This year’s Ruisrock will feature a colorful cast of international names representing different musical genres. Latin American music has become a huge global phenomenon, and two of its biggest names will perform at the festival. Singer, rapper, and producer Bad Bunny has become a highly sought-after performer almost overnight and has performed to sold-out crowds across Europe, the United States, and Latin America. The highly-praised, award-winning J Balvin will offer the Ruisrock audience a taste of reggaeton glazed with hip hop.
Before releasing her much-anticipated new album near the end of the year, pop musician Rita Ora treated listeners to an impressive array of singles from the album, receiving hundreds of millions of streaming plays. Producer-musician Diplo and DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike represent the cutting-edge of electronic music, and global pop phenomenon Troye Sivan combines 80s synth pop and fresh contemporary sounds in his dance hits.
In addition to international names, Ruisrock has added a large group of top Finnish artists to its program. They include Alma, JVG, J. Karjalainen, Ellinoora, Gasellit, Olavi Uusivirta, and Chisu, who will be releasing new music this spring. In addition, the festival will feature the solo project Ellips by Elli Haloo from Haloo Helsinki!, which is on hiatus; the trendsetter of Finnish pop, Vesta; and the critics’ choice at Emma Gaala, Ruusut. Festivalgoers can also look forward to the hottest names in Finnish rap, such as Adikia, SOFA, Melo, and Cledos, as well as the trending pop line-ups Maustetytöt and Rosita Luu.
In addition to new artists, Ruisrock has also revealed its daily program. At the same time, the one- and two-day tickets as well as the VIP and Ruisrock+ tickets came on sale. The festival tickets have been sold at record speeds this year.
In addition to the artists announced now, previous announcements include Travis Scott, Brockhampton, Future, Mø, Sigrid, and The 1975. Many more program reveals are yet to come during the winter and spring.
