This year, Quest’s lineup will represent a range of styles from hip hop and soul through to metal and indie rock. The diversity continues through the first announcement of electronic music, spanning from deep house and techno through to psychedelic trance and ground shaking bass.

Leading the bill are Berlin synth-pop trio Say Yes Dog, Detroit soul quintet Windstar Soul and French D&B duo Iphaze. They will be joined by prog-rock band Squid Eye, cross-cultural hip-hop groups Saigon Dub Station, Hazard Clique, and New Fame, whose funk and grime will be gingered up by Australia’s own DJ Soup.
