It´s that week again, Øya, that we have been looking forward to since Lykke Li so beautifully ended the 2011 edition. We still can´t belive it, but this years line-up is even strongen than last years! Brilliance proudly presents 3 amazing bands during the festival. See you in the pit!
TÔG / TUESDAY 7.8 / SUKKERBITEN / 20.50
They have been described as “Norwegian pop music’s new saviors”. They played to sold-out clubs, had a successful TV appearances and two US tours before they released their album in October 2011. This night they are presenting new songs from their upcomming album for the first time!
PHILCO FICTION / THURSDAY 9.8 / SJØSIDEN / 15.25
“a twisted pop sensation that lives up to the hype…incredibly good” – The Guardian. A remarkable Oslo trio centred round the rich, haunting songs of Turid Alida. Their RnB tinged, symphonic disco has gained them popularity across Europe and the US, through shows with Kwes, Chromatics, Neon Indian and, last week…Snoop Dogg(!) Releasing their debut album through Something In Construction in September.

Releasing their 12” debut-single “Mirage” including Kangding Ray remix worldwide Heyerdahl are doing their first gig EVER at this years Øyafestival followed by a European tour. Great nordic tunes for fans of Tomas Barfod, Fever Ray and DIIV.
