Iggy Pop

He's 76 this spring. Even at that relatively old age, Iggy Pop remains the most convincing comic book character in the entire world of rock. An enigmatic performer. A master of the stage. A provocateur. And the proud parent of two absolute evergreens. ‘Lust for Life’ is without a doubt one of the most energetic rock songs ever. And ‘The Passenger’ is still one of the most danceable. Iggy Pop was punk back in the sixties as a member of The Stooges and, more than half a century later, is still showing the youngsters what’s what on his latest album, ‘Every Loser’ (2023). Furthermore, it’s a welcome return for one of the legends and founding fathers of the festival. Pop appeared previously in 1987 and 1991, at the time of such successes as ‘Candy’ and ‘Real Wild Child’, and in 2016.
