NEW TALENTS COMPLETE THE PROGRAMME FOR UPCOMING SCANDINAVIAN MUSIC

PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY 11.5.2022

Experiences
26 new acts complete the programme for the stages Rising and Countdown, dedicated to the stars-to-be in the music scene.


The first days of the festival – from Sunday to Tuesday – are dedicated to upcoming music acts. The talents, the growth segment, the new class. They go by many names.

We have dedicated stages to the talent pool since year 2000 – and this effort has not become any less important over the years. Especially seen in the light of the past two years when COVID-19 put everything on hold. This made it impossible for new artists to meet an audience.

So, this year we have taken our time booking the programme. We want to include all the latest trends.

Now, we have 26 new acts ready, and they complete the programme for the talent pool who play on the stages Rising and Countdown.

A wide field of acts with different expressions
The performing acts represent many different musical styles and expressions, like a small concentrate of the main programme. No matter which kind of music you like, there is definitely something up your alley.

You can experience some of the most sharp-edged tongues in rap, including Lamin, Pind, Yakuza and Norwegian act Musti

If you like the guitar amps to be turned up to 11, you need to listen to the Faroese punk band Joe & The Shitboys or the Norwegian punk rockers in Daufødt while Icelandic band Korter í flog dissolve all rules for composition and Danish band Gabestok make a h*** of a racket with their punishing black metal.

Do you like your pop music with melodies that are like honey, you need to dive into Bathsheba, Blæst, Eee Gee and Lucky Lo.

If you prefer your music a bit unorthodox, playful and challenging, don’t miss Varnrable’s experimental moody pop while Smag på dig selv set fire to two saxophones and drums while Norwegian duo Soft As Snow makes warped electro pop with a clubby atmosphere.

We also have a handful of resident DJs – Amanda Baun, Prom Night and Tjiquita – ready to deliver nice atmopshere on the Countdown stage between the performing acts.
