Belgium’s Dour Festival returns this year with Carl Craig taking to the stage.
The Detroit techno king will be joined by Underground Resistance’s ‘Mad’ Mike Banks. Elsewhere on the bill you’ll find Dub Police’s Emalkay, whose dubstep squealer ‘When I Look At You’ proved a minor crossover hit last year, funk jokers Chromeo, Brodinski, The Dub Pistols and The Very Best, the collaboration between Radioclit and Esau Mwamwaya.
Famed Digital Hardcore stormtroopers Atari Teenage Riot play, having reunited last month. The ATR line-up will be Alec Empire, Nic Endo and Hanin Elias.
Then there’s Chris Cunningham, the infamous video director of ‘Come to Daddy’, ‘Windowlicker’ and more, Clues, Black Sun Empire, Crown City Rockers, hip-hop legends De la Soul, DJ Marky and A-Trak.
Garage rock icons The Sonics are also on board, as well as comedy metal lot and Beavis and Butthead favourites Gwar, apparently. 187 other acts are still to be announced.
Dour is a French speaking village in Belgium, situated in the Walloon region in the Hainaut county. The festival takes place from July 15-18. More information here.
