The fourth instalment of VISIONS is pleased to announce its first music acts. The festival will welcome Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers – making a welcome return to the capital as one of the festival closers. Joining them is another Mercury-nominated act, singer-songwriter sensation Anna Calvi.
VISIONS is also delighted to host Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, plus a handful of talented US acts including rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco, noise rock duo Lightning Bolt and the visceral New York hardcore band Show Me The Body.
Back to the UK talent, we’re excited to announce a special appearance from Gengahr following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘A Dream Outside’ last year, alongside hotly tipped five-piece indie-pop outfit Pumarosa.
Newcomer and 19-year-old London based artist The Japanese House is also set to bring her ambient synth-pop to the festival. Elsewhere, rising grime star Elf Kid joins the bill, with London-via-Berlin drone rock band Ulrika Spacek and art-rave project Drones Club all set to perform. Many more acts are still be announced in the coming weeks.
Music isn’t the only offering from VISIONS. The festival will also be host to exhibitions and installations from local artists, a special Street Food festival, other one-off market stalls and other extra attractions.
