If you want to stay ahead of the curve in all things new music related for the coming summer, there really is only one place you need to be swinging yourself to: SPOT Festival in Aarhus has always been on the forefront of taste. More than 150 of Scandinavia’s and Europe’s hottest talents are tapped to play on a number of stages throughout Denmark’s second biggest city over the course of 3 days and nights from May 2nd to 4th for the festival’s 25th edition. With dedicated styles ranging from the hottest new music out of Greenland – climate change pun very much intended – to the international jazz and funk fusions curated by Roots&Hybrid, to an evening all about metal.
One name on the line-up and very much on your summer schedule should be Mayes out of Germany’s second city, Hamburg. The singing and songwriting quartet is no stranger to the airs up North, and to avid followers of Poule d’Or in Photo-Interview #16 back in February. The group has just released an exciting live session the other week, something to look forward to in Aarhus. They are set to play Saturday May 4th, 16:00 at HeadQuarters, presented by Music Cities Network.
