As summer is settling in, Unknown Festival is creeping closer, and yesterday two new additions were added to the already impressive line-up, spread over five days from the 8th-12th September.
The Unknown Festival 2014 line-up already consists of great live music acts and DJs such as Chic Feat. Nile Rogers, Henrik Schwarz, KiNK, Ten Walls, Dixon, DJ Koze, Optimo, Seth Troxler and many more. Two new live acts have now been added in the form of Kindness and SOHN.
Kindness is the London-based and Peterborough-born singer/producer Adam Bainbridge, who has recently returned from touring his new album ‘World, You Need A Change Of Mind’. An imaginative blend of genres contrived through the use of powerful synth chords and woozy vocals, the album contains the singles ‘Anyone Can Fall In Love’ and ‘House’, that have through their incessant funk, given the singer a large number of admirers. With production from Philippe Zdar of Cassius, Kindness’ fits into Unknown Festival’s eclectic line-up like a glove.
The second addition is the Vienna-based live music act SOHN, who is currently touring his debut album ‘Tremors’. The LP has been making waves around the world giving the musician/singer and producer a heap of summer festival dates, including his appearance at Unknown Festival. He burgeons a minimalistic and electronic take on soul, providing dreamy tracks that are perfect to enjoy under the Croatian sun on Rovinj’s coastline.
These two new additions join the plethora of talent already set to take to Unknown Festival this year, and as time ticks Rovinj’s forests, boats and islands are starting to call.
