KAKKMADDAFAKKA plus special guests
on Thursday 9th February at The Garage.
Since their formation is 2004 Kakkmaddafakka has gone through many changes, but one thing has remained constant, a spectacular live show which has thrilled audiences all the way from the youth clubs of Bergen to international crowds of over 50 000.
The path to success has also been just as unconventional. With a maximalist approach and unashamed sense of fun, the Norwegian press and media wrote them off as a novelty act, so the band relied on word of mouth and early social media to get their message across. Luckily their message made it overseas and found the appreciative ears of bookers for some of the World’s most credible festivals, which led to early performances at Germany’s ultra hip Melt Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Iceland Airwaves.
In 2011 the band released their first international album ‘Hest’, with fellow Bergen resident Erlend Øye as producer, which received widespread critical acclaim outside of Norway, and spread their sound all over the globe. The follow-up album ‘Six Months is a Long Time' (2013), furthered this success and the band went on several sell-out tours of Europe, South America and Mexico, and performed at many of the major festivals in Europe.
Taking Norway´s finest to 2016, now on their 3rd studio album KMF the band are hitting record attendance numbers worldwide and selling out venues faster than ever.
