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 Saturday, November 11, the lineup includes a new a/v performance by Egyptian producer & DJ ZULI in collaboration with audiovisual artist Omar El Sadek; Kamilya Jubran, whose multidisciplinary work makes her one of the most respected artists on the Arab alternative music scene; the sound worlds of Kenyan composer and sound artist Nyokabi Kariũki; British electronic artist James Holden; emerging avant-garde sound artist Damsel Elysium, who has previously collaborated with FKA Twigs, Celeste and the London Contemporary Orchestra, among others; The Good Ones, a Rwandan band formed as a post-genocide healing process in which the original members reunited the Rwandan Tutsi, Hutu and Abatwa tribes; and explosive New York rap duo Armand Hammer consisting of ELUCID and billy woods.
