STIKSTOF is the brainchild of Jazz , Pregnant Guy and Astrofisiks, accompanied live by accompanied byDj Vega. Since 2010, they have been giving a face to the Brussels rap scene and rap scene and bring their lyrics from the squares to the living room.

In no time at all, Sylvie Kreusch has become a colourful and mystical artist who is breaking pots on a European level. Her expressive performances and exciting mix of pop and alternative sounds brought her work to the attention of leading media such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, Beats One and Dazed. And we noticed it too. So we’re giving her a spot on our stage on 15 July!

Smerz are the Norwegian duo of Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg. Known for the “carefully shaped, deconstructed pop” (Boomkat) of their debut EP’s Okey (2017) and Have Fun (2018), Smerz seamlessly weave together techniques and sounds pulled from chamber and classical music, hip hop, R&B, and hard electronics, with the end product always resulting in something altogether uncanny.

In their relatively short career, Kae Tempest has already picked up two nominations for the Mercury Prize – Britain’s leading music award. As many as Oasis, The xx and alt-J. Okay, in an ideal world, they would have cashed in on those nominations too, but admit it, that’s not bad for a quirky rapper from a London suburb who spends half her time doing literature, theatre – Guy Cassiers based his play Tiresias on one of their lyrics – and poetry. It will therefore not surprise anyone that Tempest brings a mix of hip-hop and spoken word, but what should be surprising is that they even influenced Jay-Z with it.
