If you like venturing to warmer, more beige parts of the globe where the sea is clearer and DUE TO THE SOUNDSYSTEMS I CAN BARELY HEAR YA – Outlook Festival 2018 is a shout.
We were lucky enough to be there last summer where, through rain and shine, we saw some of the most exciting British talent in sound system culture and more. With hip-hop from the likes of Yogocop Records, High Focus, Loyle Carner and Jehst, plus all sorts of drum and bass artists to shake your diaphragm, all bases and all stages were covered in good music.
But few stages were more compelling than the opening night, where a healthy helping of the festivals biggest acts graces the nearby town of Pula’s amphitheatre for one night only. The scenic, historic setting could genuinely give Rome’s Colosseum a run for its lira, especially when the likes of Dizzee Rascal and the Newham Gens are shelling down inside it.
Far more tranquil artists are amongst the first additions to the line-up this year as two Offie Mag favourites in Brighton-based legend, Bonobo and Manchester up and comers, Children of Zeus have been announced. It seems early, but with ticket prices set to go up, you could do worse than to cop an Outlook ticket early.
