A celebration of sound
Titled “A Celebration of Sound,” Le Guess Who? is considered one of the most progressive festivals in the world. Le Guess Who? is all about groundbreaking sounds that you won’t hear much, if at all, in other places, but that offer new perspectives on what is possible within music.
Le Guess Who? returns to Utrecht from November 9-12, 2023 for its sixteenth festival edition. For four days, Le Guess Who? will take over the city with shows by more than 150 artists performing in pop halls, theaters, churches, wharf cellars and clubs.
On Friday, November 10, the program includes. Tunisian DJ Deena Abdelwahed presenting her new album Jbal Rrsas; Pankisi Ensemble, a traditional women’s music group from Georgia focused on preserving and developing lesser-known genres of Chechen music rarely heard outside their own community; Rắn Cạp Đuôi Collective, standard-bearers in the field of experimental music in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Nine Inch Nails band member Alessandro Cortini, who is a major influence within contemporary experimental electronic music; 24-year-old, up-and-coming New York rapper MIKE; Zambian-Canadian rapper/producer and Polaris Music Prize winner Backxwash, whose work is a fusion of horrorcore, hip-hop and industrial; and multidisciplinary artist Ebun Sodipo, who creates work for the Black transgender people of the future.
