Danish artist IDK IDA is a Reykjavik based composer and producer who has her roots planted in the Icelandic underground scene. The unique sound of her Industrial Electronica was already evident on the debut release ‘THE BUG’ from 2017 but has become even more uncompromising on three-piece EP ‘Muscle Memory’ due later this year. Her personal style and emotional density creates a deep connection with the audience and has taken her on tour around europe. Deep bass, complex beats and a web of field recordings create an atmosphere that wraps itself around her expressive voice when she paces the stage with great intensity. The listener is invited into a cutting-edge world full of desperation, artistic vision and exiting sound design. Her sense of DIY and punk mentality are evident in projects and collaborations such as co-founding the Weird Kids collective, the Háskar Festival and the organisation #KIM that focuses on creating an equal arts- and music industry. Her passion for conveying emotions, combining art forms and bringing people together make her a very exciting artist to follow.
ZAAR is the solo-project of Sara Flindt, loopartist from Aarhus, Denmark. Sometimes as a trio but in this setting as a solo-artist, she creates a majestic and experimental sound that you wouldn’t believe is maneuvered by a single person. ZAAR’s versatile universe is build layer by layer from voice, drum-machine, samples and looper all run through a pedalboard. Her unique style and personal songs invite the crowd into a beautiful and vulnerable experience of great intensity.
The Post Performance Blues Band
The Post Performance Blues Band is blue, it's a bloody mary, it's an anti-climax, it's a new beginning without an end.
The PPBB was formed in Reykjavík in late 2016. They have become renowned for their ceremonial performances, raw glamour and blues post-blue.
PPBB is six women with excellent spatial awareness, one bass guitar, unique vocals and lyrics deep from the dysfunctional psyche.
