Northside Festival announces all-star lineup

Acts include New York hip hop group Wu-Tang-Clan and all-time festival favourite The Black Keys

Thousands of young music lovers woke to joyous news this morning as Aarhus’s Northside Festival released its five-star line-up.

This year, the festival will take place from June 12-14 with a program that includes big name acts such as Alt-J, Sam Smith, the Black Keys and Wu-Tang-Clan.

Other headlining acts include festival veteran Grace Jones and New York band Antony and the Johnsons, who are set to perform alongside the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.

“We have not been afraid to take a detour to blues, soul, electroswing or any other genre for that matter,” explained John Fogde, the spokesman for Northside.

Tickets for the Friday and Saturday events are already sold out, with Sunday selling fast.

Last year, tickets sold out completely by early May, and organisers warn this could very well happen again.

Tickets for the Sunday events are available at northside.dk/billetter.
