This year's line-up includes 77 fantastic names. The final additions look good. The super talented, homegrown artist Coely will open the Main Stage on Friday, 30 June. KluB C also knows who will open and close on Friday. The talented debutant LANY will perform summery electropop and Charlotte de Witte will round off the day dancing. New for Saturday, 1 July in KluB C is Tash Sultana, a phenomenon in her homeland Australia and ready to conquer the rest of the world. There are two more KluB C additions on Sunday, 2 July: Karen Elson, who just released her wonderful album Distant Shore, will open and we expect a crazy party with The Avalanches at night.
