A CONVERSATION WITH BOB VAN HEUR (LE GUESS WHO?)
Le Guess Who? is one of our favourite festivals in the world. It is a city-wide celebration of global sounds that focuses on artists that feel the urge to explore and expand the boundaries of certain genres. The festival features non-western sounds, jazz, folk, ambient, drone, avant-garde, modern composed, as well as contemporary pop and rock culture, and many blended forms of these genres, and it has guest curators such as Fatoumata Diawara, Devendra Banhart, Savages or Swans’ Michael Gira. We will speak with Bob Van Heur, the founder and artistic director, about the history and trajectory of the festival.
