“Performing and attending Le Guess Who? has, without a doubt, been a highlight of my touring life. Such an exciting and welcoming setting to perform in, such a well thought-out and inviting environment to experience new music in. 

As some people very close to me are part of Le Guess Who? family, I have had the privilege of witnessing some behind the scenes elements of what goes into conceiving of each version – a year-long process that begins for the next festival mere weeks after the current festival weekend is done.

The extensive & thoughtful dreaming & scheming to make each year greater than the one before… the care and concern that goes into planning every single element.. knowing that the experience of any one person attending the festival is at the heart of what motivates the tremendous amount of work that goes into creating the experience, make Le Guess Who? something more than “just” a music festival.

Being able to attend and perform at this festival is a true honour.”

Jessica Moss performs at Le Guess Who? on Sunday, 12 November, together with Perfume Genius, Julianna Barwick,, Linda Sharrock, Sun Ra Arkestra, Black Lips, Yves Tumor and many more. Full line-up and tickets can be found at the festival website.
