Absalons Battle of the Bands

Join the hunt for Absalon's best band 2024!


Six cool bands and soloists will battle for the title of Absalon's best, and you can help choose who it will be!


In addition to you, there will be a sharp jury involved.


There will be two preliminary rounds on February 21 and March 13, where 3 bands each night will have the chance to qualify for the final on April 5.


For the first semifinal, you can meet these 3 acts:


Tiny Emperor:

Tiny Emperor is an electronic duo of brothers from Stockholm, Sweden. Their music creates an interesting mix of indie-based music with more IDM-influenced instrumentals. The duo has a sound filled with a majestic and longing atmosphere combined with lyrical themes of encouragement and compassion.




GAIA performs concerts with great energy and presence, focusing on making room for both stories and grandiose guitar solos along the way. The lyrics stand on a foundation of catchy pop melodies and strong grooves, elegantly weaving together the best of rock and funk with contemporary pop.




Fund is an energetic duo consisting of Andreas Kurup and Oscar Dilling. Rooted in the emotional tones and minimalism of post-punk, the duo combines dynamic midi-drums with catchy melody and big choruses. The lyrics stem from existential wonder and curiosity, laying emotions bare and questioning life's small and large complexities.



Practical Information:

Each act will have a 20-minute set to show why they should be Absalon's best band! After the 20 minutes, they will receive feedback from our judging panel.


When the evening's 3 acts have performed, one will advance to the final on April 5.
