The Electric Love Music Festival is proud to be announcing the Pegboard Nerds as part of its stacked lineup of acts…
Since the group formed in 2005, Pegboard Nerds has been on an unstoppable trajectory of international fame and acclaim from peers and industry mainstays with their mind-blowing, genre-bending EDM.

Today, this high-energy Danish/Norwegian duo—consisting of Alexander Odden and Michael Parsberg—is arguably the most popular music group on the independent Canadian record label, Monstercat. Since starting with the label back in 2011, Pegboard Nerds has accumulated millions of plays on their string of singles, including “This Is Not the End,” “High Roller,” “Bassline Kickin,” and their more recent hits, “Bring The Madness (ft. Excision)” and “BADBOI.”
From collaborating and remixing the likes of Krewella to Infected Mushroom, to being hand selected by Knife Party as show support, Pegboard Nerds’ ticket to international acclaim has been stamped. Taking listeners to new heights with their rollercoaster rides of sound and electrifying audiences from all over the world, Pegboard Nerds has undoubtedly established themselves as one of the hottest names in the EDM game.
In just the past year, Pegboard Nerds have led a conquest over the worldwide festival circuit, with explosive sets at the UK’s Global Gathering, Creamfields, Leeds Festival and Reading Festival, Canada’s SummersEND, Paradiso and SMF in the US. The massive buzz that follows each of their performances has afforded them invitations to everywhere on the map imaginable, from Ibiza fixture Amnesia to the Moscow Arena, right back to the top clubs across the US—no one and nowhere is safe from the Nerds.
