New artists at Orange Warsaw Festival 2019!
We are expanding the line-up of Orange Warsaw Festival 2019: The Raconteurs, one of the most anticipated rock bands of this decade, and Quebonafide, one of the leading figures of contemporary Polish hip-hop, for whom it will be the only concert at summer festivals this year!
When at the end of last year, 10 years after the release of their last album "Consolers of the Lonely", The Raconteurs presented two new songs "Sunday Driver" and "Now That You're Gone", fans held their breath, waiting for more news from the American group. Shortly after there were announcements of the new album and the concert tour. Today we can announce - The Raconteurs join the Orange Warsaw Festival 2019 line-up!
The idea for the band was born almost 15 years ago. Two good buddies - Jack White (the legendary frontman of The White Stripes) and Brendan Benson wrote a song together, which was to become the first single of their new band. It was "Steady As She Goes" of course - one of the biggest rock hits of 2006, from the debut album "Broken Boy Soldiers". In 2008, the group released their second album "Consolers of the Lonely", which turned out to be just as successful, bringing The Raconteurs, their first Grammy award. After the tour spanning several continents, they decided to take a break. It turned out that the audience had to wait a full decade for their comeback, but the band's latest music shows that it was worth waiting so long!
Quebonafide is a rapper from Ciechanów and founder of QueQuality record company. His fresh approach to rap, unconventional and often experimental flow, refined rhyming technique - these features have already been present on 'Ezoteryka' - a debut album that has gone gold on pre-order, and after a few months has achieved platinum status. After the release of 'Ezoteryka', Quebonafide and his team played nearly 200 concerts in Poland and abroad. His shows are always spectacular and energetic.
The inspiration for the following recordings have become long journeys to Japan, South Africa, Mexico, Thailand, Iceland, USA or Australia. The effect of his travel experiences is the album 'Egzotyka' (2017), which reached platinum status before the premiere. 'Egzotyka' became the best-selling Polish album in 2017.
In April 2018, Quebonafide along with Taco Hemingway, as a duo named Taconafide, released the album 'Soma 0.5 mg'. The project was promoted with a concert tour covering 7 largest Polish cities. Within a few weeks the album went triple platinum.
