The first major names for the music poster for # TB20 are clear, and they are strongly joined by ZARA LARSSON, THE PEOPLE’S CLUB, JONAH BLACKSMITH and the Magicbox names OLIVER HELDENS, NONSENS and TOBY GREEN.
After a fantastic party for Tinderbox 2019, where world-class music, formidable atmosphere and happy guests joined a higher unit, we can now look forward to 2020. Early Bird tickets have long since sold out, official ticket sales were launched on 22nd. October, and now we’re ready with the first set of names for the poster.
Album Topical POST MALONE has become one of the greatest and most played artists of our time in less than half a decade, and now we have the great honor to welcome him to Tinderbox 2020. All four tracks from the mega star’s third studio album “Hollywood’s Bleeding” are currently on the Danish Spotify Top 50, and the variation from the rocky “Take What You Want” in collaboration with Travis Scott and Ozzy Osbourne to popped “Circles” is the epitome of the diversity and variety that makes POST MALONE impossible to categorise and easy to love.
It’s only four years since the world first became acquainted with the then 20-year-old Texans when the first single “White Iverson” from the debut album “Stoney” landed. In 2017, the mega hit “Rockstar” from the album “Beerbongs & Bentley” was completely unavoidable all over the world, and later that year POST MALONE, as the first ever, had eight Top 20 singles in the Billboards Top 100 – POST MALONE plays Thursday, June 25 on Tinderbox.
In September they released the single “Lie”, and now the boys in LUKAS GRAHAM announce ready to take Tinderbox in 2020. Since the debut, “Ordinary Things” which landed in 2011, the Danish world success has taken the international stage at a heart-blowing pace. It all culminated in a massive American breakthrough with “7 Years”, which today has generated more than a billion streams on Spotify. The musical universe, with singer Lukas Forchhammer’s own words, is “ghetto pop with a touch of soul”, which clearly shines through on tracks like “Mama Said”, “Love Someone” and “Drunk in the Morning”. The band’s international debut album went Top 10 in 11 countries and is now certified with a full 10 x Platinum – LUKAS GRAHAM plays Saturday, June 27 at Tinderbox.
It’s a true rock icon when LENNY KRAVITZ steps on stage in Tusindårsskoven LENNY KRAVITZ is the man behind mega hits such as “Fly Away”, “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” And “It Ain’t Over ‘To Over Over”. Kravitz released his first studio album “Let Love Rule” in 1989, and since then it has become 11 albums, the most recent release being “Raise Vibration” from 2018. The sound is classic rock, but with threads for reggae, soul, pop and one sea of other genres, and there is no doubt that LENNY KRAVITZ is in the absolute top class of today’s rock stars – LENNY KRAVITZ plays Saturday, June 27 at Tinderbox.
The last time ZARA LARSSON made her way past the Tusindårsskoven was in 2019, when she warmed up for herself Ed Sheeran, and now we again have the pleasure of welcoming the just 20-year-old Swedish pop star when she visits Tinderbox. With mega hits like “Uncover” and “Lush Life”, Zara Larsson is already an established world star. In 2013 she released her first EP, “Introducing”, and just “Uncover” went all the way to the top in both Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In 2018, Larsson featured on the Clean Bandit hit “Symphony”, and the same year the long-awaited first single “Ruin My Life” was released from the unreleased third album. The latest play is the single “All The Time” from July 2019 – ZARA LARSSON plays Saturday, June 27 at Tinderbox.
Since the debut album “New Times” from 2013, we have come to know FOLKEKLUBBEN as a trinity with something at heart and a formidable ability to captivate a live audience. The band delivers amazing tunes and lyrics with craziness and poetic excess, and at the same time they manage to hit us with much more than music. The folk club got its breakthrough with the single “Grease Rob” from 2013 and in 2018 landed the band’s fourth album with hits such as “But Not Yet A Winter” and “Black Tulip” – FOLKEKLUBBEN plays on Friday, June 26 at Tinderbox.
The audience can look forward to the sound of new music when Danish JONAH BLACKSMITH visits Tinderbox 2020. The experienced and critically acclaimed live band is just now in the studio to record their fourth album, and the audience can expect yet another solid example of how art and music can walk hand in hand. JONAH BLACKSMITH is based on the down-to-earth themes, and it is clearly the joy of both the music and the life that binds the seven-man strong ensemble together – JONAH BLACKSMITH plays Tinderbox on Friday, June 26.
The first step towards another crazy DJ party on Magicbox is the release of the three formidable acts OLIVER HELDENS, NONSENS and TOBY GREEN. You can’t say NONSENS without saying “Unz Unz”, and the track, released with Specktors, has become one of the absolute biggest country plagues in 2019. Dutch artist OLIVER HELDENS and his megahit “Gecko (Overdrive)” were discovered by themselves Tiësto and Heldens delivered a mind-blowing performance at the electronic festival Tomorrowland this year. 20-year-old Danish DJ comet TOBY GREEN also visits Magicbox. In 2019, Green made special mention of “Work It”, who smoked on set lists with, among others, Tiësto, Nicky Romero and Afrojack and was in the playoffs to become the festival track of the year 2019. We look forward to welcoming the DJ stars by 2020.
Being able to present a world star like POST MALONE shows how far Tinderbox has come in its short lifetime. In addition to a strong music program, we look forward to presenting an updated camping area, several new green initiatives and not least new exciting initiatives and oasis in Tusindårsskoven.
Tinderbox 2020 takes place in Tusindårsskoven in Odense, 25-27. June 2020.
