Ruisrock will feature top artists from Britain as Ellie Goulding and Marina will come to Turku in July. One of the biggest pop stars in her home country, Goulding will take the Ruisrock stage on the festival Friday. She released eagerly anticipated new music last fall in the form of the single Close to Me, created in collaboration with Diplo who will also be performing at Ruisrock. Known for her one-of-a-kind voice, the artist will be releasing a new album this year, which has already been hyped by the media.
Award-winning artist Marina with platinum record sales draws her most fascinating inspiration from both underground and mainstream music, resulting in songs ranging from melancholic ballads to glam pop. Previously known as Marina and the Diamonds, the artist released new music early this year, and the single Orange Trees, heralding her fourth album, come out last week.
Another much-wanted artist now confirmed to perform at the festival is Lykke Li. During her ten-year career, she has evolved into a pop icon and one of the most played artists in her native Sweden. She has succeeded in renewing herself and surprising both critics and the audience release after release.
Having established a darkly ominous signature sound, JPEGMAFIA from the United States will now be seen in Finland for the first time. The album Veteran, released last year to much acclaim, made him one of the most interesting names in experimental rap.
New Finnish additions to the Ruisrock program include ABREU, Reino Nordin, Ida Paul & Kalle Lindroth, The Holy, Vilma Alina, and one of the most revered producers in Finland Jori Sjöroos. DJ-producer duo STEREO’s electronic music will raise the energy levels at Ruisrock on Saturday, and unfailing melodies and rich live music come together with insightful, razor-sharp lyrics in the live show of Pyhimys & Saimaa. The top trending Finnish rap artists at the festival are Elastinen, Gettomasa, Pikku G, and Katakombi, with a line-up formed by Eevil Stöö x KoksuKoo, DJ Kridlokk, HENRIK!, LIFE, and MNTTT.
In addition to the newly confirmed artists, Ruisrock will include live performances by Travis Scott, Brockhampton, Diplo, Rita Ora, The 1975, and Mø, among others. More program reveals and other festival news will be published later on this spring.
