With great pleasure, we announce the first batch of names for REC. festival. With performances of Joey Bada$$, Banks, BADBADNOTGOOD, Cassius, !!! (chkchkchk), Acid Arab en Saba, amongst many more to be announced, REC. Volume 2 delivers the promise to transcend last year’s edition.
This years line-up offers an even more broad and paradoxical scope at today’s finest in leftfield music. NYC based and politically engaged rapper Joey Bada$$ will play the same stage as Californian dream-pop singer Banks. Canadian wonderkids BADBADNOTGOOD present an energetic blend of Jazz and Hip-hop, whereas cultband !!! (chkchkchk) will make the stage shake with its unique brand of dance-punk. French duo Cassius scored many hits in the early 2000’s, but is far from finished. Colin Benders, formerly known as Kyteman, brings his modular synthesizer to the stage for an experimental set. Acid Arab will turn the venue into a scene straight out of 1001 nights. Chicago rapper Saba completes the first line-up release. In the coming months, many more artists will be announced.
