Le Guess Who 2018

First announcements due to be made public today I think. Couple of interesting curators. I didn’t think the lineup hit its stride until the second (larger) batch of announcements last year though and the same will probably be the case this time round for most people I think.

Anyone going? I’m definitely planning on doing so. Probably the best festival I’ve been to all things considered (though the Ethiopian food and mojitos you could get in the main venue were a big part of that).

I will likely be going. Ah who am I kidding, I’ll definitely be going.

Got an early bird ticket last year m8, such a good festival/city!

clashes with Sonic City again :frowning:
gonna wait and see who’s curating that this year before I take the leap

Got a hotel sorted but not got the ticket. Should probably sort that today

Considering it, but want to see the line-up first before deciding.

Been meaning to go for years now… so I booked a bed in a very central hostel last week. If it even has half the amount of artists that I wanted to see last year I’ll be happy!

From the teaser video I reckon there’ll be Teklife DJs or Jlin for the ‘Rapid Fire Chicago Footwork’ and Islam Chipsy for ‘Hyperactive Keyboard Mashing’

At least ONE of those is correct.

c u there

Not the most inspiring for me but I’ve not heard loads. Hopefully the Spotify playlist is up soon!

Pretty happy with that so far tbh. Not overly familiar or into the curators but they’ve picked some good stuff so no problems

That line up is really good!


neither more or less excited than before I saw the line-up

Might not be the most out there choice, but Oliver Coates is decent live
