This week, six acts have already been announced for the new tent stage at Tinderbox alongside five acts for Magicbox. But now it's time to add four acts, who will all play the two biggest stages at the festival this summer.

Bastille are in the charts right now with the single "World Gone Mad", released only one year after the release of their album "Wild World", which features the hits "Good Grief" and "Send Them Off!". Unsurprisingly, the album went to number one in their home country just like their debut album "Bad Blood" did in 2013. So, of course there are great expectations for the third album, which is expected to drop later this year. So feel free to have high hopes for the upcoming concert as well, where the charismatic front man Dan Smith will surely lead in everyone in a massive singalong on hits like "Pompeii" and "Off the Night".

Craig David’s first hits were with The Artful Dodger and then later as a solo artist he created classics like "Fill Me In", "7 Days", and most recently with "I Know You", which was written and recorded with Bastille. A few years ago, however, he expanded his repertoire with the party concept Craig David Presents TS5, which works as a club concept in Miami featuring Craig David as both DJ and singer. Craig David brought the concept with him to a sold out show in Copenhagen in 2016, and when it returns to Denmark, it will be fully focused on megahits and summer vibes.

Editors introduced themselves with a bang with the album "The Back Room". The single "Munich" was P3's Inevitable Track, and "Blood", "Bullets", and "All Sparks" ensured sales in the millions of the album. Thus, Editors had established themselves, and then they took the top spot on the British album chart and a platinum album on the release date with the album "An End Has A Start", and songs like as "Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors" and "An End Has A Start" became global hits. Since then, the band has scored another first place with the album "In This Light and On This Evening" and repeatedly taken their dark indie rock around the world. They will release a new album in 2018, so it will be both possible to hear brand new songs and also have a great reunion with the biggest hits.

Scarlet Pleasure delivers strong melodies in a unique mix of groovy 80s pop and sexy 90s R'n'B. In front, Emil Goll delivers captivating vocals and Nordic cool radiance and behind him is the rhythm group featuring Joachim Dencker (drums) and Alexander Malone (bass), who deliver a solid foundation for the bright vocal. The trio’s songs are heading for 55 million streams on Spotify alone, and from "Windy" and "The Strip" over "Heat" and "Casual" to "Deja Vu" and "Limbo", Scarlet Pleasure has also become a very popular act on the Danish radio waves. But they have also made an impact on the Danish stages, where they have proven time and again that their catchy pop can kick-start any party. This could be experienced at Tinderbox in 2016, and we look forward to experiencing again this year.
