You might remember some time last year when we shared our experience of Outlook Festival with you. Well, we’ve kept true to our word and the event has become a permanent fixture in our calendar. You can also reminiscence with us about the 2017 highlights and The Outlook Orchestra too.
Fresh from an almighty tenth edition that united thousands of bass lovers in it’s fortress home, Outlook Festival has revealed the first set of artists joining for 2018. Continuing its mission to champion the next generation of talent whilst celebrating revered heritage acts, this outing is as diverse and dynamic as ever.
Eleven years deep, Outlook has earned its reputation as the world’s leading bass party with the highest calibre of artists. Across four heavy days, impressive shows are lined up from the UK’s golden boy; J Hus, the Mercury Prize nominated East London rapper whose addictive mix of rap and afrobeat has made him a household name. Then there’s ‘Queen of the Dancehall’ Stefflon Don, set to impress with her wicked wordplay, natural finesse and bars about female empowerment and street life. Don’t miss Outlook favourite, almighty selector David Rodigan, who’ll bring his blend of jungle, dub, reggae and more, alongside Bonobo’s uplifting blend of live electronica. Man of the moment, Kojey Radical captivates with raw, political sounds, plus Children of Zeus present soulful hip-hop.
Using only the highest spec of sound systems Outlook Festival is a playground for audiophiles, making it the ultimate place for bass. And there’s plenty of it! Making a welcome return is the leading lady of bass explorations, Madam X, alongside Swamp81 bossman Loefah, and Jubilee who’ll bring hi-energy, colourful club sounds to the table.
Starting proceedings on September 5th, the iconic Opening Concert returns to Pula’s Amphitheatre, with Bonobo live, a fully-charged performance celebrating Sir David Rodigan’s 40 years in the business by our very own Outlook Orchestra, plus the godfather Wiley and Children of Zeus. All performing in a breathtaking 2,000 year old Roman Ampitheatre.
Set in an abandoned fortress on the Adriatic coast, Outlook Festival finds its home in one of the most stunning settings in Croatia. Outlook blurs festival boundaries as visitors jump from chilling on the beach by day, to dancing deep into the early hours. With high spec sound, the festival is an event that prides itself on a deeply rooted appreciation of sound quality and design. Tickets sell fast, so customers are advised to purchase early.
