DENMARK – Prior to Copenhagen Pride 2016, the 2016 Danish representatives Lighthouse X announced on Facebook their split.
We have decided to play our last Lighthouse X show during Copenhagen Pride this coming Wednesday. We are ending our four-year adventure, which has included winning the Danish Melodi Grand Prix as well as a unique collaboration with our dear friends at Call me, with whom we have been fighting for a good cause – a better and more compassionate society.
What started out as an idea and a vision four years ago evolved into a fantastic project, which has shown completely new ways of how the worlds of culture and business can collaborate and take on an active role in society as ambassadors of positive change. We have felt a little bit like the bumblebee that shouldn’t be able to fly – but, wow, how high we managed to fly after all. It is both beautiful, inspiring and deeply meaningful to us to be able to think back on everything we have created and experienced together. A lot of it we would never have been able to achieve without the impressive support from fans and supporters, both in Denmark and internationally. Our hearts are full of gratitude for your support.
With Lighthouse X we have achieved more than we ever dared to dream that we could. The last four years have been an incredibly amazing journey for us, during which we have performed in front of a countless number of people, listened to their stories and done everything we could to make a positive change in the world. All along, we have been side by side with a passionate team at Call me, the fourth member of Lighthouse X. That was our mission when we founded the band in 2012, and we have accomplished it.
Lighthouse X has always been a project with a limited lifespan, and all three of us agree that Copenhagen Pride, with its focus on diversity and freedom of speech, is the ideal occasion for shutting down Lighthouse X for now. So we are going to stop while the going is good – really good, even! – and we are looking forward to saying ‘until next time’ to all of you, our supporters, who have followed us and supported us, and we hope to see all of you on August 17th.
As we are writing these words, deep love and gratitude are flowing through us. The many messages and mails we have received from you over the years, and all the conversations we have had with several of you around the country, tell us that there is, indeed, an army of soldiers of love out there. We are proud to have walked side by side with you. THANK YOU for everything we have experienced together. You have given us memories for life!
