The Prodigy added to Norway's Hove Festival line-up

The Prodigy - Invaders Must Die

Norway’s Hove Festivalen is proud to announce that The Prodigy will be smashing out their seminal hits as they take prime position at this year's festival. The groundbreaking UK band have sold over 17 million albums since starting up in 1990, and are reckoned to be one of the pioneers in modern electronic dance music.

Festival owner Melvin Benn of Festival Republic has followed The Prodigy with great fondness for almost twenty years:

“The Prodigy first played a festival for me in the early nineties in the old rave days in the UK. They played Tribal Gathering in Oxfordshire and volume of the show could be heard in London! They blew everyone away including myself, he says.”

Almost twenty years after the group formed, The Prodigy are back with a new album (#1 in the U.K) with their accompanying tour absolutely sold out. 'Invaders Must Die' confirmed the bands position as one of the premier groups in the world, and contained, among other things, a special guest performance by Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl.

"This is probably the 20th festival they have done for me so they are clearly a favourite and this year they play Reading and Leeds as well as Hove. The band have come back stronger than ever, and the show will epitomize mayhem. Miss it at your peril!" says Melvin Benn.

Hove Festival takes place between 22nd and 25th of June 2009 at idyllic Tromøya on the Norwegian south coast.

Confirmed acts so far include Faith No More, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Slipknot, Q-Tip, The Ting Tings and many others.
