Time to start counting down! In just under five weeks the 12th Reeperbahn Festival kicks off, and, to mark the occasion, today we’re announcing a nice batch of new additions to this year’s line-up.  

To Kill A King from London span an enormous musical spectrum that ranges from folk-rock underpinned by vocal harmonies through guitar-driven arrangements to electronically orchestrated songs. The one-of-a-kind voice of the band’s lead singer, Ralph Pelleymounter, not only provides the central thread running through To Kill A King’s complete body of work but also makes for many an emotional moment. Danish producer and vocalist Lydmor (photo) is quite firmly rooted in the world of electro-pop. Long since a familiar name on the Danish music scene, she’ll be at Reeperbahn Festival performing for the international music industry and presenting her first international release. With two EPs under his belt – “BeatsxBeerxGreen” and “18” – and at just 19 years of age, young German electronic producer Nugat is nothing short of a true “beat wunderkind”, and expectations for him are high. Swiss songwriter Damian Lynn has risen to success in his home country with his debut album and his latest single, “When We Do It”, which has taken off and soared on the radio, on social media, on YouTube, and on Spotify – high time, then, that he play the Reeperbahn Festival. Dating from the pre-digital-era, the “for fans of” category comes in handy for this next band: For fans of the early work of Mumford & Sons or Fleet Foxes, there’s Magic Giant, whose gig at this year’s Reeperbahn Festival is not to be missed; hailing from Los Angeles, the trio possesses a sound that’s grounded in traditional acoustic instruments yet updates the folk-rock genre through the addition of modern beats. Punk-rock attitude and electro sounds often enter into an extremely harmonious alliance – one need listen no further than REIN from Sweden and her single “Can’t Handle Me” to find evidence of this. We’ll no doubt be hearing much more from her. Hard to imagine, but London rapper Che Lingo approached his music in the most analogue way possible – with pen and paper . . . and yet his future-beats sound is currently the hottest thing rap-wise coming out of the UK.
