Different Class 2017 line-up

To enter this year’s edition of the festival you’ll need to become a member – at the door or in advance. Because we would like you to enjoy the rest of our Summer programme as well and share everything else we offer our members. We told you this year’s edition is gonna be pretty sweet! We didn’t break our promise – we never do. We’re more than happy to share this incredible list of artists who will perform on 26 August at 019 in Ghent.

The line-up for Different Class 2017 is…

GAIKA

GAIKA_SUBBACULTCHA_SHOT07_051-min

This Brixton-born underground artist makes a mix of dancehall, R&B, grime and hip hop with the ferocity of a robot and the dark aestheticism of artists like Mykki Blanco, with whom he collaborated last year. He’s a fan of FKA Twigs, Tricky and the Melvins, and generates music equally unfit for definition.

Marching Church

Iceage frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s solo-to-full-band-project Marching Church is a reincarnation of the early Birthday Party infused with the kitsch of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Last Shadow Puppets.

Kedr Livanskiy

000027280005-min

Her artist name meaning Lebanese Cedar, her real name being Yana Kedrina, Kedr Livanskiy makes airy and melancholic dance-poptunes inspired by MTV and artists like Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada.

SMIB

There’s a group of independent creators turning heads in Amsterdam: SMIB Worldwide. They’re an industrious collective dropping EPs, mixtapes, merchandise and clothing lines – all without breaking a sweat. They riled up devoted crowds at Appelsap festival and have become an act you can’t miss live or online.

We’ll add the dj’s and 1 more band in the upcoming weeks.
