Outlook Festival has already announced two waves of artists (in February and March) that will appear on its stages in September. Madlib, Run The Jewels, Pete Rock, Jurassic 5, J Rocc, Jeru The Damaja, The Beatnuts, Flatbush Zombies, High Focus Records, Rodney P and Skitz have all been confirmed and that’s just on the hip hop front. To be honest, we thought the last announcement was the sum of all the artists that were going to appear but clearly the Outlook team had other ideas. In addition to the above names there will also be the likes of Wiley, Boy Better Know and a lot more that you can see below.
This final announcement added a live set by SBTRKT to the opening concert in Pula’s historic 2000 year old amphitheatre. That will definitely not be one to miss, expect an interesting mix of traditional percussion as well as electronic instruments. Keeping the influence of Caribbean sound system culture alive at the festival, this year Beenie Man will make an appearance as well regulars The Heatwave. Drum and bass veteran DJ Hype will be rocking the crowd on the Croatian coast. Digital Mystikz will be celebrating their 10th birthday with a takeover at The Clearing stage and lastly one of our favourite party DJs Oneman will also be playing his creative mix of genres. A little additional surprise was the fact UK hip hop group The Mouse Outfit will also be performing and we’re certainly going to catch those guys. With all these incredible artists and DJs performing, we will inevitably have to face the dilemma of set time clashes but who will you not miss under any circumstances? Let us know in the comments and if you’re thinking of attending make sure you buy your tickets from here to support Rhyme On Beat.
