Le Guess Who? will soon return to Utrecht for its 16th edition, set to take place from 9-12 November.

Today (12 September), the festival has finalised the schedule for the upcoming event, which will feature programmes curated by Heba Kadry, Nala Sinephro, Slauson Malone 1 and Stereolab. Low’s Alan Sparhawk, Lost Girls, W.I.T.C.H. and ESG have been announced. As have Bala Desejo, Caterina Barbieri and Space Afrika, with Barbieri and Manchester-born duo Space Afrika tapped for a collaborative show with visuals from Marcel Weber (MFO).

Elsewhere, a number more artist and collective-presented programmes have been confirmed, hosted by re:ni, Rotterdam-based DJ collective AMPFEMININE, Cami Layé Okún, and U?. re:ni’s programme features the likes of SHERELLE, DJ Stingray 313 and Lee Gamble, while Tayhana and Soft Break will play the AMPFEMININE proceedings.

Earlier this year, Le Guess Who? announced a new performance format for its next edition. The concept, The Anonymous Project, is focused on artist anonymity. Before, during and after performances, artist identities will be concealed from audiences as they perform on stage within a cube structure, with specially commissioned scenography placed throughout the environment for the experience.
