Mon 19 Oct, 20:00; Forum; 370kr
The band that we all know due to the hit single ‘Radioactive’ are making a long overdue return to promote their head-banging second album, Smoke + Mirrors.
It has been two long years since their last concert on Danish soil – 2013 saw them play at Store Vega, the Northside Festival and Falconer Salen – and now they’re back with some thrilling new tunes, of which ‘Warriors’ is a standout.
They left the Danish public wanting more, much more, so expect Imagine Dragons to take the stage by storm with their incredible take on rock music. (LAB)

An unprecedented number of Danish musicians have been breaking through in the international charts this summer and Barbara Moleko isn’t hanging around either!
This year she’s already had two smash hits: ‘Gør Mig Lykkelig’ and ‘Helt Min Egen’, on which she duets with rapper LOC.
Once heard, it’s difficult to stop replaying the tunes in your head, even if you barely know how to pronounce them, because they are that great and catchy!
Originally from Mozambique, she moved to Denmark aged 12, but she hasn’t lost her African groove or soul.(EN)

Mixing synthpop and R&B beats, Joey Moe’s infectious hooks make him one to watch on the Danish scene. You might know him from ‘Yo-yo’, a hit in Denmark before being re-released in English to similar acclaim. This concert has been moved from October 10. (JM)
