LoveBN1 Fest is thrilled to welcome Ariana and the Rose to the main stage line up for Sunday 5th August. 

Ariana and the Rose writes, sings, and performs a coming-of-age story, one that resonates with current music lovers who seek communities where they can totally be themselves. Think a cosmic fusion of Kate Bush and Robyn: strong women of synth-pop and alternative rock, grandiose but grounded. Her honest synth driven songs have accumulated over 3.5 million streams and her vivid experiential music videos have amassed over 2 million views on Vevo.

Ariana’s breakthrough EP ‘’Retrograde’’ features singles “Supercool” and “How Does That Make You Feel,” two synth anthems, celebrating the strength and duality of the female spirit, both tracks gaining notoriety and praise from outlets such as Vogue and Nylon. Ariana’s songwriting is also showcased on, “Love You Lately’’ with electro-R&B duo RKCB. The heartbreak song has been supported by the likes of Noisey, applauding Ariana’s ability to “capture the sting of relationship disintegration,” accumulating over 2 million streams and featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist in multiple countries (UK, Canada and Portugal) and delivering a cosmic music video with over 1.1 million views. Ariana kicks off 2018 featuring on Feenixpawl & Harley Knox single ‘’Bones’’ released on their label Eclypse, an imprint of Armada Records, that will no doubt stake its claim as one of 2018’s most infectious pop-dance crossover anthems.

While touring across the UK and the US supporting and sharing stages with artists such as Cyndi Lauper, Peaches, Jack Garratt, Wolf Gang, Allie X, Foxes, Betsy and festivals including The Great Escape and SXSW, Ariana has been working on music and a show that truly represents herself. Her unique brand of performance that transcends the traditional boundaries of a concert is truly showcased in Ariana and the Rose’s immersive live music party ‘’light + space,’’ a galactic multi-sensory disco. After a sold out premier in NYC Ariana is bringing ‘light + space’’ back to House of Yes in Brooklyn for a trilogy of dates in April – June 2018.

Nylon Mag captured Ariana’s galactic grandiosity when they said, “Pop culture craved a technicolored synth pop powerhouse in the making, and Ariana and the Rose dropped in from her special place in the cosmos to quench it.” Her purpose is clear: step into her starry universe, and leave your inhibitions at the door.
