Croatia’s Outlook Festival is back – and their first wave of announcements is a doozy.
Set to run from September 3-7 at Croatia’s sunkissed Fort Punta Christo in Pula, Outlook is about as sound a festival bet as you can find, with a line-up that’s rarely anything but corking. So it goes with their initial 2014 announcements.
Biggest of the bunch is New York rap loon Busta Rhymes, last heard collaborating with Q-Tip on their The Abstract and the Dragon tape; expect rapid-fire wordplay and two decades worth of radio rap hits. Dancehall royalty Barrington Levy is also confirmed to appear, pulling from 30-odd albums worth of material, and dubstep progenitors Digital Mystikz will be providing the bass weight.
Joining them will be rap game legend DJ Premier, Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy, the indomitable Moodymann, Eglo boss Floating Points, and Paul Woolford, appearing under his Special Request guise. Further additions include Buraka Som Sistema, Andy C, Goldie, David Rodigan, MJ Cole, DJ EZ, Chronixx & Zinc Redemption.
