Slottsfjell Festival 2012 // Playlist

by The 405 (Google+), 16 July 2012

To celebrate the forthcoming Slottsfjell Festival (19-21 Juli 2012 - Tønsberg, Norway) - festival organiser Henning Krane has put together a pretty awesome playlist of bands set to play the event. He's also been kind enough to put together a short piece on a few artists playing the festival that you might not be too familiar with.

Of course there are plenty of bands playing Slottsfjell this year that readers of the 405 would in theory be familiar with - New Order, Friendly Fires, Chase & Status and so on, so I'll pick out a couple that they might not be so well known.

120 Days - Dahle Disco

I actually used to manage this band back in the day, but two classic albums and a lot of rock'n'roll shenanigans later they are breaking up. Slottsfjell will be the last Norwegian festival the band will play. Their blend of krautrock and techno spawned a host of imitators but the band led by the legendary libertine - Ådne Meisfjord will long be remembered for some classic tracks not least this Lindstrøm produced track "Dahle Disco".

Insense - Death For Me Death For You

One of Oslo's most finest metal / hardcore bands who're signed to Norwegian premier league label Indie Recordings.

Seigmen - Hjernen Er Alene

Local boys done good, Seigmen originally hail from Tønsberg and Slottsfjell's own bar / venue is actually named after their classic album "Total". The band have reformed for the show and even though they've added a couple of other dates to their diary now, this is the one that will be really special.

She Keeps Bees - Gimme

A random tip whilst chatting to Sharon Van Etten in a horrendous Brooklyn hipster venue called Shea Stadium. The best thing really about booking a festival is being able to put on this kind of relatively unknown (at least here in Tønsberg) band that I really love and would like to put in front of our audience.
