This lineup wasn’t a hard guess, having seen We The Fest’s, but we’re hyped all the same: Lorde tops the bill, with alt-J, Odesza, The Neighbourhood and Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker) following behind.
Also billed are neo-soul and electronic favourites HONNE, Petit Biscuit, Louis The Child, Majid Jordan, SG Lewis, and What So Not. Pastel Lite, Bil Musa, Kyoto Protocol and Dangerdisko are some of the names confirmed for the local roster.
This year the festival is turning the spotlight on Kuala Lumpur-based music collectives to showcase their talents: SaturdaySelects will be presenting Dan $hiv, DJ Nesh, A-Kid, and Mass Music while Raising The Bar ropes in hip-hop talent like Reddi Rocket and Lionel Rizki.
