Flow Festival has announced its latest bookings for 2020, leading with British rap and grime artist Stormzy, whose album Heavy is the Head currently holds the number one spot on the UK album chart.
R&B star FKA twigs, whose productions and performances belie her complete mastery of the pop aesthetic also joins proceedings, alongside Michael Kiwanuka whose latest album has been a frequent sight on lists of the last year’s best releases. Mac DeMarco also joins the bill today, 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 at Ticketmaster, and more lineup announcements are expected next week.
