The melodic folk rock band of José González Junip will engulf the festival guests in the ultimate idyllic summer ambience. Although initially created only as a hobby band by González and two of his childhood friends in the early 90’s, in 2000 Junip re-emerged as a refined, ethereally psychedelic folk rock band. Their highly anticipated and light-heartedly dynamic debut record Fields (2010) became a steadfast music critic and connoisseur favourite. Some of their latest work is featured on “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” movie soundtrack.
Sixties glam rock with a dash of eastern psychedelia is what Temples are all about. The band caused a serious music scene commotion even before the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Sun Structures in 2014. With Noel Gallagher naming them ‘the best new band in Britain’, Temples have already performed at all the biggest music festivals and played together with The Rolling Stones at London’s Hyde Park.
You Me at Six (YMAS) is currently one of the best British pop rock export bands, with wickedly punkish guitar riffs and excitingly catchy pop choruses. YMAS have conquered the British charts, sold out the Wembley arena and made a gradual transition from hazy pop punk to a more melodic and contemporary rock sound, all while galvanizing audiences at concerts and festivals alike.
One of the hottest emerging Danish indie stars MØ (Karen Marie Ørsted) is often compared to the likes of Grimes, Twin Shadow and Santigold. The hype surrounding the release of her first two tracks led to a record deal with one of the biggest global record labels Sony, who are behind the release of her debut album No Mythologies to Follow (2014).
