Dua Lipa is a singer/songwriter and model of Albanian descent but was raised in London. She first started recording covers in YouTube and SoundCloud, producing her own style: stripped back production and burning, buttery vocals. She has revived those early rap and R&B by singing tracks from Chance The Rapper or Mila J. Dua Lipa is behind the hit singles “Be The One’, and “Hotter Than Hell”. Her current single “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” is her first entry on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Second on the line-up is American singer-songwriter and Grammy winner, Daya. On September 2015, she released her self-titled EP, Daya, which is a debut for her career. Her hit single “Hide Away” has reached at number 23 at Billboard Hot 100 and also landed on Spotify’s Artists To Watch 2015 Playlist. The single became so popular online that the YouTuber Tyler Oakley and celebrity gossip blogger has acknowledged it.
DNCE was formed in the summer of 2015 with vocalist Joe Jonas, bassist & keyboardist Cole Whittle, guitarist JinJoo and drummer Jack Lawless. They were known through their first release of Cake By The Ocean which was listed the US Billboard Top 100 and won “Choice Music for Party Song” at the Teen Choice Awards. Cake By The Ocean is also their certified platinum-selling breakout smash three times. Garnering over 68 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting, the flirty song “Toothbrush” comes with an exceptional music video as well as scoring global consumption over 1 million. The band took home the win for “Best PUSH Artist” and “Best New Artist” at the 2016 MTV European Music Awards and “Best New Artist” at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards making them as one of 2016’s breakout acts. They recently released their new single “Kissing Strangers” featuring Nicki Minaj.
Two Door Cinema Club
The third in the line-up is the alt-favorite Two Door Cinema Club who is currently on tour for their third album “Gameshow”.

Three schoolmates from Bangor Grammar School in County Down – Alex Tremble, Sam Halliday and Kevin Baird formed the band in 2008. They were influenced by the indie-rock band Foals and Maccabees, but with a different melodic twist rather than the fresh mutations in post landfill indie rock. Two Door Cinema Club has won awards from Choice Music Prize as Album of the Year, and Triple J Hottest 100 for “Undercover Martyn” in 2010, in “Triple J Hottest 100 in 2012 and 2013 to date.

She released her debut EP in 2013, “Introducing” with the hit single “Uncover”. “Introducing” was proclaimed triple-platinum in her Sweden, and proceeded by her another EP, ““Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself”.
