SANNI, Silvana Imam, Tove Styrke, and Nelli Matula to Perform at Ruisrock
The program of the Ruisrock Festival features strong, unique music artists. The festival will be held in Turku from 6–8 July, 2018.
Ruisrock has confirmed new music artists who will perform at the festival this summer. One of the new reinforcements is the inimitable pop musician SANNI who will release new music next month. She is one of the most popular artists in Finland and composes and writes her songs herself. In addition to her own megahits, she has dominated the top lists with her songs from the “Vain elämää” TV show.
The international artist lineup is complemented by the versatile rap musician Silvana Imam (SE) with her unparalleled sound. She has attracted the attention of the global music scene with her genre-breaking style and her lyrics tackling social issues. Putting on unconventional live shows, the artist does not hesitate to take a stand and is one of the most followed opinion leaders in her home country.
Sweden is strongly represented at the festival as the pop star Tove Styrke is also arriving to Ruissalo. Styrke has established her fame as a pop singer and will be touring the United States together with Lorde before the summer and the release of her third album.
In addition to SANNI, the Finnish lineup includes the R’n’B-inspired Nelli Matula, an up-and-coming artist whose singles have passed gold limits in Spotify. The singer-songwriter has worked together with Robin and Profeetat, among others.
“This summer’s Ruisrock is gradually coming together, and the unique, amazing artists that have now been revealed further reinforce the strong lineup. There are many more acts to be announced later on in the spring, and the festival’s fabulous, thrilling art program is yet to be revealed. So there are many more surprises in store before July,” says Promoter of the Ruisrock Festival Mikko Niemelä.
Last week, Ruisrock announced a large cast of artists. The festival will include performances by e.g. The Chainsmokers (US), Marshmello, Dua Lipa (UK), Alan Walker (UK), Clean Bandit (UK), First Aid Kit (SE), and Years & Years (UK). Top Finnish artists include Cheek, Alma, Disco Ensemble, Haloo Helsinki!, Ismo Alanko, JVG, Kaija Koo, and Sunrise Avenue.
