After cancelling the 2020 event back in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers have today (18 August) unveiled the first list of names performing at the Norwegian festival in 2021.
Bon Iver will headline next year's event on the Wednesday, while Norway's own AURORA will take the Saturday night headline slot. Both headliners were due to perform this year's event before it was cancelled.
Bikini Kill, Michael Kiwanuka, Emilie Nicolas, Kvelertak, Sondre Lerche, Musti and KAMARA have also been confirmed for the 2021 festival today (18 August).
