Ruisrock is looking forward to next years 50th anniversary celebration, which will take place from the 5th to 7th July 2019 in Ruissalo, Turku.
Ruisrock will celebrate next year’s gigs with much sought after international and domestic artists, starting with TRAVIS SCOTT, a multi-platinum artist producer, who arrives in Ruissalo with a huge popularity and third studio album, ASTROWORLD.
Among the most interesting artists of this moment is the Danish singer MØ, whose original sound is echoed by electronic bands and pop hooks.
Ruisrock festival also features rapper and songwriter FUTURE, whose albums, platinum awards, and numerous credits to the hits of different artists have established him as one of the key players in the industry. Hip-Hop set up BROCKHAMPTON has created a new definition for the boy band. The band that mixes traditional rapids and alternative gaps is known not only for strong visual outbreaks but also for lyrics that break the boundaries.
One of the most anticipated bands at the festival is the British band THE 1975, which combines electronic influences and great melodies in music. The album released in November, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, is the first half of a planned two-part plan, the second of which is due next year.
More Nordic reinforcements are added to the Ruisrock line up with SIGRID, the musician who has been sold out of the world around the world and won the BBC’s prestigious Sound of 2018 vote, featuring the world’s most promising emerging artists.
Also welcomed today are Finnish favourites including ANNA PUU, APULANTA, PAULIINA KOKKONEN, SANNI, VESALA, VILLE VALO & AGENTS, YOUNGHEARTED, the great Finnish punk rocker, PÄÄ KII and rap spectacle D.R.E.A.M.G.I.R.L.S., star of a group of topical Finnish artists from SOFA to Yeboyah.
Preparations for the next summer’s jubilee have been really inspiring! We are going to take our visitors to a fabulous trip to another world that is only possible to experience in Ruisrock. We look strongly into the future, which is reflected in everything we do. The performers are the most popular and top performers of this moment, new promises and timeless classics, which together form a unique Ruisrock experience – Ruisrock’s promoter Mikko Niemelä.
