The Helsinki-based event will provide a platform for performances from both international and local acts, with new additions including Swedish-born singer, songwriter and rapper Neneh Cherry, who will perform with the British instrumental duo RocketNumberNine.
Neneh Cherry and RocketNumberNine recently released a collaborative album entitled ‘Blank Project’, produced by prominent British producer Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet.
Other new international additions to the festival, which will be held from 8-10th August 2014, are energetic Norwegian indie-rockers Kakkmaddafakka along with electronic pop from feisty Danish newcomer Karen Marie Ørsted aka Mø.
