One week to Ruisrock: Headie One and Sini Sabotage complete the artist lineup

British rapper Headie One and Sini Sabotage seal the artist lineup for Ruisrock Festival, to be held one week from now. More than 120 artists are set to perform in Ruissalo in Turku over the weekend.

Confirmed for the festival, Headie One is a British rapper known for his signature bouncy flow and acute wordplay, but also as the first artist from the UK drill rap genre to top the UK charts. Having broken all sorts of boundaries since the beginning of his career, the rapper has achieved international success with his mega hits Ain’t It Different and Only You Freestyle, and the single Rivals, released this spring, is propelling him to new heights. Known for his amazing stage presence, the artist will take the stage at Ruisrock on Sunday.

Also set to perform at Ruisrock is Sini Sabotage who has embarked on a new phase in her career. One of the most iconic female soloists in Finnish rap, the artist entered the scene with a bang with her groundbreaking song Levikset Repee (feat. VilleGalle) in 2013. The hit song has amassed millions of streams and now, a decade since its release, Sabotage will be performing a special act for her listeners at Ruisrock on Friday.

I can’t wait to see Ruissalo in one week full of joy and happiness once again for a whole weekend,” says Ruisrock Promoter Mikko Niemelä.
