2020 at On The Rocks in Helsinki, Finland. Along with featuring Lonely Kamel and Lucifer as headliners, the festival also notably features a Kyuss cover band in One Inch Band. One Inch Band was intending to cover the exact same set that Kyuss performed at Bizarre Festival in 1995.[1] Notably a pre-fest known as Desert Tre was to be hosted at Klubi in Tampere, Finland on 23 April 2020. However the festival would be postponed to 2021 due to The CO-VID19 Pandemic.
