Main Stage

Andres Kõpper was on the set of an Estonian television series when the name came to him. The rising electronic pop singer-producer had been developing songs marrying echoing synths, huge hooks and nostalgic lyrics about joyful youth for a while, experimenting with sounds in his Tallinn home between shifts as a director on film and TV projects. Inspired by everyone from Alt-J to acoustic troubadour Jose Gonzales and pop production prince Mura Masa, 27-year-old Kõpper has earned over 6m Spotify streams since the infectious, delicate chills of his debut 2015 single ‘Move’. Kõpper – who performs live alone, armed only with a series of synths and electronic pads –  says he’s determined to build on the success he’s experienced till now as NOËP.
