Pressemeddelelse   •   Jan 10, 2017 12:31 CET

One of the biggest rock bands in the world, The Killers, will headline this year’s Tinderbox. Travis Scott, Jacob Dinesen and Gogol Bordello have also been announced to play Tinderbox festival this summer. 

With more than 22 million in album sales and several worldwide hits, Las Vegas-natives The Killers are one of this century’s biggest rock bands and we are delighted to announce that they will play at this summer’s festival. 

In fact it is quite a scoop since The Killers have been on hiatus since 2012 due to frontman Brandon Flowers’ focus on his solo projects. Right now the American rockers are hard at work on their next studio album, which means that when The Killers play their first Danish show in eight years, they will be bringing brand new material. 

“It’s a scoop that we’re able to announce The Killers for Tinderbox. Not only is the band one of the biggest rock acts over the course of the last two decades, they are also the perfect fit for the line-up that we want for Tinderbox. Besides the fact that it’s a comeback for the band, we are also delighted that they will play their first Danish show in eight years at Tinderbox. I’m positive that our audience has a mind-blowing experience in store,” says Tinderbox spokesperson, Morten Hopballe. 

Alongside The Killers, audiences can look forward to the American rapper Travis Scott, the Danish singer-songwriter Jacob Dinesen and the unique Balkan-rock group Gogol Bordello. 

Travis Scott is one of the hottest hip hop acts working right now. His 2015 album, “Rodeo” gave him his big break, with notable appearances from, amongst others, Kanye West, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber. His latest album, “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight” has guest spots from Kendrick Lamar, André 3000, James Blake, Kid Cudi and once again The Weeknd. This year’s Tinderbox show will be the rapper’s very first in Denmark. 

Jacob Dinesen on the other hand is no stranger to Danish shows, in fact his 28-show national tour is already completely sold out. It is a great pleasure to be able to add the immensely popular singer-songwriter to the Tinderbox line-up. 

The last act is sure to bring the Balkan party to Odense with their gypsy punk. Gogol Bordello are especially known for their energetic and crazy live shows where their almost anarchistic showmanship is sure to get everyone at Tinderbox moving. 

New stage for Tinderbox 2017 

The Killers, Travis Scott, Jacob Dinesen, Gogol Bordello and the other 17 acts announced so far is not all the audience at Tinderbox 2017 have to look forward to; a new stage will be added for this year’s festival. 

“The fourth Tinderbox stage will be a venue for new and exciting Danish and international acts that we want to share with the Tinderbox audience. We can’t wait to announce the acts who are going to play this stage,” says Morten Hopballe.
