Teddy’s Last Ride – The Others
The Others is an electronic pop-spectacle that features some misfit aliens and their cautionary tale of the future. With other-worldly vibrato, vocalist Andy Smart leads the audience through chapters of his own heartache & loneliness, with the use of projections, dance, and club beats. Reflecting upon what makes us human, the power of vulnerability, and the value of light in dark spaces. Get ready: The Others have arrived.

Why do we put this in front of you?
Teddy’s Last Ride is one of the most exciting young groups from the North and Andy Smart is perhaps the very best performer. This collective is building a unique style with which they bring together pop and art influences in an original way. And therefore a perfect match at our festival.
Last year they thrilled people with the performance Self-Accusation (in which Andy sang) and the raw dance solo THIRST on a sand mountain caused a stir. The Others is at the same time a pop spectacle and a vulnerable personal story brought in powerful songs.
