With the confirmation from KREZIP and BRING ME THE HORIZON, festival organisers have add two beautiful names to the program of the 50th edition of Pinkpop.
The successful alternative rock band BRING ME THE HORIZON, consisting of singer and keyboardists Oliver Sykes and Jordan Fish, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean and drummer Matt Nicholls, released their latest album “amo” last Friday. From metal to electropop and even a touch of EDM, on “amo” the band goes further than on the previous albums and crosses multiple genres with verve. With a Grammy nomination in the pocket for the single ‘MANTRA’ and a sold-out arena tour in America, the band is more than ready for Pinkpop 2019. And that the Pinkpop visitors are ready for the band from Sheffield is evident from the high ranking in the Golden Tip.
KREZIP returns to Landgraaf ten years after the farewell concert of the band for the first and only festival performance. British band BRING ME THE HORIZON‘s career is going like a rocket: the band sold more than two million albums and grew from small shows in the metalcore scene to sold out venues like the Afas Live and the London O2 Arena. Pinkpop 2019 takes place traditionally at Pentecost on Saturday 8th to Monday 10th June at the festival site Megaland in Landgraaf.
Pinkpop has taken a special place in the hearts of KREZIP’s band members. The gig at Pinkpop 2000 led to the breakthrough to the general public and the band also performed several times in the following years. “In 2019 all numbers fall into place. It is ten years since KREZIP stopped and Pinkpop celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
A reunion for our fortieth, how cool is that ?! Let’s fucking celebrate!Jacqueline Govaert
Thanks to their breakthrough performance at Pinkpop 2000, the whole of the Netherlands and Belgium became addicted to the super hit ‘I Would Stay’, which achieved the leading position in the charts in both countries. In the years that followed, the band released several albums and scored several big hits with, among others, ‘Out Of My Bed’, ‘All My Life’ and ‘Sweet Goodbyes’. In 2009 the band decided to stop. Now, exactly 10 years later, they return for their only festival show this summer.
