Additions to Ruisrock from Jamaica, The United States, and Sweden
Sean Paul, Lil Uzi Vert, and Jens Lekman complement Ruisrock’s international line-up.
Grammy-awarded rapper, dancehall and reggae artist Sean Paul will perform at Ruisrock this summer. The Jamaican artist’s best-known hits are, for example, No Lie, Gimme the Light, Get Busy, Temperature, and We Be Burning. Sean Paul is also known for his collaborations with Beyoncé, Rihanna, Sia, and Clean Bandit.
Additionally, hot American hip hop artist Lil Uzi Vert will perform at Ruisrock. Only 22-year-old artist attracted attention with his debut single Money Longer. Lil Uzi Vert has collaborated for example with the contemporary US rapper Migos, and their joint single Bad and Boujee topped the BiIlboard Hot 100 Chart.
From Gothenburg to Turku hails Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman, who has been compared to Jonathan Richman and Belle & Sebastian. Reinforcing Ruisrock’s indiepop line-up, Lekman released a new success album in January after a five-year break, and the single What’s That Perfume That You Wear satisfied the fans. Ruisrock’s Finnish line-up is complemented by CMX, Kasmir, Litku Klemetti, Teflon Brothers, and Töölön Ketterä.
