Over the course of an impressive career now stretching into its fourth decade, PJ HARVEY has established herself as one of the music world’s most influential artists. From the raw, grunge-inspired days of the 90s, to the iconic releases of recent decades, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, guitarist, poet and artist Polly Jean Harvey has left an indelible mark on music history.
It all started in 1991 when the self-titled trio PJ HARVEY broke through with their debut single “Dress”. The following year, the debut album “Dry” followed, and Rolling Stone Magazine was quick to praise and name such as “Best Songwriter” and “Best New Female Singer”. After the release of the critically acclaimed “Rid of Me”, she continued her career as a solo artist with a number of successful releases. Albums such as “Is This Desire?”, “Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea”, the declared genius “Let England Shake” and “The Hope Six Demolition Project”, she has time and again proven her musical flair, creativity and innovative artistry.
After a six-year break, she returned to the stage in autumn 2023 and if we are to believe the endless, panegyric reviews from concerts in England, France, the Netherlands and Germany, we have an all-consuming and hypnotic concert experience in store when PJ HARVEY headlines Bergenfest on Wednesday 12th June 2024!
For the two concerts at Sentrum Scene in Oslo in October, all of the 3,400 tickets were snapped up in just one minute and 44 seconds. PJ Harvey has built an impressive career, with eight Brit Award nominations, seven Grammy Awards and she is the only artist to receive the prestigious Mercury Prize twice! We are looking forward to experiencing PJ Harvey’s wonderful musical universe at Bergenfest 2024, a festival booking we have wanted for a long time!
