M.I.A, Earl Sweatshirt en 36 new additions to complete the line up!
For the 29th edition of the festival, Dour did its utter best to compile a broad and divers line up, combining tremendous headliners, discoveries, traditions and a huge diversity. Dour Festival opts for an open, daring and alternative programmation, a line up you’ll only see once a year, in one spot. During 5 days, Dour becomes a melting pot of artists, a place where rockers meet drum’n’bass loves, where reggae-adepts meet hiphoppers. A truly amazing atmosphere, almost a way of life. Dour constantly reinvents itself, with one purpose: to offer you the best festival you’ve ever been to.
Let’s start with an artist that breathes the spirit of the festival, not in the least by constantly innovating and operating at the edges of musical genres. We’re very pleased to welcome M.I.A., she will headline on our opening day: Wednesday July 12.
More powerful women with the english Little Simz and rising star Jessie Reyez. The classy and melancholic Earl Sweatshirt will also perform at the festival.
There is a lot of french rap this year. The already strong line up is completed by Alkpote, Josman and Swiss DI-MEH and Slimka.
For those who like their music a bit more rocky, we present Temples and the theatrical australian Alex Cameron. From the theater, we go straight to the movies, with Carpenter Brut who will emerge us in an 80s B-Film soundtrack. The sensual Marie Davidson will also be present.
Let’s dance! With the catchy rhythms of Stwo, Snakehips and Romare Full Live Band, or the funky treasures by Dutch DJ Antal, afrobeat by Throes + The Shine or the massive beats by Binkbeats, Blanck Mass and Surgeon Hardware live.
More electro with Hucci’s trap, blazing sounds by Malaa, the crazy fury that is Miss K8 or the joyful bunch of Casual Gabberz. For those who like it a bit heavier: Manu Le Malin (almost a resident of the festival) and Darktek will take care of you.
A heavy last drum’n’bass announcement: the collective with DC Breaks x Loadstar x Mind Vortex feat. Daxta MC and Teddy Killerz.
To round up this very last announcement, we have a dozen of dub- and reggae artists: Manudigital + Beenie Man are playing a rare festival performance, Dub Addict, the legendary King Earthquake and Omar Perry, who are invited by Reggaebus Soundsystem. Furthermore: Roger Robinson, accompanied by disrupt, Pilah, LMK, Khoe-wa Dub System, Krak In Dub and Mo’Kalamity, also invited by Reggaebus Soundsystem.
