The Danish Grammy-winning rock boys from Copenhagen was formed back at the boarding school in 1991. The name they got from Led Zeppelin’s old song of the same name!
Recently, the band released ‘Trespassers’ in 2010, which debuted at number # 1 on the charts and received in June 2010 platinum with 30,000 copies sold.
The young Fallulah broke through in 2011 with the single ‘Out of It’, which simultaneously was chosen as the theme song for the national television series ‘Lykke’. She moves around in the pop world, but has added her own twist in the form of indie rock and Balkan beats. She has previously appeared at the Roskilde Festival and has simultaneously been appointed Soundvenue Selected!
It is not more than one month ago that MØ - with the real name Karen Marie Ørsted - released her first official video for the first single ‘Glass’. She has previously performed at the festival CMJ in New York and created in this context some international attention. With the track ‘Pilgrim’ she was both mentioned by English The Guardian and American Pitchfork. On January 31, 2013, she also played at Studenterhus Aarhus! We look forward again to see Karen in action!
Kristina is not the type who choose the music - it chooses her and she jumps with. Her first release of 2012 ‘For Now’ is a nice blend of electro-pop songs, especially her strong vocals binds the songs together. Definitely an interesting booking from Northside!
Floor Is Made Of Lava:
The Danish rock band is originally from Esbjerg way out on the west coast - and was formed in 2006. They have worked with prominent names such as Troels Abrahamsen which produced their debut album. The band is inspired by bands such as The Who, The Stooges, Bruce Springsteen and Oasis!
The boys from the Scottish indie rock band Frigtened Rabbit guests also Aarhus! Originally formed in Selkirk. Recently they released ‘Pedestrian Verse’ which differed from the other albums, as it was written while they were on tour. If you like indie rock, you will surely love the new initiative from the Scottish boys.

The William Blakes:
Issued in 2008 their critically acclaimed debut album. Yesterday the band released “An Age Of Wolves” which unfortunately only received mediocre reviews yet. However, the band is known to be fantastic on stage, and should therefore also be seen on the North Side!
The British singer-songwriter released his debut EP in 2012 and we are still waiting on his debut album, scheduled for release in April! Certainly an exciting booking for the festival!
The latest publish by the Danish national treasure Peter Sommer was his 2013 album ‘Alt Forladt’. In addition, he is also known as one part of the duo ‘De Eneste To’ with Simon Kvamm! The single “Hvor Løber Vi” was on January 7th, 2013, elected to the P3’s Uungåelige. If you’re into deep lyrics and great guitar playing, you should definitely see Peter Sommer. It must be said that he also guests Train, Saturday March 7th!
