Great news travel in pairs.
First of all we are happy to announce that we are adding THE GARLANDS to the lineup to make sure you will wear out those dancing shoes of yours entirely.
Read more about them here.
As this concludes our lineup for the main event (for the second time), we also decided to announce a schedule that shows which bands are planned to play which days and where. As we are not yet set on all the details, it is subject to possible changes.
But as we are pretty sure that the days are correct, we’ve decided to make single-day tickets available too – and that is the other great news!
See you there – in less than a month now…
Besides the events taking place @Huset-KBH we will host a sort of wake-up and get-together in the afternoon Saturday the 17th. This will be held in a café not far from Huset called Din Nye Ven (Danish for Your New Friend), and we’re happy to announce that a few additional bands will play in the café – and hopefully we’ll see many of you there for a coffee, hair-of-the-dog or just a chat in between the bands playing.
We will post more info about what time the event is and such, once we get a little closer, but for know let it be known that you’ll be able to catch a show from both
LONELY TOURIST and LOST SUMMER KITTEN there. Read more about the both of them here and check out Din Nye Ven through the link in the sidebar.
…is a song by this man.
And we’re proud to present the lovely, charming Pelle Carlberg as the last of the eight acts to play at Copenhagen Popfest. Read and listen more about Pelle here.
This concludes the lineup for the main event at Musikcafeen (Huset-KBH), but we’ll soon announce a few more surprises to fill out your weekend, so get your tickets now.
We’re slowly closing up on a full program, as we now present number 6 and 7 in the promised lineup of 8 great bands to you all: We hope you’ll welcome
CLOSE LOBSTERS and THE PROCTORS
just as much as we’ve been excited to announce them to you. Close Lobsters are no strangers to playing popfests, and The Proctors are not forreigners to the terrain either, when you’ll get to see them, as they are also on the poster in Birmingham for the popfest there. They both bring even more janglyness, catchy chorusses and raw indiepop energy to Copenhagen Popfest in their own lovely and unique way; which means that you’ll now for sure need to bring more than one pair of dancing shoes along, simply to avoid wearing one pair completely out. If you’re hungry for more, curious or (hopefully) as thrilled as we are, go on and read / hear all about the both of them here. You won’t be disappointed!
Since we now have 200 likes on Facebook, we though you’d all like it if we dropped some names again. And as the last remaining snow that fell a week ago melted away in Copenhagen today, and a sense of spring is lurking around every corner, something appeared on the surface:
Lost Tapes and ONBC will both be performing at the Popfest, and we really look forward to it, as they are both poppy in their own unique way. More info and link to their sounds are found here. Enjoy!
It’s time for two new announcements about the lineup.
Copenhagen Popfest 2014 have gone across the Sound from the coast of our currently snow covered city to our neighbouring country, Sweden, where the snow lies even thicker to get you the crème de la crème of sounds:
We give you Alpaca Sports and Vit päls, and we hope that you’ll find your dancing shoes, put on a smile and maybe even work on your Swedish vocabulary.
Remember that indiepop is a language that is understood across borders without any difficulties. Read more about the two bands and listen to them here.
More news to come soon.
Since we launched the site yesterday, the hit counter has gone through the roof and the likes are still ticking in on Facebook.
Both things are great and we urge you to keep on sharing. There must be a message to share though, and all this liking has made us so happy that we’re going to reveal the first band for the lineup:
We proudly present to you… THE FELT TIPS.
The lads played in Copenhagen in 2011, and we were all three in the audience singing and dancing along to the tunes from their debut album. We’ve always secretly dreamed of welcoming them back to play their lovely tunes and sing their quirky, yet always clever and toungue-in-cheek’y lyrics here. With their release of a second album last year and us hosting a popfest, time finally caught up on those dreams. Read and listen some more here.
