Kite & Support: Henric de la Cour

Since the founding of the Swedish Synth-Pop band KITE in 2008, singer Nicklas Stenemo and keyboardist Christian Hutchinson Berg have developed over the years into a captivating spectacle of passion, atmosphere, and community with their combination of cinematic electronics and anthemic pop. This was immortalized in 2019 during their performance at the Royal Swedish Opera with the support of a 16-piece orchestra.

Although Stenemo and Berg grew up in small Swedish towns (Stenslanda and Tranås), the project KITE has taken them on extensive tours around the world. The elemental melody and emotion of KITE’s music resonate in every culture; their lyrics can be felt without being understood. This sense of power also extends to their recordings - KITE prefers the EP format and has released six so far, true to their ethos of “all killer, no filler.”

In 2022, the duo played a series of concerts in the United States and shared the stage with other Dark Synth pioneers such as FRONT 242 and COLD CAVE. In September 2023, KITE returned to Europe. The highlight was the band’s largest show of their career at one of the most breathtaking and popular outdoor stages in the world: Dalhalla - an open-air theater built into a former limestone quarry in central Sweden.

In 2024, KITE will finally return to Germany! Seven concerts are planned for September, including a performance at the prestigious Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. Berlin, Bielefeld, Dortmund, Cologne, Frankfurt, and Nuremberg are also on the schedule. In addition, there will be several festival appearances in 2024.
