In the organizer's words:

Rikas are going on tour again! After their critically acclaimed soul-pop album "Showtime" from 2019, two sold-out tours and festival appearances at MS Dockville, Puls Open Air and the Southside Festival, the guys have been busy again. After "Overthinking" and the "Short Stories EP", Rikas returned in 2022 with new music that heralded the start of a new era for the quartet.

"Goodbye Sunshine" was the title of the latest EP. Compared to the band's previous releases, "Goodbye Sunshine" appears in a new color palette, almost as if the band had deliberately toned down the saturation for once. You can hear a melancholy and expansiveness that is touching in a beautiful way. It was probably their trip to Los Angeles in March 2022 that breathed new life into the band. Here they found themselves in the studio with none other than producer and musician Jonathan Rado, who has already worked with artists such as Weyes Blood, The Killers, Whitney and The Lemon Twigs.

With numerous songs on rotation throughout Europe and over 35 million streams on Spotify, Rikas are slowly but surely establishing themselves as one of the most sought-after music exports from Germany. Why? Quite simply: Rikas' music moves and makes you happy. In February, Rikas released their new single "Passenger", inviting listeners on a new musical journey, and the follow-up single "Strangers" is another masterpiece from Rikas, highlighting their creative development and ability to tell profound stories. The band invites listeners to embark on this unique musical journey, where human relationships take center stage."
