The WorldPride line-up is stacked when it comes to Copenhagen in August.
Amongst the WorldPride festivities – the ‘Under The Rainbow Concert’ is taking place at K. B. Hallen on August 19th. The concert celebrates “a diverse range of talent from the LGBTI+ community in Denmark, Sweden, and abroad”. We gave the line-up a listen and these are our picks – three killer artists that must make your Pride playlists this summer.
Princess Nokia is already an international superstar and needs no introduction. The American rapper has made waves with their trademark, unabashedly queer hip-hop style. In Wonderland – they opened up about the integral part the LGBTQ+ community plays in their creative process – saying “Oh, honey, I’m inspired by the gays… when I tell you that I’m the gayest person in the world – I’m too gay to function”. We can’t wait to see Princess Nokia slay when she headlines ‘Under the Rainbow’ at WorldPride.
For those unfamiliar with ZAND – you are missing out. Their gender and genre bending, ‘ugly-pop’ has potential to steal the show in Copenhagen. When they burst onto the scene in 2018 – ZAND’s debut ‘Ugly Pop EP’ made an instant impression. ZAND’s sound is hard to pin down but imagine if Billie Ellish and Ashnikko had a very angry music baby… in space – that is ZAND!
Danish, queer mover and shaker Theo X brings his 80s disco tinged glam pop to the main stage at K. B. Hallen. Theo has a reputation for breaking down boundaries through his music – singing about his own lived experience challenging the perceptions of LGBTQ+ youth. Perhaps best known for ‘You Don’t Wanna Dance’ we know we’ll be down the front for Theo’s set.
