REC. x Kino // Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.

WLike last year, REC. and Kino collaborate to add some visuals to the festival. On two moments during the weekend, Kino will screen the hottest music documentary of the year; they got their hands on the award-winning Sundance-doc MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. Join us in this fantastic warm-up for the weekend’s festival!
Drawn from a cache of personal video recordings from the past 22 years, director Steve Loveridge’s Sundance award winning MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. is a startlingly personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee immigrant to pop star.

REC. +concert // H.E.R.

After welcoming Yasiin Bey on Wednesday, Annabel hand the stage to Gabriella ‘Gabi’ Wilson, better known by her stage name H.E.R. (Having Everything Revealed), an R&B singer from California.
It came out of nowhere two years ago: her first release under RCA Records, where all the big ones are signed. Today, the 21-year-old R&B singer has no less than 121 million streams on her collab with Daniel Ceasar ‘Best Part’ and 5.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. She’s toured with Bryson Tiller and shares the stage with David Glover’s alias Childish Gambino. 
It’s safe to say H.E.R herself is one of the big ones now. 
On the 1st of November the Lauryn Hill-influenced singer will give an intimate show in Annabel Rotterdam. Tickets for this show will go on sale tomorrow. 
Note: for this +concert you have to buy a specific ticket. You cannot enter this concert with Weekend Passe-Partout. However, when you buy a Weekend Passe-Partout you can grab a ticket for a +concert for an additional €10.
