Pressemeddelelse   •   Nov 05, 2019 10:00 CET

The Swedish world star and pop icon is joined by Franc Moody, Spleen United and Jung.

NorthSide is seriously counting down to next year's festival; first with the announcement of Green Day and Weezer along with Danish star Lukas Graham, just to name a few. Now the festival is ready with yet another strong addition.

At NorthSide 2014, Robyn joined the producer duo Röyksopp on stage for a breathtaking techno-intermezzo. For the first time ever, Robyn will visit NorthSide as a solo artist in 2020, and we guarantee that no one will "be dancing on their own", when the uncrowned queen of the dance floor unleashes 25 years of incredible songwriting and mega hits. 2018 saw the release of the album "Honey", which was led by the hit single "Missing U", and once again Robyn demonstrated the fact that she is one of the most accomplished and influential artists on the electro-pop scene. The world first laid its eyes on Robyn in 1995, when the debut album "Robyn Is Here" was released. Hits like "Do You Know (What It Takes)", ”Do You Really Want Me” and ”Show Me Love” burst onto the world stage and reached several top 10 positions on the prestigious US Billboard chart. In 2005, Robyn got her big, international breakthrough with the song "With Every Heartbeat" from the album "Robyn", which also defined the electronic, synth-heavy sound we have since come to associate her with. In 2010, the "Body Talk” trilogy arrived with massive hits like "Dancing On My Own and "Call Your Girlfriend”.

After a six-year break, the comeback of electro-rock band Spleen United is far more than just a pleasant reunion with old friends. It is also a reunion of the original band members from the debut album “Godspeed Into The Mainstream”. In 2013, following a concert at NorthSide, the group announced that they would go on hiatus "indefinitely". Luckily, the break is over, and we are proud to welcome Bjarke and Gaute Niemann, Kasper Nørlund, Rune Wehner and Jens Kinch back on stage in Aadalen. In 2005, the electro rockers released their break-through and debut album "Godspeed Into The Mainstream", which included a strong list of hit singles: The first single "Heroin Unlimited", which was quickly chosen as ”Single of the Week” on Danish Radio, was followed by "In Peak Fitness Condition" and "Spleen Utd." 2008 saw the release of a second album: "Neanderthal" went straight into first place on the official Danish album chart - and hits like "Suburbia" and "My Tribe" showed that Spleen United phenomenal masters of both texts and tones. In 2012, Spleen United released the musical gem "School of Euphoria", which included the singles "Days of Thunder” and "Misery", featuring Gitte Nielsen - formerly Stallone - on vocals. ”School of Euphoria” was awarded ”Danish Rock Album of the Year” at the Danish Music Awards, as well as ”Danish Electronic Album of the Year” at the Gaffa Awards - and now we are finally ready to say: ”Welcome back” to Spleen United.

The London-based music collective Franc Moody equals a solid collection of funk rhythms and guitar riffs. Their universe is intergalactic and glitter-filled, with clear references to both Daft Punk and Jamiroquai.

- It is with great honor we can present a heavyweight Nordic superstar like Robyn at NorthSide 2020. She encapsulates the sound of the '90s, and at the same time she is more relevant than ever as a power woman on the electronic scene. Robyn unites people across age and music preferences, which is something we expect to be expressed on stage as well as in the audience. At the same time, it's truly joyous to see Spleen United reunited in their original line-up. Remembering them for their impressive and intense live shows, we look forward to reliving it once again at NorthSide, says Festival Director, Brian Nielsen.

NorthSide 2020 will take place in Ådalen, near Aarhus, from June 4-6, 2020. Tickets can be bought at NorthSide.dk.
