The house DJ also recently played Times Square and Madison Square Garden with veteran producers Skrillex and Four Tet. Catch him on various festival stages in 2023 including: Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Brazil in March 2023 and Primavera Sound in June 2023 as well as many others across South America in early 2023.
For the first time in two decades, Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate were touring again in 2022. Despite being formed in 1981 and disbanded in 1985 due to musical taste differences, the band has been touring in Europe and in the US to rave reviews ever since concerts started to ramp up again in 2022. The band quickly became a Real Live Certified artist on LiveRate.
Danish-born, Brooklyn-based indie singer-songwriter Eee Gee is mixing pop, soul, and folk together with astonishing results. With critically acclaimed performances in Denmark in the summer of 2022 and again in early January 2023, fans can watch her subtle and honest show at Roskilde Festival in June 2023.
