Line up Holland International 2024 complete

21 February 2024

We have some great names to announce!

Warren Haynes Band, Robben Ford, and The Devon Allman Project have been added to the line up. DeWolff XL, Eric Johanson, Thorbjørn Risager & the Black Tornado and Kyla Brox will also make an appearance. This completes the line up of this year’s festival. Day tickets are on sale now.

For Warren Haynes, this won’t be his first performance in Grolloo; in 2017 he attended with Gov’t Mule. He picked up the guitar at age 11 and has been playing ever since. So far, Haynes released three albums and has collaborated with a string of other musicians. For instance, he recently was a guest on Dolly Parton’s new album Rockstar.

Robben Ford taught himself to play the guitar upon hearing the two guitarists from The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Although Ford has embraced many different genres, the blues remained at the core of his guitar playing. Ford is a five-time Grammy nominee and was named as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century” by Musician magazine. His latest album, Night In The City, was released in December.

Devon Allman is the second son of Gregg. But Devon is also known for his own bands, such as Honeytribe and the Royal Southern Brotherhood. He will visit Grolloo with The Devon Allman Project, a six-piece band that has previously toured about 20 countries. Last year, he collected a world-record achievement for performing 50 concerts in the 50 U.S. states in 49 days.

Hammond-driven power trio DeWolff have released ten LPs and three live albums, won an Edison, recorded an album with Black Keys producer Mark Neill, and played over 1000 gigs in Europe, Australia, Indonesia and Russia. With their 2023 album Love, Death & In Between in tow, as well as the “XL”-lineup with added bass, percussion, horn section and backing vocals, they will blow away Grolloo as they did in 2022.

Blues rock artist Eric Johanson received his first guitar at age five and became a self-taught prodigy. He also developed a love for hard rock and now uses blues as a springboard for an edgier, broader sound. On his latest album, 2023’s The Deep And The Dirty, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts, Johansen offers ‘everything from roadhouse roots-rock to dark, bluesy Americana’.

Thorbjørn Risager discovered the music of B.B. King and Ray Charles in his late teens and had long been singing the blues when he enrolled in the conservatory in Copenhagen. He formed Thorbjørn Risager Blue 7 in 2003 before renaming the band to Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado in 2014. They have released a string of albums, the latest being 2022’s Navigation Blues.

British blues and soul vocalist Kyla Brox has established herself as a standout artist, being hailed as “the finest female blues singer of her generation” and also known as “Britain’s answer to Aretha Franklin.” Brox has won both the UK and Europe Blues Challenge and was voted Best Female Vocalist in the 2019 European Blues Awards. To date, she has released five studio albums.
