Röyksopp's festival summer

 Date:29/08/2009 - 30/08/2009
 Type:Culture, Music
 Location:England, London & Cheltenham

Following the release of their much-anticipated third album 'Junior', Röyksopp heads back to the UK for festival stints in London and Cheltenham.

'Junior' follows the massive success of Röyksopp's debut album 'Melody AM' and the subsequent release 'The Understanding'. On their third album the band fuses elements of both their previous albums with a blend of electro, house and collaborations with Swedish singers of the moment Robyn and Lykke Li. The band's favourite singers from their previous two releases, Norwegian Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer from Sweden, also contribute to the new album.

"Every once in a while we surface to share our music and shed some light in an otherwise bleak reality," say the boys. "Sounds self-centred and pompous, you say? Yes indeed! We’re so confident because this time around we’ve worked with the likes of Robyn and Lykke Li, as well as old time friends Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer - hence our enthusiasm!"

29 August: Greenbelt Festival, Cheltenham Racecourse
30 August:
