Disclosure, Kraftwerk and Parquet Courts play Norway’s Øya festival

Slayer, Angel Haze and Haim will play Oslo bash today (August 10)

Disclosure, Kraftwerk and Parquet Courts were among the bands to play at Øya festival in Norway, Oslo yesterday (August 9).

This year’s bash has already seen sets from the likes of Blur and Cat Power and, yesterday, British sibling duo Disclosure were on hand to bring their blend of UK garage and 90s house to the festival. Playing an early evening slot, the pair’s setlist consisted mainly of hits from their debut album ‘Settle’ on the Sjøsiden stage.

“We had an album out this year and now we’re gonna play some songs off it,” Guy and Howard Lawrence told the crowd before launching into their Eliza Doolittle collaboration ‘You & Me’. They then went on to play renditions of ‘White Noise’ and their remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘Running’ before closing their set with ‘Help Me Lose My Mind’ and ‘Latch’.


Disclosure played:

‘When A Fire Starts To Burn’
‘You & Me’
‘White Noise’
‘What’s In Your Head’
‘Confess To Me’
‘Help Me Lose My Mind’

Earlier on in the afternoon, Brooklyn rockers Parquet Courts played on the Vika stage, with a set largely drawn from their debut album proper, 2012’s ‘Light Up Gold’, while in the evening, electronic pioneers Kraftwerk continued their tour of European festivals with their 3D show.

Audience members were given special glasses to watch the four-piece play a 90-minute set with specially created visuals. Opening with ‘The Robots’, the band played material from across their hugely influential back catalogue including ‘The Model’, ‘Autobahn’ and ‘Radioactivity’.

Øya festival is set to continue today (August 10) with sets from Haim, Slayer and Angel Haze.
