One Love Music Fest reveals new lineup

British alternative rock band Pulp

Organizers of Istanbul’s famous music festival “Efes One Love” have announced that Kimbra, Pulp and Selah Sue will perform as the festival’s main lineup.

The British alternative rock band Pulp, which formed in England in 1978, will perform a selection of their top hits with all of their original members after a ten-year hiatus from the stage.

Kimbra, a New Zealand singer, achieved international fame with her duet “Somebody That I Used to Know” with Australian artist Gotye last year. Her eclectic fashion sense and stylish music videos have quickly earned her fans around the world.

Selah Sue, a Belgian funk and soul musician, sold over 400,000 copies of her debut album in Europe — 200,000 of those in France alone. She won a European Borders Breakers Award (EBBA) in January 2012 along with the EBBA Public Choice award.

In its 11-year history, “Efes One Love” has brought a total of 72 groups and 1,459 artists to the stage in Istanbul. The festival hosted Suede, Manic Street Preachers, Editors, Happy Mondays, Cake and Nneka last year. This year’s One Love Festival will be held at SantralIstanbul on July 14 and 15.
