Chase & Status Live and eight others added to the lineup

Here's an early Christmas present for you, folks – Ilosaarirock's lineup just got merrier with the addition of nine new acts!

Making their way to Laulurinne Park in July is the unbeatable, scorching hot electronic music duo Chase & Status (UK). Their unwavering drum & bass hooks and pulse-pounding beats have been winning over cultured electronic music fans for nearly two decades, and their 2023 megahit Baddadan got absolutely everyone – young and old – buzzing. Get ready for a mind-blowing performance as Chase & Status hit the Ilosaarirock stage with a full live set – it's going to be one for the books.

"People have been clamoring and downright begging for some loud and fierce dance parties at Ilosaarirock, so we decided to answer the call properly with Chase & Status. This duo is undoubtedly going to deliver a party so unforgettable it'll take weeks to recover. So get ready to get your rave on – my heart's already pounding at the thought!" exclaims our promoter, Panu.

Committed to serving you a diverse festival program, Ilosaarirock's stages will also welcome Irish singer-songwriter Cian Ducrot (IE), who shot to global fame with his irresistible track All For You, and the Swedish metal giant Imminence (SE), known for their unique, hauntingly immaculate violin-infused metalcore.

Completing the lineup on the home front are Finnish rock group Don Huonot, celebrating their 35-year career next summer, the highly requested and anticipated Finnish rapper ibe, the eccentric electronic group Aavikko, the fast rising Finnish rap star Costi, the super-talented pop newcomer Goldielocks, and Pariisin Kevät, the beloved group making a long-awaited return from their recording and touring hiatus.
