Optimus Alive! Festival, Portugal 2012THE KILLS & KATY B CONFIRMED FOR THE HEINEKEN STAGE

The American band The Kills are the latest confirmation for the Optimus Alive’12. The double act will play on 15th July on the Heineken Stage!

Alison “VV” Mosshart and Jamie “Hotel” Hince are one of the most important bands of the last decade. The band’s success came with the debut album, “Keep on Your Mean Side” (2003), which introduced the world to a garage-blues-rock in sexy version.

After the release of “The Wow” (2005) and “Midnight Boom” (2008), The Kills released last year’s fourth full-length, “Blood Pressures,” which was presented by the single “Satellite”, described by the magazine Q as “an indie anthem in the making.”

In 2011, Katy B released her debut album “On A Mission” and became a new sensation of British music. In 2012 she debuts live in Portugal on 14th July on the Heineken Stage.

Singer and songwriter, Katy B is mixing different musical genres, ranging from Dubstep to House through the R & B, making them a very unique style. The debut single, “Katy on a Mission”, produced by Benga, immediately put it on the looks of the public attention and criticism.

“On a Mission”, the debut album, established her as definitely one of the most interesting new values of British music and earned him nominations for several awards like the prestigious Q Awards, MTV Awards, Mercury Prize and, more recently, NME Awards.
