Flow Festival takes over Ljubljana »

"The Flow Festival brand takes a new step in its internationalization as Flow Festival Ljubljana is organized in the Slovenian capital June 26–28 in collaboration with Slovenian organizers. Like Helsinki's Flow, the newfound festival will focus on inspiring and current music, urban culture, visual arts, engaging services and an entertaining location. The Ljubljana festival is held in a unique factory milieu from the late 19th century – as is Flow Festival Helsinki. Ljubljana has been named by the world tourist community as one of the most appealing European destinations, but has so far not had the opportunity to host a music festival of this stature. The lineup of Flow Festival Ljubljana already includes Pet Shop Boys, Róisín Murphy, Run The Jewels, Caribou, Metronomy, José González, Bonobo DJ set, Âme, Dixon, DJ Koze and Derrick May, as well as local and regional artists such as Bad Copy, Edo Maajka, Polona Kasal x KALU and Torul."

Several new acts to the lineup

The newest additions to Flow Festival’s lineup include US-based hip hop acts Tyler, The Creator and ILoveMakonnen, UK-based electro debutant Years & Years and US-based Future Brown. Flow will also feature fresh Swedish pop act Elliphant, established American DJ Diplo as well as Finnish artists Paperi T, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?, French Films, J. Karjalainen’s Lännen-Jukka act, Manna and Regina.

Beck ready for Flow Festival

Adventurous multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Beck Hansen, better known simply as Beck, will perform in Finland for first time at Flow Festival. He rose to prominence in 1994 with his hit Loser and has gradually become a renowned and celebrated artist, creating an instantly recognizable style in three different decades. This alternative rock’s pioneer returned to the spotlight last year with his 12th album Morning Phase, which garnered a lot attention and praise. More additions to Flow’s lineup include Belle and Sebastian as well as The War On Drugs. Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance is the just released ninth studio album by Belle and Sebastian featuring a more electronic and danceable sound.
