The Pinkpop line-up is becoming more and more complete and today organisers can again add four new names to the program. For Friday that is none other than ELLIE GOULDING, QUERBEAT and FRENNA. The latter will travel under the name FRENNA DELUXE complete with band to Landgraaf. THE LAST INTERNATIONALE supplements the rock content on Sunday 21 June.
Seven years after her debut on the Pinkpop stage – welcome back to ELLIE GOULDING! The first time is 2013, the year in which the English singer breaks through worldwide. In the following years, hit after hit under their own name, impressive collaborations with Calvin Harris, Kygo, Major Lazer and billions of streams on Spotify followed. Just as fast on the way to the top is FRANCIS EDUSEI AKA FRENNA, who is at Pinkpop together with a complete band under the name FRENNA DELUXE. The album Francis was the best-selling and most streamed album of 2019 in the Netherlands in 2019, leaving behind big names such as Billie Eilish and Ed Sheeran. No wonder then that the rapper from The Hague won the FunX Music Awards for Best singer, Best album and Best collaboration last summer.
To reinforce the joy on the field, Pinkpop invites the thirteen-member party band QUERBEAT this year. The men from Bonn have been traveling through Germany for over ten years with their razor-sharp brass section and percussionists, but are happy to cross the border for Pinkpop 2020. The band is guaranteed to blow you off your socks during their show. Let that be exactly what they have in common with THE LAST INTERNATIONALE. This New York band has been supplying Rock with a capital R since 2008 and does not turn their hand to criticism of society in their strong lyrics. That theme in their songs is not the only thing that links the band with the rock legends of Rage Against The Machine; RATM drummer Brad Wilk has toured with the band for two years.
