The Aarhus festival said that it has booked the one band that has been requested more than any other over the past three years: American rock duo The Black Keys.
Who’s ‘Happy’ now, Roskilde? 
 
A day after the venerable Roskilde Festival announced its first 2015 headliner in the form of Mr ‘Happy’ himself, Pharrell Williams, Roskilde’s main rival NorthSide fired back with one of the biggest names in rock music. 
 
The Aarhus-based NorthSide announced The Black Keys and a handful of other bands for its June 12-14 festival. 
 
“We have worked hard in recent months to get the first acts ready for NorthSide, and obviously we have looked closely at the acts on the wish lists of our guests. Without a doubt, the most requested act for NorthSide the last three years has been The Black Keys, and therefore we are now insanely proud to be able to present the American duo to our audience along with four other great acts,” organisers said in a statement. 
 
The Ohio-formed Black Keys released their first album in 2002 but didn’t hit their big breakthrough until the 2010 album Brothers, which garnered them three Grammy Awards. Calling them “one of the world’s biggest rock bands”, NorthSide said that the band’s appearance would be the first Danish festival show in their 12-year career. 
 
Also announced on Friday were the New York rock band Interpol, Danish sensation MØ, American signer-songwriter John Grant and Swedish indie folk singer José González. 
 
The newest name on the Danish festival scene, Tinderbox, has promised to announce its first names by mid-November.
