Faith No More to play Hove Festival 2009 + The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Slipknot, Fleet Foxes

Faith No More

A reunited Faith No More will headline this year's Hove Festival in Norway.

It is eleven years since the band initially split up, and Hove is one of the few hand-picked festivals in Europe which can add the band to their line-up. The legendary rock band will headline on Thursday the 25th June, 2009. So far Hove is the bands’ only confirmed gig in Scandinavia.

“Their headline performance at Pheonix in 1993 is still ringing in my ears. This is a hell of a coup for Hove! Faith No More’s music remains relevant today and their influence over today's younger bands is huge.” commented Melvin Benn, who in addition to Norway’s Hove Festival is one of the main organisers for Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading and Leeds.

Situated on an island close to the southern city of Arendal, the Hove Festival site is surrounded by deep woods and a mirror-like ocean. This is the most natural location for a festival that prides itself in being the first carbon neutral festival in Scandinavia.

The line up so far includes among others: The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Slipknot, The Ting Tings, Q-Tip, Fleet Foxes, Crookers, Disturbed, Metronomy, Eagles of Death Metal and many more.

Hove 2009 will take place between the 22nd and 25th of June. For tickets and more info about the festival, see
