Arctic Monkeys

Continuously reinventing themselves musically, with new musical approaches on every album and ever present unique, poetic lyrics, Arctic Monkeys are one of the most influential indie rock bands of the past decade. Best Kept Secret has a special bond with Arctic Monkeys, as the band headlined the very first edition of the festival in 2013 with what went on to become a legendary show that everybody in the audience remembers vividly. A month later, their album AM entered the Dutch album charts at number one, charted in the top 10 in 27 other countries and to date, their songs have been streamed globally in excess of 6 billion times, with 5.5 million streams every day. Now, five years later, the expectations are through the roof for their sixth album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (release May 11) and live comeback. What will the new music sound like? How did Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley and Matt Helders reinvent themselves this time? We are more than thrilled to have Arctic Monkeys close the mainstage on Friday the 8th of June.
