The line-up for NorthSide 2019 is really beginning to take shape, and the latest festival additions showcase the range of artistic talent set to grace Aarhus this year.
Atlanta has one of the strongest music scenes in the world, and perhaps the biggest success story in recent times is the hip-hop trio MIGOS. TAKEOFF, QUAVO, and OFFSET have been behind some oft the biggest releases since their breakthrough single ‘Versace’, garnering attention far beyond the realms of hip-hop. Their fourth album ‘Culture III’ is already among 2019’s most hyped releases, and when Migos hit Aarhus this summer, it will not only be the trio’s first visit to a Danish festival, but potentially also the rowdiest show the venue has ever seen.
Multi-instrumentalist and talented producer KEVIN PARKER will be lighting up Aarhus with his woozy psychedelia and kaleidoscopic visuals. The live outfit is no less impressive, so it came as no surprise when TAME IMPALA were chosen to headline Coachella festival in 2019. But there’s no reason to go to California this year; Tame Impala has been high on the wish list among many NorthSide guests, and now they will finally get to see them in Denmark this summer.
KAYTRANADA has only one album in his discography, but ‘99.9%’ was such a strong release that the man behind the moniker, LOUIS KEVIN CELESTIN, was able to pick up both a Polaris Music Prize and a Juno Award for his debut album. The Canadian producer collaborated with artists such as Craig David, Anderson.Paak, Syd, and Little Dragon, blending his electronic elements with funk, soul, and hip-hop.
NorthSide 2019 full line-up: ALICE IN CHAINS, BON IVER, CAUTIOUS CLAY, FOALS, FIRST AID KIT, GEORGIA, GNAGS, JADA, JONAH BLACKSMITH FILM CONCERT, KAYTRANADA, KHALID, KURT VILE & THE VIOLATORS, L.O.C., LYDMOR, MAJOR LAZER, MIGOS, THE MINDS OF 99, PETER SOMMER & TIGGERNE, THE STREETS, SUSPEKT, TAME IMPALA, and TOVE LO.
