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 Sunday, November 12, the lineup includes the Caribbean-Belgian composer, producer and musician Nala Sinephro; French multidisciplinary artist and producer Crystallmess; Nok Cultural Ensemble, the new collective of Nigerian-British musician Edward Wakili-Hick (Sons of Kemet, Steam Down, Kokoroko); the Anglo-French avant-pop group Stereolab hailed as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic bands of the 1990s; and Faiz Ali Faiz, who was born into seven successive generations of qawwalis (who perform the ancient form of religious Sufi music from Pakistan and northern India) and has since become a qawwali sensation in his own right, thanks to his wide range and spirited vocals.
