We The Fest 2018 has revealed phase two of the lineup and it’s sure to pander especially to R&B and electronic fans.
The Jakarta music and art festival is returning in its fifth year on Friday-Sunday, July 20-22 at JIExpo Kemayoran. It has previously announced Lorde, James Bay, alt-J, Odesza and The Neighbourhood as headliners.
Added to the top of the bill is Australia’s acclaimed electronica artist and ARIA winner Nick Murphy, who is now building similar considerable momentum with his new project as he did as Chet Faker.
Joining HONNE, Petit Biscuit, Moon Boots and Louis The Child are Sydney trap heavyweight What So Not, British prodigal producer SG Lewis, future bass act Medasin, as well as R&B duo and Drake protégés Majid Jordan.
American singer-songwriter and The Strokes’ lead guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr caps off the international additions. Fans can look forward to his infectious indie folk crossover sound from his latest solo effort, Francis Trouble.
Barasuara, Efek Rumah Kaca, Padi Reborn, and White Shoes & The Couple’s Company are new to the local roster that already includes Seringai, Maliq & D’Essentials, Semenjana, Tez Sumandra, and Mooner.
This year We The Fest is also seeking new local talent to perform on the coveted stage via the “Submit Your Music” contest. Head to the festival’s website for more information.
