Jenny Hval and The Bug to curate Le Guess Who? line-up

Jenny Hval

The Utrecht festival has announced the curators for its upcoming edition.

Each year, Le Guess Who? enlists a roster of agenda-setting artists to guest curate its line-up. For the festival’s upcoming edition, award-winning Norwegian artist Jenny Hval steps up as a curator, along with The Bug, otherwise known as Kevin Martin. Avant-garde fashion designer Iris van Herpen will team up with sound designer Salvador Breed as joint curators, and other sections of the festival programme will be helmed by composer and producer Patrick Higgins, Malian singer-songwriter and Grammy Award nominee Fatoumara Diawara, and psych outfit Moon Duo.

All curators, with the exception of Iris van Herpen and Salvador Breed, will perform at the event.

Last year, former Crack Magazine cover star Shabaka Hutchings curated the programme, along with Moor Mother, Asia Argento and Devendra Banhart.

Le Guess Who? returns to Utrecht, The Netherlands, on 7-10 November 2019. Four-day passes can be purchased via the festival’s website.
