With great joy Dour Festival finds the super group L’ENTOURAGE, composed by members from 1995 and $-Crew. It’s key figure is no less than NEKFEU, which accompanies us the entire weekend because of his solo performance on Sunday 15th of July. They return to Dour Festival and they are bringing an exclusive show in Belgium. For its 30th edition, Dour has another exclusive show ready for you. The project GANGUE, put together in collaboration with the French festivals Marsatac and Nördik Impakt (both celebrating their 20th edition). The idea was pretty simple: a project with 3 artists, each representing the territory of one of the events. The participating producers are Haring, La Fine Equipe and Fulgeance.
Dour Festival is honoured to welcome another great band, this time representing jazz. R+R=NOW is the collaboration around pianist Robert Glasper and the worldwide recognized musicians Taylor McFerrin, Derrick Hodge, Justin Tyson, Christian Scott and Terrace Martin. Next to that you’ll find a number of exciting American hip-hoppers. Starting with the king, DJ PREMIER, many consider him to be one of the best producers of all time. We also present you 3 brilliant rookies: ILOVEMAKONNEN from Atlanta, SKI MASK and the Californian LIL XAN.
We can’t leave behind the Belgian hip-hop of course. STIKSTOF broke down the Ancienne Belgique earlier this week. You’ll also find ISHA, L’OR DU COMMUN, KRISY, LA SMALA and LE 77. Obviously we shouldn’t forget about the godfather of the scene and hip-hop curator of the festival, LEFTO. Like every year he is hosting an entire day at the Boombox.
Also joining the Dour Festival line up are a bunch of brilliant projects worldwide, like the South African BCUC, the Munich-based duo SCHLACHTHOFBRONX, the Argentinean NATHY PELUSO and the English AJ TRACEY and BENJI B, the Canadian duo KEYS N KRATES and the reunion of the 2 Dutchmen JARREAU X FULL CRATE. Last but not least Dour welcomes the 2 French projects KANKA and a favorite among the festivalgoers, FAKEAR from Caen.
