- Sinan, an illusionist, will join us for sleight of hand,
- Seeking guidance and insight from a tarot reading by Jannes van Arkel, unveiling hidden mysteries

Spice Dokha
In Spicy Dokha’s journey of escaping the frameworks of must-be’s, her final destination is to fully-be. Her work is always positioned between worlds: from digital to print and image to sound. The work by the experimental artist and vocalist is a translation of pain and shame as well as joy and imagination.

Radio Trapani
RADIO TRAPANI (NL/ITA) makes indie-pop, groovy beats with a hint of jazz melancholia. It is the alter ego of Dario Trapani, Amsterdam-based producer, guitarist and songwriter with a background in jazz and countless hours spent on Ableton. His songs are a processed blend of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Frank Ocean, Mac DeMarco and Dirty Projectors.

the Downbeat Detonators - Rocksteady and Ska from Rotterdam inspired by Jamaican ska from the ’60’s & ‘70s.

(Experimental rock - Buh Records - Lima, PÉROU)
Puppies in the Sun is a noise rock duo with Alberto Cendra on synths and Cristobal Pereira on vocals and drums.
Combining percussions, acoustics, samplers and synthesizers, Puppies in the Sun creates a lively, hypnotic and cathartic performance. Influenced by krautrock, techno, neo-psychedelicism and black metal, PUPPIES IN THE SUN are part of the psych-rock fête of the BUH RECORDS catalogue. Releasing an impressive fury in a wall of sound with their minimum set-up taking you on a transformative auditive journey
