Ilosaarirock 12.–14.7.2024 • JOENSUU

British superstar Tom Odell and six more acts confirmed

The lineup for the best weekend of the summer is getting even hotter with seven exciting new additions!

Renowned for his heartfelt performances and adored by fans worldwide, singer-songwriter Tom Odell (UK) will make a triumphant return to Ilosaarirock this summer. He first graced the festival's stage back in July 2015, marking his Finnish live debut.

Tom Odell, known for his blend of indie, rock, and folk-infused pop music, gained fame with his 2012 debut single Another Love, which has amassed an astounding 2 billion streams globally to date. Despite over a decade in the music industry, Odell's star power shows no signs of fading. His latest album's title track, Black Friday, became a viral sensation on TikTok upon release, with streaming numbers still soaring in the tens of millions. Tom Odell will perform at Ilosaarirock on Saturday, July 13th.

Joining our bustling lineup are also the raucous punk and noise rockers HotWax (UK), the energetically compelling punk ensemble Huora, the cherished luminary of the Finnish music scene, pehmoaino, and Samuli Putro, celebrating 20 years of his stellar music career this spring. They'll all take the stage on the festival's opening day, Friday, July 12th. Joining Tom Odell on Saturday are the rising pop sensation Mirella and Finland's hardcore punk legends, Terveet Kädet.

"Feels fantastic to welcome Tom Odell back to Finland and the Ilosaarirock stage; his performance is yet again bound to be something truly special. This announcement perfectly reflects the diverse range of artists we've curated for the Ilosaarirock stages—everything from high-energy punk to softer melodies and danceable pop. We aim to provide festival-goers with a diverse and unexpected lineup of performances that will continue to delight long after the lights at Laulurinne have dimmed," hypes our promoter, Panu.
