Anouk & White Lies
The line-up for Saturday, 28 July was already impressive when Alanis Morissette and Goo Goo Dolls were confirmed, today we’re pouring some sugar on-top: Anouk and White Lies!
There are a great many female vocalists. And then there is Anouk, all in a class of her own. When she sings, her voice rises from the depths of her being and impacts on the listeners, touching them profoundly. For over sixteen years Dutch and Belgian listeners have been enthralled by this forthright woman who charts her own course, guided by her musical intuition. She still is a hugely popular artist in The Netherlands and Belgium. Of the eleven albums released by her, seven have hit the top spot of the album charts, while thirteen singles have become massive top ten hits, a.o. ‘Nobody’s wife’, ‘R U Kiddin Me', 'Girl', 'Lost', ‘Good God’ and ‘Modern World’
White Lies are an English post-punk band from Ealing, London. Formerly known as Fear of Flying, the core band members are Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar), Charles Cave (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums. . White Lies' musical style has been described as dark yet uplifting by the media, drawing comparisons to Editors, Interpol, Joy Division, and The Killers. 'To lose my life', 'Farewell to the fairground' and defenitely 'Bigger than us' have all become festival anthems
Six acts confirmed for two festivaldays, so there’s a lot more coming. Stay tuned!
