2018’s Republic of ‘Grass is now a full Concrete Reality, created for wide exploration, deep discovery and pure enjoyment.
The full(ish) lineup – 50+ artists, 5 stages, 2 days – is out below, and regular advance tickets are on sale pretty much everywhere!
You can see (and hear) our epic headliners from far, far away but we encourage you to dig in a little further, to uncover our many hidden treasures and strange pleasures.
Why not take a Slowdive into the waters of Loft Beach? There’s a Oneohtrix Point Neverchance of your fun being Stolen by some Cancer Bats, because we’re Watching You From Afar in the Garden of some Jillionaire American Authors watching a Chinese Footballgame. Swim out a little further! The light is fantastic in the DaYGLo, the Goooose don’t bite, and you can pass the time until the Sunset Rollercoaster starts up…
Okay, okay, we’ll stop now. Here’s the lineup:
A shoegaze miracle: wondrous, cosmic, reverb-drenched haze from a genre’s true pioneers
Mutant rhythms and dark experiments: step into the lab of electronic music’s new evil genius
All together now: This is gonna be the best day of my lii-iife, my li-i-i-i-i-i-ife!
Witty stories, cozy rhythms and adorable songs from a colourful, versatile songwriter
Sacred, free-form psychedelic sitar rock of vast universes and strawberry fields forever
Gamer kid, rising rapper, Internet sensation: the festival’s wildest party, right here.
A perpetually intriguing duo of punk jesters with many a catchy musical trick up their sleeves
A guardian of house music’s storied history, and one its most important producers
Infectious, vibrant and meticulous techno from one of Tel Aviv’s most trusted selectors
Supernaturally radiant post-dubstep beats with a wild, imaginative heart
Intimate, delicate urban folk that ponders life, love and better tomorrows
Gorgeous, melancholy folk rock that’s both biting satire and bittersweet nostalgia
A beguiling mix of Chinese opera, folk and jazz-heavy grooves that’s both timeless and timely
+ more to come!
Wait, MORE? TO COME?
