NorthSide finally gets Frank Ocean
The NorthSide festival, which annually takes place in Denmark’s second largest city Aarhus, has also announced new names for its 2017 edition.

The line-up currently includes American R’n’B star Frank Ocean, Danish rocker Thomas Helmig, British indie pop band Bastille, Swedish soul-pop singer Veronica Maggio and the legendary Radiohead.

He is set to perform on the opening night of the festival, which takes place from June 9-11. Partout tickets cost 1,545 kroner.
