5 new hip-hop artists join the line-up of Dour Festival.
The Dour festival line-up is massive already. But even if we say so ourselves, we still have a lot of surprises up our sleeves.
You will need to show patience till next Thursday to discover the new indie acts and more guitars. New electro announcements that should delight everyone are scheduled a few days later.
Today, we are happy to confirm 5 new hip-hop artists that we really like!
Starting with the inevitable Jay Rock, a pure product of the L.A. rap game. Recently he won the Grammy Award for best rap performance with his song “King’s Dead”, which he rapped alongside Kendrick Lamar, Future and James Blake.
Let’s continue with our national Flemish rap mastermind, Zwangere Guy. This year he’s back solo and he is taking along his latest album Wie is Guy?. He sold out two concerts at the “Ancienne Belgique” in Brussels. He makes every show unique! Get ready for his comeback at Dour Festival !
It is also a pleasure to welcome the Estonian rap phenomenon: Tommy Cash. A renowned dancer, unconventional videographer (go have a look at the stunning video of “Winaloto”), alien performer and inspired conceptual artist. He is going to show off his second album ¥€$ this summer.
Next is the French MC Dinos whose first album, called Imany, was highly praised. The rapper enjoys revealing the poetry hidden in the city’s concrete through references to Baudelaire and to the ancestral French culture.
Finally, come and discover Moka Boka. The young talent from Brussels is settling himself on the tip of his toes very successfully in the Belgian urban landscape. On stage, he’s making gems of rap and R&B out of his wisdom. He assembled them on a first album entitled “Pas de pluie, pas de fleurs”.
