It’s already been a big week for Tennent’s Vital fans with Avicii just announced to headline Day 2 of the festival on Friday 26th August …. and the Swedish dance vibe just got stronger.

Today Tennent’s Lager and MCD announce that celebrated Stockholm-based Galantis has been signed to add still more power to that great bill.

Coming together as Galantis, music mega-names Christian Karlsson, aka Bloodshy, and Linus Eklöw, aka Style of Eye, changed the plot for what’s hot and current in electronic dance music. They bring an incredible audio/visual experience to live performance that matches the really, really big vibe of their music – so Belfast crowds can be prepared for something that will set Boucher Road Playing Fields rocking.

In 2015 Galantis was named Best Breakthrough Artist at the 30th International Dance Music Awards. They are best known for ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’ and ‘Runaway (U&I)’ which was nominated for Best Dance Recording for the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Releasing a song a week in advance of their debut self-­titled EP which went to #4 on the iTunes dance chart, it only took days for the tracks to cross 100,000 plays. Galantis are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut, full-length album.
