Over the past few years, the sounds of Los Angeles based producer ChrisB. have taken the underground electronic music scene by storm. Armed with a voracious appetite for exploring new sounds, ChrisB.'s passion for songwriting led him to playing guitar in bands throughout his formative years, but it wasn't until being exposed to the cutting-edge sounds of electronic music that he realized his true creative calling.

This round of announcements for the Danish festival includes two major indie acts plus DE ENESTE TO and rising stars YEARS & YEARS.

The androgynous frontman of PLACEBO, Brian Molko, burst onto the English music scene in the mid-90s wearing jet black hair and bright red lipstick armed with the songs “Teenage Angst” and “Nancy Boy” and guitar riffs that cut through radio waves with the force of a chainsaw.

There are not many bands that have revolutionized an entire genre, but the collective known as the WU-TANG CLAN may have left the biggest footprint on the hip crowd ever.

The legendary New York-based collective the Wu-Tang Clan has since the mid 90s dominated the hip hop scene, both as a group and as solo artists. Original members Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, GZA, Masta Killa, Method Man, Ol' Dirty B*stard, Raekwon, RZA and U-God revolutionised the genre with their hardcore hip hop and created its own mythical world. Today, the constellation is slightly different but the fact remains the Wu-Tang Clan together on stage is a magical event you simply have to experience.
