Ruisrock lineup complete!
Brand new stage Sateenkaari introduced this summer
Ruisrock has finalized this summer’s lineup. Final international addition to the extremely current and high-quality set of performers is German pop-folk duo Milky Chance. The duo’s members are singer Clemens Rehbeinand DJ Philipp Dausch. The group rose into international fame with their hit Stolen Dance.
Finnish lineup is completed by eight artists. New acts are Finnish singer-songwriter Aurora, energetic garage rock duo Ursus Factory, the most followed act of Finnish rap Gettomasa, and representing the new generation of Finnish guitar pop Pimeys. PME Record’s latest addition Bizi joins previously released Tippa T on stage. The duo is about to release a joint album Trappist-1.
Festival days start on a rainbow
Another addition for the summer is the stage Sateenkaari. “Our new stage is hemisphere-shaped, rounded dome stage, which we aptly named Sateenkaari, rainbow. The variety of performances on the stage reflects the variety and diversity of Ruisrock, with new acts, classics, guitar pop, and DJ sets. Sateenkaari stage is more than just a stage for performing, as Sun Effects’ designer Matti Jykylä has conjured the stage setup into a comprehensive work of art, which will definitely be one of the wow things of next summer”, says Ruisrock’s promoter Mikko Niemelä.
Festival starts every day on the Sateenkaari stage as gates open. On Friday one of Finland’s youngest promising DJs Jeremy Folderol together with Alex Mattson perform. Saturday starts with previously announced DJ duo D.R.E.A.M. Sunday opens with DJ duo Aksim ja Suklaa, formed by Aksim, who leapt into a solo career from the group Kemmuru, and Seksikäs-Suklaa, who is one of Finland’s most followed online comedians. Lineup also includes DJ sets starred by guests, like grime-oriented party with Töölön Ketterä & Ystävät, and super popular Tavastian Lauantaidisko & Ystävät.
Unfortunately, British artist Anne-Marie has had to cancel her performance at Ruisrock.
Next Ruisrock will announce the best of the festival’s program for art and experiences, and reveal what food and drink will be enjoyed at Ruisrock this summer.
