Lana Del Rey to play NorthSide
The American star will be joined by Rudimental, St. Vincent, White Lies, and Donkey Roadshow & Special Guests at the Danish festival.
Lana Del Rey
In the summer of 2011, Lana Del Rey became an Internet sensation with the video for "Video Games", which was the first step in a meteoric career that has led to 5 million copies sold of "Born to Die" and two Brit Awards alongside awards from Q Magazine, MTV, and GAFFA.
The ep’s "Paradise" and "Tropico" have shortened the wait on the fascinating singer's second album, while at the same time increasing expectations for the upcoming album release, which was recently given the title "Ultraviolence".
Lana Del Rey is one of the most interesting and intriguing figures on the international music scene right now, and we are extremely proud that she has chosen to give her first Danish festival concert at NorthSide this summer.
Lana Del Rey will plays at NorthSide on Friday the 13th of June.
The English group broke through in 2012 with the single "Feel the Love" where John Newman’s pop vocal on top of drum'n'bass rhythms secured them a number one spot on the UK Singles Chart and critical acclaim for their platinum selling debut album "Home", which has generated seven singles to date.
Rudimental was one of England's most successful acts in 2013, and live they provide a powerful and melodic drum'n'bass experience, which undoubtedly will transform the festival grounds into a giant dance floor.
Annie Clark has had a long career performing with acts such as The Polyphonic Spree, Sufjan Stevens, and Bon Iver along with releasing albums as St. Vincent, both as a solo artist and with David Byrne.
The talented artpop-songwriter has three acclaimed solo releases, which have challenged listeners with twisted beats, sophisticated arrangements, and noisy guitars that acts as an enchanting backdrop for her exceptional voice and beautiful melodies.
St. Vincent will release the album "St. Vincent" later this month and we look forward to hearing the new material at NorthSide.
The trio debuted with a bang in 2009 with "To Lose My Life ...", which both ensured White Lies a gold record in Denmark and hits with the songs "Farewell to the Fairground" and "To Lose My Life".
White Lies quickly became a popular live act in Denmark, and the success continued unabated with the album "Ritual" that gave us songs like "Bigger Than Us" and "Strangers". The album paved the way for the trio's first visit at NorthSide, where they in 2011 closed Saturday night with a fantastic concert, and we really look forward to a reunion with the popular trio at NorthSide.

Pharfar and Fresh-i usually appear together under the name Donkey Sound, but when they are joined by Wafande, Kaka, and Dean Thompson on stage this summer, they’ll perform as Donkey Roadshow. Together, they’re behind some of the largest Danish hits of the last couple of years, and when they hit NorthSide they’ll do so with an exclusive show with secret guests, who’ll help them create a great summer party.
