D-A-D from Denmark is a rock band, period. That's the long and the short of it. But what a rock band they are! They've been playing their deceptively simple, positive and delightfully melodic rock music since 1982, and they are better at their job than perhaps anyone else. D-A-D's songs are full of time-honoured hard rock spirit, and their experience, spanning for decades, makes them look a vigorous, unstoppable show machine. If you need further proof, listen to the hit song I Want What She's Got from their curiously named last year's album DIC.NII.LAN.DAFT.ERD.ARK. From that irresistible groove and unforced passion, you can tell that these daddies were not born yesterday.

Performing on the Ilosaarirock Festival Main Stage, D-A-D makes for the best imaginable soundtrack for a summer festival evening. How is it possible to sound so groovy, vehement, relaxed and lascivious, all at once? If you're looking for a great night out, our recommendation is the momentary lapse of reason that is D-A-D and a surrender to the best night of the summer!
