Norway’s Øya Festival is shaping up to be a bit good this year. Now the Oslo weekender has announced The XX as Thursday headliners while the legendary Pixies will be topping the bill on Friday.
Also joining the bill is Cash Money star Young Thug, Cashmere Cat and rising singer Kelly Lee Owens.
They join a gaggle of already announced acts including Lana Del Rey, Mac De Marco, Vince Staples, Angel Olsen, MØ, Car Seat Headrest, Jenny Hval and Julia Jacklin in a line up that can already be defined as “most certainly not bad at all”.
The festival runs from August 8th-12th and tickets are on sale now.
