First wave of artists for 2020
The leading sustainable music and arts festival We Love Green announces its first wave of artists for its 2020 event, which will run from June 6th-7th at the Bois de Vincennes public park on the outskirts of Paris.
We Love Green is proud to present two exceptional headliners in the shape of Lana Del Rey and Young Thug !
The iconic Lana Del Rey needs no introduction. She’s gone from strength-to-strength with her current album “Norman Fucking Rockwell!”, which features at the top of numerous end of year polls the world over. It’s already earned two Grammy Award nominations: Album of the Year and Song of the Year for its title track.
With his distinctive flow, killer hooks and larger-than-life personality, Young Thug lives up to his billing as “the 21st century’s most influential rapper” (BBC). Having collaborated with Future, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole and many more, Young Thug’s debut album ‘So Much Fun’ lived up to expectations when it was released in August. The Atlanta rapper is also in contention for a Grammy for Best Rap Performance for ‘The London’.
The initial line-up reflects the eclecticism that has become a hallmark of We Love Green’s programming. Disclosure and Four Tet provide two very different takes on electronica, but both artists excel at creating euphoric atmospheres, in juxtaposed yet complementary with Puerto Rican Latin trip and reggaeton singer Bad Bunny. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are the very definition of a post-genre band, their maverick spirit exploring everything from psychedelia to future funk and metal as the mood takes them. Nils Frahm is a similarly a visionary artist, moving between melancholic piano-orientated ambience and progressive, hypnotic rhythms.
