Norwegian duo Röyksopp aka Svein Berge & Torbjørn Brundtland are currently on the tip of everyone's tongues right now following the release of their latest masterpiece Junior. It follows their massive million selling debut Melody A.M released 2001, the acclaimed 2005 The Understanding and their hit singles Eple, Poor Leno, Only This Moment and Remind Me; which won Best Video at the MTV Europe Awards. The first single from the album, Happy Up Here is currently dominating playlists all over the radio, and there's more sensational songs on the way with guest vocals coming from fellow Scandinavian stars Robyn, Lykke Li, Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer-Andersson (The Knife). Put simply, Röyksopp are back, bigger than ever before, and we're delighted that they'll be headlining one of the arena's at Get Loaded in the Park this summer.
Other live additions to the bill include the underground sounds of both Parisian super-god Laurent Garnier and German duo Miss Kitten & The Hacker. Laurent Garnier has been wooing dancefloors around the globe for three decades with his broad stylistic range... everything from deep house to Detroit techno, acid and jazzy fused drum n bass gets thrown into the mix! With tracks Crispy Bacon and The Man with the Red Face, Garnier backs up his cult DJ status with two of the greatest dance records ever released and this year he presents his brand new album, Tales of a Kleptomaniac, supported by a full love show as seen on Clapham Common at Get Loaded this summer. Miss Kitten & The Hacker have an equally rich musical heritage with former solo and joint projects confirming them as pioneers of what was the electro-clash scene. In 2009 they're back in magnificent fashion with new album Two - the follow up to 2001's acclaimed First Album which spawned the anthems '1982' and Frank Sinatra. Regulars at Fabric and Bugged Out will testify to their show-stopping credentials and the new show unmasks a perfectly accessible, more elegant, more mature and more distinct - yet, still pop - side.
Weekend Tickets are now on sale for the whole Clapham Weekender which includes Get Loaded in the Park and its sister festival South West Four. South West Four takes place on Clapham Common the day before Get Loaded on Bank Holiday Saturday 29th August and features DJ legends Sasha & John Digweed (back to back) as headliners.
