From the 10th to the 14th of July, beneath the windmills of Dour, we promise you 5 days of love and alternative music. This thanks to a unique and eclectic line-up that we continue to complete today with a new headliner on the Last Arena: the godfather of electro swing PAROV STELAR, a true machine that can make every crowd dance.
The Canadian REZZ, boss of the Bass Music is taking the lead for the first time on the Red Bull Elektropedia Balzaal. Saturday we are adding SaSaSaS, a true guerilla army incinerating the jungle of drum’n’bass in the UK.
In ‘la Petite Maison dans la Prairie’ we are proud to announce the live show of APPARAT. The Berlin based solo producer and dancefloor killer will be performing for the first time at Dour, just like the Californian geniuses THE INTERNET, who are among the most exciting hip-hop artists of the last decade.
On the indie side of the line-up, for those who would need more guitars, we are adding FONTAINES D.C., one of the most promising prospects on the Irish scene, the gifted GUS DAPPERTON from New York or even JIMOTHY also known as the latest razor sharp blade from the rap scene in Camden, the golden R&B of AMA LOU, the shiny and noisy HOT SNAKES, the pop of BOY PABLO, the deliciously wild and angry post punk coming from the VIAGRA BOYS and the project NAMDOSE, who is reuniting the trio BRNS from Brussels and the French duo Ropoporose.
