Bölzer And Virus Confirmed For Le Guess Who? Festival

By on 1 October 2015


The lineup for this year’s Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht just gets better and better, as Swiss death metal innovators Bölzer and Norwegian avant-garde legends Virus have both just been confirmed for the event’s Sunn O))) curated programme.

Other new additions include classically trained Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir, who has performed with Throbbing Gristle and Múm; Dutch black/doom outfit Terzij de Horde, who will perform their new album ‘Self’ in full; and a reading/performance by John Doran, one of the founders of British music publication The Quietus.

In addition to the above bands, you can also look forward to Keiji Haino, Chelsea Wolfe, OM, Goatsnake, Martyrdöd, The Secret, and Today Is The Day, plus electronic composer Julia Holter, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (known from their ’68 hit ‘Fire’, a huge influence on the likes of Alice Cooper and King Diamond), experimental jazz legend Annette Peacock (who has collaborated with Salvador Dalí and was one of the first jazz artists to record with a Moog after being gifted a prototype from Robert Moog himself), experimental black metallers Aluk Todolo, prog rock pioneers Magma, a collaboration between Einstürzende Neubauten’s F.M. Einheit and avant-garde guitarist Caspar Brötzmann, and (of course) Sunn O))) themselves.

Alongside the Sunn O))) curated programme, Le Guess Who? also boasts the likes of krautrock veterans Faust, transcendental jazz oddballs The Necks, Japanese psych-rockers Bo Ningen and many more, so if you’ve been on the lookout for a more eclectic festival experience, well, here it is!

This year, the festival takes place in Utrecht from November 19-22 across more than fifteen venues, from churches to galleries to pop venues.
