das northside festival 2016
Since NorthSide in October announced that Beck would visit this year's festival such diverse headliners as Iggy Pop, Duran Duran, Beach House, Jamie xx, Sigur Rós, Deftones, and The Chemical Brothers have joined the American virtuoso. A total of 27 stunning Danish and international acts in a variety of genres have been presented in the last four months, and today they’re joined by ten more.
The new additions are Danish Alex Vargas, the two British guitar bands Blossoms and Coasts, Ed Sheeran protégé Jamie Lawson, rap phenomenon Marvelous Mosell, the Danish soul-success Phlake, solo project of Tool-frontman Maynard James Keenan Puscifer, Britain's next soul star Samm Henshaw, hit makers Scarlet Pleasure, and the reunited Wolf Parade.
Of the six international acts Blossoms, Coasts, Samm Henshaw, and Puscifer have never played in Denmark before, and although Puscifer has been around since 2007, this is actually the first time that the eccentric Maynard James Keenan of Tool will take his solo project to Europe.
Jamie Lawson played a sold out concert at Ideal Bar in Copenhagen last year, but has since earned his way to a much larger stage, and after a five-year break Canadian indie-darlings Wolf Parade are finally back together and are now ready to write new material and go on tour.
