You must know us by now, always on the lookout for the next deal! So this is it: no more separate Different Class tickets, the only way you’ll get to enter the festival this year will be as a Subbacultcha member. Everyone can join our low-key cult; a monthly dose of Subbacultcha comes highly recommended by our members and their doctors.
There’s a group of independent creators turning heads in Amsterdam: SMIB Worldwide. They’re an industrious collective dropping EPs, mixtapes, merchandise and clothing lines — all without breaking a sweat. They riled up devoted crowds at Appelsap festival and have become an act you can’t miss live or online.
This Brixton-born underground artist makes a mix of dancehall, R&B, grime and hip hop with the ferocity of a robot and the dark aestheticism of artists like Mykki Blanco, with whom he collaborated last year. He’s a fan of FKA Twigs, Tricky and the Melvins, and generates music equally unfit for definition. First Belgian show!
MARCHING CHURCH (DK)
Iceage frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s solo-to-full-band-project Marching Church is a reincarnation of the early Birthday Party infused with the kitsch of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Last Shadow Puppets.
KEDR LIVANSKIY (RU)
Her artist name meaning Lebanese Cedar, her real name being Yana Kedrina, Kedr Livanskiy makes airy and melancholic dance-poptunes inspired by MTV and artists like Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada. First Belgian show!
