Ruisrock announces the first artists for 2021, including Martin Garrix, Major Lazer and The Ark

Ruisrock will take place 9.–11.7.2021 in Ruissalo, Turku. All festival ticket types are currently available.

In the summer of 2021, producer sensation Martin Garrix (NL), known for drawing huge audiences to the world’s largest festival stages, will arrive to Ruisrock. An award-winning and list-topping artist, he is in his element with both uplifting dance tracks and melodic pop songs. Garrix has released several huge hits featuring artists such as Dua Lipa, Khalid and Troye Sivan.

Super trio Major Lazer (US) have held their position among the most popular artists in the world for the past decade. Formed by Diplo, Walshy Firen and Ape Drums, the trio creates dance music based on a combination of reggae, dancehall and house and will be taking the festival’s atmosphere through the roof on Friday. American artist blackbear, in turn, will be performing at Ruisrock on Sunday. His singles have been streamed and viewed hundreds of millions of times worldwide, and some of his best-known tracks include huge hits such as hot girl bummer and do re mi.

The Scandinavian countries will also be well represented at the festival: DJ producer Alan Walker (NO), pop artist Zara Larsson (SE) and the iconic The Ark (SE) will be arriving to Ruissalo. Despite his young age, Alan Walker, one of the most internationally sought-after artists in his genre and a very popular headliner, has already left his mark on the history of popular music with his soaring streaming numbers. Another much-awaited performer is The Ark, arguably one of the greatest Swedish bands of the 21st century. When they take the Ruisrock stage on Sunday, they will be playing their only Finnish gig in the summer of 2021. Zara Larsson, who has conquered the people’s hearts with her hits Lush Life and Never Forget You, among others, is one of Sweden’s top contemporary artists.

Some of the most anticipated Finnish artist additions include Antti Tuisku, known for his spectacular live performances, the legendary Finnish rock band Tehosekoitin, pop music pioneer Kaija Koo, and the endlessly talented and versatile Vesala. Numerous other great artists, such as Cledos, Erin, Gasellit, Gettomasa, Jesse Markin, Luukas Oja, Maustetytöt, Ruusut, Ursus Factory and Yeboyah will also be joining the line-up.

The artists’ performance dates have been published on the festival’s website, and all ticket types are for sale at Tiketti. Tickets to Ruisrock 2020, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus situation, will be accepted at Ruisrock 2021 without having to be replaced. More artist announcements will be coming up later on!
