M4Music: First Bands For The 20th Annual Festival Confirmed

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The 20th edition of m4music, the pop music festival run by Migros Culture Percentage, will take place from Thursday, March 30, through Saturday, April 1, 2017, in Zurich and Lausanne. Alma (FI), The Slow Show (UK), Pantha Du Prince (DE), Young Fathers (UK), Jan Blomqvist & Band (DE), Oddisee & Compny (US), Roosevelt (DE) and Loyle Carner (UK) have already confirmed their appearances. Swiss bands on deck include: Nemo (CH/BE), GeilerAsDu (CH/LU), Odd Beholder (CH/ZH) and Audio Dope (CH/BS). With its music festival, conference, Demotape Clinic and the «Best Swiss Video Clip» award, the jubilee edition of m4music will celebrate 20 years of discovering, supporting and networking in music. Early-bird tickets are currently available at a reduced rate.

In the festival's 20th year, there is yet much to be discovered. One of the first confirmed artists is a new up-and-comer: twenty-year-old Alma. The green-haired girl with a stand-out voice and the hit "Bonfire" will play her first regular concert in Switzerland. The Slow Show from Manchester will be striking up simple, epic songs in a brittle, husky baritone. Techno musician and concept artist Pantha Du Prince from Hamburg - known for his hypnotic electro compositions - also confirmed his appearance; as did Young Fathers, winners of the British «Mercury Prize 2014»; and Jan Blomqvist & Band, who will bring their danceable concert techno from Berlin. The list continues with singer Roosevelt, whose electro-pop debut album caused a stir in Germany last summer; and US-American rapper Oddisee & Compny showcasing their mélange of high-toned rap and modern jazz sounds. Twenty-year-old Loyle Carner, from Great Britain, is the newest rising star on the firmament of «UK-Raps». Acts confirmed from Switzerland include: Nemo, from Biel, who at 17 is pushing the boundaries of hip-hop; and the rap combo GeilerAsDu from Lucerne, which has released its fourth album. Odd Beholder is a duo of electro artists from Zurich who take a swing at the music world with their minimalist sounds and outlandish videos. Audio Dope, from Basel, was winner of the electronic category at the 2015 Demotape Clinic, and will be releasing new music next year.

Reduced-rate, early-bird 2-day passes are now available at CHF 75, instead of CHF 89, on or at the booking offices. The full program of m4music's 20th edition will be released at the beginning of February 2017, when accreditations for media representatives will also be accepted.
