The first #DC19 name

5 more months before Different Class is upon us again and we’re thrilled to share the very first name of our 2019 lineup with you. It’s a beauty!

They’re back, baby! After their first Belgian show with us back in 2017 FAKA was eager to return and perform again for you guys. A denied visa interfered with our beautiful plan to have them turn S.M.A.K. upside down and inside out last year, but they promised to make it up to us and you so here we are: FAKA is the first name for Different Class 2019!

If you’re not familiar with them yet, here’s the deal: FAKA stands for a performance art duo turned cultural movement hailing from Johannesburg. They express themselves through multiple media with the central theme being black queer bodies navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa. Their mesmerising music features insanely danceable Afro-electronic beats that leave no one unaffected. Be ready to whine your hips and get down!
