The first time I heard (of) Alex Vargas was when I heard him pour his soul into “solid ground”. If your heart doesn’t hurt a little bit when you hear him deliver this beautifully simple song, I’m afraid to have to break it to you: you have no heart.
He’s come a long way since then.
When he came to Roskilde for the first time in 2016, his rise to fame was just starting and I think the festival had underestimated just how fast his star was really skyrocketing.
The tremendous queue and crowd around the Gloria stage, prevented me from seeing him perform that year. I have no doubt the organizers have saved him a spot on one of the bigger stages for 2018!
