As we count down to the star-studded We The Fest 2018 next month, the Jakarta festival today added 21 more international and local names to its lineup.
We The Fest 2018 is returning in its fifth year on Friday-Sunday, July 20-22 at JIExpo Kemayoran.
Roped in to the top of the bill are LA singer-songwriter Miguel, Grammy-nominated songstress SZA and East Coast rapper Vince Staples. The three will be joining the previously announced Majid Jordan and Nick Murphy in conquering the crowd with their blend of upbeat contemporary R&B and soul.
The electronic scene will be served up by Australian DJ and producer Basenji who will be filling Jakarta’s summer breeze with hot, thumping beats alongside Party Favor.
The festival also welcomes Singapore’s indie favourite The Sam Willows, Malaysia’s up-and-coming four-piece Midnight Fusic and the only K-pop star in the roster, Eric Nam.
