One of the most successful hip hop groups of all time, OutKast, returns to celebrate its 20th anniversary, and is one of the over 30 artists included as the first additions to Flow Festival 2014. Flow Festival is organised again in Suvilahti, Helsinki on August 8–10 with a broad selection of the moment’s most interesting music. Besides the comeback gig of OutKast, the festival features dark indie rock from The National, hip hop from South Africa’s controversial Die Antwoord and R&B soul artist Janelle Monáe.
Electronic music will be prominently featured with Darkside, the joint project of Nicolas Jaar and multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington, the hugely popular German Paul Kalkbrenner and French act Kavinsky, as well as a frontline of Brits including Bonobo, Mercury Award nominee Jon Hopkins, James Holden and Jamie xx, of The xx fame, all joining Flow.
Flow Festival continues its tradition of serving up a broad selection of eclectic and stimulating music as well as visual arts and films. More additions to the line-up will be announced soon. Nokia continues as the main partner of Flow Festival, and other confirmed partners include Brand Factory, Clear Channel, Heineken, Helsingin Sanomat, Raha-automaattiyhdistys, RGB, Red Bull Music Academy and Yellow Tail.
