Le Guess Who has also announced some special performances: Seefeel will perform Quique in full for its 25th anniversary; Ryley Walker will team with Tokyo’s Kikagaku Moyo for an improvisational performance they’re calling ‘Deep Fried Grandeur’; and Yonatan Gat will collaborate with Native American drum group The Eastern Medicine Singers. Check out the full final Le Guess Who 2018 lineup announcement below.
The 2018 Le Guess Who? Festival happens November 8-11 and previously announced performers include Art Ensemble of Chicago, Devendra Banhart, The Breeders, Sons of Kemet, Serpentwithfeet, Colin Stetson, Circuit des Yeux, Saul Williams & King Britt, Future Feminism (ft. Kembra Pfahler, Anohni and Johanna Constantine) and more. Tickets are on sale.
Asia Argento was to have been one of the festival’s 2018 special curators but dropped off after sexual assault allegations. Most of the performers under her curation (like Escape-Ism, Future Feminism, and Joe Coleman) are still on the lineup, though Rose McGowan is no longer listed.
