Dour Festival 2013: Hip Hop Part II
We can pretty much already hear you chanting "Wu-Tang Clan! Wu-Tang Clan!": the group have confirmed their one and only visit to Belgium this summer to celebrate their 20th anniversary and new album launch, currently planned for August. Also added the Boombox and Last Arena line-ups are Keny Arkana, spitting venom from his new opus Tout Tourne Autour Du Soleil ('Everything revolves around the sun'), and the ingenious La Coka Nostra. Joining them is one of the sensations of 2013, Riff Raff, who will take the time (we hope!) to join Action Bronson for their hit Born on a wire. An unfortunate cancellation from last year, BadBadNotGood will also be making up for missing out last year this time around!
Dour Festival 2013: New Hip Hop Names
We're cramming LeFtO's booth with three new names - the Austalian Hiatus Kaiyote, the incredible Flume, and LeFtO himself will playing alongside Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson, Robert Glasper Experiment, Oddisee & Live Band and Flying Lotus.
These amazing artists join the already announced IAM, Psy4 de la Rime, Youssoupha, Scratch Bandits Crew, Odezenne, Mykki Blanco, Zebra Katz, Iggy Azalea, Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, Wax Tailor, Tha Trickaz, Gramatik, Deluxe and many many more for the 25th Dour Festival , which thanks in part to the new Boombox stage could well be staging one of the best hip-hop and urban line-ups of the summer.
And there's still more to come!
