Electronic pop duo
22 June at 19:00
With Marie Louise Persson Bjarnason's strong and characteristic vocals in focus, Noréll creates alternative pop with an edge that draws on R’n’B, electro, dance and house. The trio also features two producers Victor Hagner and Nichlas Malling, and so far with just three singles, the band has secured spots at several large summer festivals. Noréll is a name worth watching out for, and we're predicting a party in Tivoli before the summer holidays really get going.

With the EP Indre By Xander is back with his first combined release since 2012. As always, the starting point for the lyrical universe is Xander's own honest rendition of life for better or worse. The songs reflect themes about love, not taking it for granted, acting as role models and stories from nightlife, and feature S!vas and others. Though we can't promise Xander will bring guests along yet, we are confident this will be the perfect concert for getting a jump on the summer holidays.

Grandiose and melancholic
With clear, wistful melancholy, musician IAMJJ is not afraid to openly admit that his musical and artistic heroes are the legendary Nick Cave & Leonard Cohen as well as Damien Hirst & Tal R, so he certainly has something to live up to! Before throwing himself into music, he explored his flair for painting and drawing, which explains why art now infuses his music. His writing and compositions harmonise sharps with flats, ugliness and beauty – always ready to explore limits. Dip into a world of expansive emotions in the Orangery while waiting for his first release to hit the streets.

He has reaped impressive reviews – six hearts out of six from Politiken newspaper – for his first EP Slumromantiker, and his single Hvorhen has been frequently streamed. Emil Kruse is 23 and grew up in Vangede, just like one of his idols, Dan Turréll, who inspired his rhythms and lyrics.

The band name is a combination of Benjamin and Albert, the two main band members. The album Nu features a range of guests, including Suspekt and Katinka. This is their first concert in Tivoli, so there's no telling if they will bring guests along. But it's sure to be an awesome party.

Raucous, floating synth
School of X is a brand new solo project from musician Rasmus Littauer, the regular drummer for bands like MØ and The Asteroid Galaxy Tour. He has always composed , written and produced, alone and with others, but is now seriously focusing on his solo project School of X, which has proved to be a great idea.

Three years after their first release, the EP Ragazzi, created a stir with its success, Cancer's long-awaited debut album Totem is ready. Cancer consists of Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild, who doubles as lead singer for the band When Saints Go Machine, and Kristian Finne Kristensen, who has the solo project Chorus Grant. They joined forces shortly after Nikolaj's father died of cancer and translated the sense of loss and emptiness into Cancer's strong compositions driven by Vonsild's intense vocals. It's rough but incredibly beautiful.

Delicious pop with an upbeat sound! Listening to the single Run, it's hard to resist the urge to dance, but there's something else going on here, as well. Your heart is filled with both joy and longing, and it's these opposing feelings that Icelandic frontman David manages to express so perfectly. He uses heavy beats and minor key tunes to create a shadowy universe, while the rhythm is upbeat and perfect for the dance floor. We dare you not to enjoy his performance at the Orangery.

The best of songs exalting rural life
Jonah Blacksmith is a constellation formed by brothers Simon and Thomas Alstrup that reflects the influence of their biological and musical heritage in songs that evoke their childhood village community. Jonah Blacksmith's celebration of their musical inheritance from granddad's time culminates in a raw and passionately alternative folk rock. The seven-strong orchestra's dreamy and energetic 'horseshoe' music traces wistful links back to childhood and growing up among the plains, coastline and windswept countryside of their ancestral home of Thy.

They have so far released one single, Loverboy, which merges sombre tones with pop. According to the calendar, this is the last evening of the summer, but it's safe to say you can look forward to darkness closing in with the best of company - with MATTIS.

Urban rap and dusty R'n'B
The dusty productions are a hallmark of the young Lord Siva, combined with plenty of energetic drive. With assistance from producer Carl Barsk, his two EPs, 100 and 180, have made a strong impact and helped redefine the sound of Danish R'n'B. Right now, he is making headlines with his single Blind from the forthcoming EP – the third and final addition to the trilogy – which is expected to be ready in the spring of 2017, so the concert will be bursting with new music when Lord Siva hits Tivoli.
