Le Guess Who? Utrecht

Last updated 2 years ago by Michael Darmanin

During Le Guess Who? 2018, the Portuguese platform Canal180 traveled to Utrecht to film in collaboration with the festival.

Titled ‘Representing the Underrepresented’, it reveals the story and ideology behind Le Guess Who? and, following its March 29 premiere at MIL Festival in Lisbon,we can show the film here.

The film touches on subjects like presenting music and cultures that are underrepresented; the importance of diversity in general, and also within the festival programming; thoughts on the term ‘world music’; algorithms in relation to music; and the role of marketing in relation to these topics.

‘Representing the Underrepresented’ features contributions by festival artists like Shabaka Hutchings, Richard Fearless, Jacco Gardner, Vashti Bunyan, Go Kurosawa and several members of the Le Guess Who? team.

We are looking forward to concerts in November from this innovative group
