The Utrecht festival has finalized its program for 2019.

Not Waving & Dark Mark, Deerhoof and Aldous Harding are among the last acts to be confirmed for the 2019 edition of Le Guess Who?, Utrecht’s foremost experimental arts and music festival.

This year’s instalment will also see the premiere of a new collaboration between Nicolas Jaar and Patrick Higgins. Named after a mythical Greek island, AEAEA sees the artists “using computer processes to resample and reprocess
each other’s instruments in real time” in an immersive electro-acoustic performance.

They will join previously announced acts such as Holly Herndon, Jenny Hval, Godflesh, Nivhek and Amnesia Scanner for a stacked lineup featuring specially curated programs from Jenny Hval, The Bug, Fatoumata Diawara, Patrick Higgins, Moon Duo and Iris van Herpen & Salvador Breed. Check out the final list of acts below.

Le Guess Who? 2019 takes place from November 7 to November 10 at various venues across Utrecht. Festival passes and individual day tickets are available now. Head over to their website for more information.
