Dour Festival 2013: French Scene
The French music scene will have strong representation at the 25th Dour Festival ! IAM, the legendary French rap group, will be back at Dour to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary. It will be their only date in Belgium. The Marseille bad boys will appear on the Last Arena on Sunday 21st July with tracks from their latest album, out in April.
Dour Festival 2013: Brand New StageHistorically, we have always given exposure to hip-hop, dub, trip hop and electro-swing in the Magic Soundsystem at Dour Festival, but this year we are going one step further and giving these genres their very own home: THE BOOMBOX!
And as with all good baptisms, this one will require some godparents. That's why we've chosen the very best: Oddisee will be representing east coast hip-hop with his album 'People Hear What They See', out on Mello Music Group. The DJ/producer Gramatik will be showing us how they say 'hip-hop' in Slovenia, and Youssoupha, the French MC of Congolese origin, will be performing some of his 'take-no-prisoners' rap. On the more electro side of things, Wax Tailor will be playing tracks from his latest album 'Dusty Rainbow From The Dark', and Tha Trickaz will be provide us with a rich tapestry of fat beats, dirty scratches, and classic samples.
More confirmations will be made in the coming days.
