Smukfest has, in fact, earlier in the day unveiled a string of new names in the british pop band Years & Years are in the lead.
But it is far from all who are satisfied with the festival program so far.
On the social media tipping it in with messages from the festival guests, who are thoroughly disappointed in the names, as Smukfest has lured to the beech woods.
'no, no, No. Poor program so far', writes a man.
'TBA (to be announced, ed.) must dælme be wild in order to save the music program. Hard to see where the extra money for the music program has disappeared', writes one woman, while a third continues:
'What a lorteprogram in the year. And that comes only two TBA. Simply too paltry.'
however, There is also more that in the social media, expressed that they are satisfied with the Smukfests program.

Ekstra a music critic Thomas Treo, agrees with the criticism from the many disappointed danes.
- It is an obscene call program thus far. Even for Smukfests standard. I can't remember having seen a big Danish artist of the poster with so many bland names. Smukfest has, once again, the summer's most expensive ticket and, apparently, the worst program. The headliner is the closest to the TBA. The organizers need to really pull something spectacular if they are to save the honour, the opposite of 28.000 guests who bought the ticket before the names were revealed.

At Smukfest takes the dog to the criticism with dignified calm. According to Poul Martin Bonde are well satisfied with the program they have put together so far.
- We are accustomed to the fact that there are mixed messages, and that there are different attitudes to our names. There are many who express that they think it is a good program, but of course there are also some who think something else. But we are not so much for the criticism, before we have published the final program. There are still missing a few headliners and 30 to 40 other music acts, says the chief communications officer, Poul Martin Bonde.
And when it is said and done, so is our festival, of course, also much more than just music. There are also many other offers, such as comedy and talkscene, " says Poul Martin Bonde, who also tells that the entire program will be published during the month of may.
He fears not, therefore, to Smukfest 2019 will be a flop.
- I think we have some really good names on the program, and there are many more names yet. We are trying to put the program such that we hit a wide taste, and it seems that we have succeeded with. If you are very disappointed, have always the opportunity to put his ticket up for sale again. It can be done safely via our videresalgsmuligheder in the shop, and there are already many on the waiting list, he says.
- But I would really like to relate more to the criticism in may, when our entire program has been published, he stresses.
