Ilosaarirock Joensuu 3 days 14th-16th July 2017

Parov Stelar (AUT)

Parov Stelar

Parov Stelar is one of the pioneers of electro swing and probably the coolest dance party host of all time. He has roused festival crowds all over Europe and is now ready to entertain Finland and Ilosaarirock. This most popular contemporary Austrian musician, real name Marcus Füreder, is with his band a huge phenomenon especially in the Central Europe. They turn broad festival fields into intimate clubs and make thousands of people to party like it's 1999.

Parov Stelar has won multiple music awards and playes the main stage at festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury and Sziget. He has also collaborated with Lady Gaga and Lana Del Ray, among others. So captivating is his style: the distinctive electro swing draws from old gypsy jazz and swing as well as modern EDM, house, electro, breakbeat, and so on. The result is an extremely addictive boogie of horn riffs, string runs and stellar vocal melodies.

We've received requests for years and now it's the time to deliver: this summer, Parov Stelar arrives in Joensuu on his The Burning Spider tour. You know how it's going to be: a total dance extravaganza.
