Flow Festival has announced its latest bookings for 2020, leading with British rap and grime artist Stormzy, R&B star FKA twigs, and Michael Kiwanuka, whose latest album KIWANUKA featured on our list of TFFT Favourite Albums Of The Year 2019.
Mac DeMarco also joins previously-announced headliner Bon Iver on the lineup, having grown into a bona fide alternative rock superstar. Flow will also host a show by punk phenomenon Bikini Kill, whose political lyrics and thought-provoking performances helped create the Riot Grrrl movement in the early 1990s, before reuniting in 2019 to huge acclaim.
Also appearing at Suvilahti are electronic group Chromatics who released new album Closer to Grey late last year after a lengthy break from recording; Koffee, a reggae star who brings together fresh sounds with Jamaican cultural and musical traditions; and Mabel, one of the most prominent names from a new generation of British R&B singers. Finnish additions to the lineup include one of the scene’s top rappers Gettomasa as well as Henrik! and Teksti-TV 666 who are set to make a Life Aid 2020 appearance together on the main stage.
In addition to its extensive musical lineup, Flow Festival is also known for its topical arts program, rich, varied and high-quality food offerings and magical festival area.
Three-day passes for Flow Festival are now available, and more lineup announcements are expected next week.
