Across four heavy days, impressive shows are lined up from the UK’s golden boy; J Hus, the Mercury Prize nominated East London rapper whose addictive mix of rap and afrobeat has made him a household name. Then there’s ‘Queen of the Dancehall’ Stefflon Don, set to impress with her wicked wordplay, natural finesse and bars about female empowerment and street life. Don’t miss Outlook favourite, almighty selector David Rodigan, who’ll bring his blend of jungle, dub, reggae and more, alongside Bonobo’s uplifting blend of live electronica. Man of the moment, Kojey Radical captivates with raw, political sounds, plus Children of Zeus present soulful hip-hop.

Outlook Festival will work with ‘Artists in Residence’ to add an individual flair to our line-up through the year. The first artist is Mr Lee, a highly skilled illustrator. He will be creating individually drawn artist cards for a selection of the Outlook 2018 artists as well as working on billboards and a variety of posters.
