All Things Live to launch Common Ground Festival
All Things Live is launching an intimate three-day music festival in Denmark’s capital city this summer.
The private equity-backed live entertainment group says the aim of the festival is to “move away from genre limitations and bring a diverse pool of artists to the same stage”.
The festival will be headlined by English electronic music group Metronomy, American rock band Parquet Courts and Turkish psych-folk band Altın Gün.
“One thing that really excites me about this is that you’d usually expect to see these headliners playing much larger venues”
“One thing that really excites me about this project is that you’d usually expect to see these headliners playing much larger venues, or to much larger festival crowds,” says promoter Liam Carroll.
“Experiencing live music in this manner really allows you to feel like you’re a part of something special.”
Commenting on the festival’s intimate venue, promoter Kasper Boldt says: “From the first brainstorm, we knew we wanted a post-industrial space, something a little left from centre. When we committed to having this year’s festival in-venue, we knew that Volume was going to be hard to look past.”
The All Things Live group, which mainly consists of promoters, also includes ICO Concerts and ICO Management & Touring (Denmark), Friction, Atomic Soul Booking and Stand Up Norge (Norway), Maloney Concerts, Monkfish and ROA (Sweden) and Busker Agency in Belgium.
