Altın Gün can be rightly referred to as a phenomenon. The group may be based in Amsterdam, but the diverse backgrounds of the band members perfectly explain the musical choices with which they have been rapidly conquering the world since 2018. And this is no exaggeration because, while the début album 'On’ made them stand out, the follow-up 'Gece’ catapulted them to world fame, with a Grammy nomination for 'Best World Album’, sold-out tours in the EU, UK and US and gigs at the biggest international festivals, including Coachella, Fuji Rock, Lowlands and Primavera Sound. Why? Their quirky, infectious re-workings of Turkish folk songs with influences from psychedelic rock, funk, synth-pop, reggae and everything in between.

 

Altın Gün is a dyed-in-the-wool live band. When that became impossible due to the pandemic, the group released two albums - 'Âlem’ and 'Yol’, both in 2021 - on which they experimented with synths and electronica from the safe environment of their own living rooms. Last year, Altın Gün came up with 'Aşk’, a return to form, recorded live in the studio. The songs harbour a yearning for the live circuit, for whipping up an audience and hypnotising a sweltering mass of bodies into ecstasy. You'd better be prepared; forewarned is forearmed!
