Staged in the bustling heart of Utrecht, the annual Le Guess Who? festival returned this month.

In true Le Guess Who? (LGW?) style, the event handed curatorial duties over to a handful of artists and music-makers around the world and varying scenes, with Heba Kadry, Nala Sinephro, Slauson Malone 1 and Stereolab tapped as guest curators for this year’s proceedings. These curators also performed at the festival, where the likes of Moin, MC Yallah, Deena Abdelwahed, Special Interest and Tirzah were among those touching down for weekend of exploration – musical, and otherwise – in the charming Dutch city.
