The first new confirmed name for Pohoda 2021 is a hip-hop trio from Phoenix, Injury Reserve. Their innovative approach has been present in their work since their first mixtapes Cooler Colors and Live from the Dentist Office. According to The Quietus, the key to their success lies in the “blistering fusion of industrial experimentation a la Death Grips”. The fusion is a result of collaboration between Parker Corey and old-school southern rapper duo Ritchie With a T and Stepa J. Groggs.

Another new name of Pohoda 2021 is the British punk rock band Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. The band is known for their high-energy performances, and their victory at the Kerrang! Awards in the Spirit of Punk category just confirmed that. They have also been nominated for the Heavy Music Awards (Best UK Band) and last yearʼs Kerrang! Awards (Best British Live Act). A year ago, they released End of Suffering, which is a 40-minute rockʼnʼrollercoaster that was included in the top 5 of the British charts. According to DIY, the album is “a bold, brave effort that’ll continue to see them rise through the rock ranks.” More here:

The Parisian band Acid Arab already stole our hearts away at Pohoda 2017. They play Eastern music on analogue rhythmic and bass boxes and create oriental acid, which is a fusion of cold techno, emotions and drama-charged orient. According to Pitchfork, their album Acid Arab Collections “is among the most enthusiastic collections of any sort of dance music to come out in recent memory.” The BBC presenter and DJ Gilles Petterson’s favourites released a great album Musique de France at the end of 2016 and last year they added a new release Jdid with the band's new member, keyboardist Kenzi Bourras. They will also present their new line-up and new music at the Trenčín airport in 2021. More here:

Another reconfirmed artist for Pohoda 2021 is the well-known techno DJ and producer Paula Temple. She released her debut Edge of Everything only after more than two decades on the scene, but according to reputable media, the waiting was definitely worth it. Resident Advisor wrote that this noisy, phantasmagoric techno sound specialist recorded the third best techno album of 2019. More here:

Another reconfirmed name for Pohoda 2021 is the British rap star - Slowthai. As mentioned by Hypebeast, "he is a turbulent punk rocker born in the era of grime." In May 2019, he released a debut album called Nothing Great About Britain, on which he collaborated with artists such as Mura Masa, Skepta and Slaves. The album made it to a top 10 of British chart, The Guardian placed it among ten best albums of the year and gave it the highest possible rating. Portal Dazed put the album to the third place among top recordings of the year. Slowthai was also nominated to the Mercury Prize. He is one of the undervalued voices of his generation whereas his texts serve as a manifesto of poor suburbs and excluded communities.

Another reconfirmed name of Pohoda 2021 is the joint transatlantic project of Hudson Hohawke and Lunice – TNGHT. Seven years after their fantastic debut, which greatly influenced the electronics of the past decade, they’ve returned to the scene with the album TNGHT II. It’s not the kind of music suitable as background noise or music you’d hear in a café. Hud Mo and Lunice describe it as the most perfect record they’ve ever made in terms of instrumentation. The result is excellent electronics with no categories applicable. It’s a record that falls outside the market rules or the expectations of others, one the duo made on their own terms. As Hud Mo says about the album: "I think it’s a good indicator if something sounds weird and refreshing to us".
