OMVF Opening Party

OK Go (US) + support: The Orphan

Probably best known for their innovative music videos and catchy tunes, American indie rock band OK Go will perform at The Opening Party of Oulu Music Video Festival on August 25.

Founded in Chicago, OK Go broke through with their sophomore album Oh No in 2005. The amazing one-shot treadmill video for the single Here It Goes Again became a YouTube hit with over 50 million viewers and the band was also awarded a Grammy later on. OK Go's latest album Of Blue Colour of the Sky was released in January, and the video for the single This Too Shall Pass also became a YouTube hit with 6 million views in only a week.

The tent will be warmed up by The Orphan, a Helsinki-based one-man-band.

Tickets available in June at Cultural Centre Valve (Hallituskatu 7, Oulu) and Lippupalvelu Box Offices.

Wednesday August 25. Festival Tent, Lammassaari Island.  Tickets in advance 18 € / door 20€.
