The Prodigy and Sick Puppies extends line up of Rock for People 2018!
Rock for People festival reveals another 2 bands, which is added to summer line up for 2018. Festival will host for the third time a UK’s electronic superstar THE PRODIGY, and for the first time to Czech Republic are heading Australian rock band SICK PUPPIES.
The Prodigy was founded in England’s Braintree, in 1990, by singer Liam Howlett. Along with The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and other acts, the band have been credited as pioneers of the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s and 2000s. They have released 6 studio albums and sold over 25 million records worldwide.
Already their debut album The Experience made it for a half year in the UK Top 40. Equally successful was the album Music for the Jilted Generation, which became No 1, and featured the favourite song Voodoo People. The third album The Fat of the Land and its songs like Firestarter, Breathe, and Smack My Bitch Up made them world stars. After Leeroy left, they released the album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (featuring the successful single Spitfire). In the next album Invaders Must Die, the eponymous single and song Omen became especially favourite. The album The Day is my Enemy hit the first place of the British charts immediately after its release (this is actually true for six consecutive albums of The Prodigy).
This California-based trio with Australian roots, Sick Puppies, is living proof that rock is a universal language, and its comradeship, strife, energy and the ability to get fans into boiling has no geographical, gender or other boundaries.
The band was formed in 1997 by singer/guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai, and to date have released 5 studio albums. They rose to prominence in 2006 when their song All the Same was uploaded to YouTube. The video supported the Free Hugs Campaign, which was launched in Sydney, and has since received over 77 million views on the website. This success was followed up with release of their second record Dressed Up as Life in 2007, which entered the Billboard 200 at number 181. The latest record Fury (2016), was recorded with new vocalist Bryan Scott after Shimon Moore left the band on October 2014.
Rock for People 2018 will take place in Festivalpark in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic from July 4th to 6th. Tickets are available to purchase at www.rockforpeople.cz/en/vstupenky, until December 31st, priced from 1600,- CZK.
