GOOSE - Electropop Live Act in Kortrijk

GOOSE Short Info

Described by The Guardian as an ‘onstage powerhouse, successfully bridging the gap between electronic music and rock’, GOOSE has continued to make big waves – ten years after the release of its much-hyped debut album Bring It On on Skint Records.

Their second album Synrise (2010) not only saw the band working with Peaches (on the highly addictive title track), they also enlisted legendary Pink Floyd designer Storm Thorger- son to create the artwork.

The third album Control Control Control was recorded live in the studio by producers Paul Stacey (Noel Gallagher) and Dave Sardy (Oasis, Soulwax) and released on GOOSE’s own label Safari Records. The album got a glowing reception and was chosen as electro album of the month by Mixmag.

After an extensive tour around the globe, their stage talent is well known. They shared stages with Underworld, Gary Numan, 2ManyDj’s, Justice, Vitalic and many more. 

Only the truly great manage to sell out the Ancienne Belgique three nights in a row, as GOOSE did in February 2013.

In 2013 a national newspaper highlights “The Year of the Goose” after setting fire to Rock Werchter and closing down Pukkelpop’s Main Stage in a truly magnificent way.
Willing to offer more than just a concert, GOOSE refines each performance by creating a true experience of music, lights and loads of energy. Therefor they received the Red Bull Elektropedia Award for Best Live Act.

Their music is worldwide used in promo campaigns of lead- ing companies like Nike, Heineken, Coca Cola, Motorola, Sony Playstation and recently Dior.
