FESTIVAL NEWS: Duncan Laurence Replaces First Aid Kit at Pinkpop

Dutch Eurovision champion Duncan Laurence has been added the Pinkpop Festival line-up.

Laurence, who took home the Eurovision crown in Tel Aviv last week with his single Arcade, will replace Swedish duo First Aid Kit at the Landgraaf bash.

First Aid Kit had previously cancelled all upcoming summer shows due to health reasons, leaving a gaping slot on the Brightlands Stage during Pinkpop’s final, Fleetwood Mac-topped day. Laurence will fill this, appearing at 18:20.

He’s expected to play a selection of previously unshared music, some of which has been in the works for the best part of two years. He’ll undoubtedly treat Pinkpop to a rousing rendition of Arcade, too. There are still tickets.
