Flow Festival, which takes place at the Suvilahti area of Helsinki every August, has confirmed the Finnish debut of French singer Charlotte Gainsbourg. The artist, who is also known for her acting career, released her fourth album last year, after a lengthy break in recording. The album, named Rest, runs the gamut from intimate and sensitive to grandiose and was loved by critics and fans alike. The record was produced by SebastiAn, who has also worked with Frank Ocean and Daft Punk, among others.
Another addition to the festival lineup is future superstar, impressive R&B singer Jorja Smith. Smith, who recently won the critic’s choice prize at the Brit Awards, has many artists as fans, having already worked with the likes of Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Stormzy.
Flow Festival will also host fresh Nordic Music Prize winner Susanne Sundfør, known for her powerful interpretations of her songs, as well as electropunk icon Alice Glass, known for her work with Crystal Castles. She released her debut EP last year. In addition, Chicago born artist and poet Noname will perform at Flow. Her Telefone mixtape brought the music press to its knees and she has been featured on songs by e.g. Chance The Rapper and Mick Jenkins.
