SPOT FESTIVAL is a very special music event that takes place in Danish city of Aarhus at the beginning of May (this year’s edition 3-4th of May 2013). Every year most amazing Danish bands, mostly these upcoming, but also the well-recognizable ones – come to play and participate in a music celebration.
Good Because Danish had a great pleasure of going to SPOT Festival last year and we’re more than happy to be able to come back to Aarhus this year as well. 2013 edition line-up is crazy and filled with some REALLY great names. It’s super hard to choose the most interesting acts. We look forward to many (MANY) concerts and we’d have to clone ourselves to be able to go to every one of these which we’d like to see. However, we decided to at least try to choose these shows and bands that we think you shouldn’t miss at this year SPOT Festival.
One secret recipe for the success the band around front man Kasper Kaae already could achieve in and around Denmark must be their talent to create music that simply makes you feel at ease. Their second album “Fractures” that got released in Denmark in August 2012 also hit the markets in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands earlier this year. After playing several concerts in those countries, CODY is once again part of SPOT’s line-up – a promising one, a must-see.
DEN FJERDE VÆG
A real Danish-speaking or rather -singing gem. Due to their unique charm and precious melodies the singer-songwriter-collective Den Fjerde Væg is able to catch the listeners’ attention and carry them away beyond any possibly existing lingual “borders” – we are really looking forward to get caught and carried away ourselves!
A dear and honest recommendation: performances of songwriter talent Jasper Madsen’s under his alias Echo Me are valuable and beautiful experiences one simply shouldn’t miss out on. The project’s live cast can be incarnated by different formations, giving every concert a very unique character – the gig at SPOT will surely be no exception.
Better remember that name! All signs are pointing to a great year for Kadie Elder, the electro pop project around folk musician Anders Rask. They just recently got confirmed a spot for well-known Roskilde Festival, so SPOT might be one of the last chances to experience their live performance before the world gets to know about them – we can’t wait to catch ’em in Aarhus!
Lovely Penny Police will serve her delicate, wonderful songs to the Aarhus audience this year, which is a great news for those of you who likes singer-songwriter style, with poetic melodies and special female touch.
This young electronic duo-act won Good Because Danish hearts with their song “Out Of Existance”. Together with other SPOT Festival act – MO (with whom they made a song “Let The Youth Go Mad”) – Broke represent the power of youth and the riot of youth. Crooked beats, rough sound and madness hidden in their music is disturbing and atrracting at the same time. We’re sure it will be hell of a party during their performance!
Psychodelic garage music is doing good in Denmark. You can say so, when you listen to The Wands. With their twisted, dreamy-rough sound they make you dive in the layers of their compositions. We’re curious how their song “Hello I Know The Blow You Grow Is Magic” will sound live.
The only thing you can find about this Cancer is an info that it’s a collaboration between Nikolaj Vonsild (When Saints Go Machine) and Kristian Finne Kristensen (Chorus Grant). How do they sound like? What do they play? It’s a mystery. We’re gonna find the answers to these questions at SPOT Festival 2013.
