Already 136 names on the line up!
For weeks we’re announcing new names, and we’re not even near the end of the list. We already have some pretty hot headliners on the bill (Die Antwoord, Phoenix, Metronomy, Justice, NAS, Nina Kraviz, PNL, The Kills, Noisia, Two Door Cinema Club, Kaaris & Kalash Criminel, Carl Craig presents Versus Synthesizer Ensemble, Pusha T, Solomun, Jon Hopkins dj set,…), but here are 35 new additions.
Let’s start of with the divine Solange – sister of you-know-who. With “A Seat at the Table” she released one of the best albums of the year. She confirmed her status of soul diva 2.0. Live at our festival on July 13!
We have some more soul for you, with the renowned Lee Fields, who’ll once more charm the festival with his natural class and The Expressions. United Kingdom brings us a fresh batch of talent with Young Fathers, heavy post punk quintet IDLES and the psychedelic dream team The Moonlandingz.
A bit more to the west: Brasil! Metá Metá brings a baffling mix of afrobeat, punk and Paulista music. Closer to home, the German techno marching band Meute, the French retro pop duo Agar Agar, the heavy rock of Cheveu, Saharian musicians of Group Doueh and the modular magic of Monolithe Noir.
Let’s talk hip hop! We’re very glad to welcome De La Soul + live band, who has a very long relationship with the festival. In 1991, we were one of the first festivals to book a rap act at a music festival.
Also, the new generation of American hip hoppers will be present: $uicideboy$, Soulection presents Joe Kay b2b The Whooligan who will play the stage of our curator Lefto! French rap is representing with Prince Waly and Bon Gamin (Ichon, Myth Syzer, Loveni).
Another legend! This time the pioneer of Chicago house Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers Live, but also Squarepusher’s side project Sholaleader One, the avant-gardist shaman The Gaslamp Killer and the volcanic sounds of Icelandic Kiasmos dj set.
To reinforce the party, we also have Machinedrum live, Lone live, Overmono live and French 79.
At Dour, we like to see ourselves as pioneers, but that doesn’t mean we forget our old friends: Wax Tailor, Stand High Patrol and Panda Dub will make the festival ground tremble once again.
Let’s wrap this up with some nice drum’n’bass additions: Friction, Camo & Krooked, DJ Hazard b2b DJ Hype, DJ Guv, Technimatic, DkA, One87 & Mc Mush and Murdock!
