My yearly pilgrimage to Le Guess Who? continues again (after sadly skipping a year in 2017). Le Guess Who? is a city wide celebration of sound and art in the city of Utrecht, The Netherlands. From 8th – 11th November, the city of Utrecht becomes the center for musical exploration. During four days, Le Guess Who? takes over the city center of Utrecht with over 150 performances set to electrify pop venues, theaters, churches, galleries and warehouses. Satellite events with music, film, visual art, photography and markets appear at cafés, hotels, restaurants, wharf cellars, de Neude square and the hidden corners of the city.
Le Guess Who? focuses on artists that feel the urge to explore and expand the boundaries of certain genres. The festival features non-western sounds, jazz, folk, ambient, drone, avant-garde, modern composed, as well as contemporary pop and rock culture, and many blended forms of these genres.
Curators for this year are Devendra Banhart, Moor Mother & Shabaka Hutchings.
