Croatian mainstay Outlook Festival complete their line-up, announcing Mala & The Outlook Orchestra (rhythm section) as an addition to the opening concert.
Kingston lyricist Kabaka Pyramid, bass-line heroine Flava D and DJ Zinc all join for the main festival – along with Bristol based Black Butter originators My Nu Leng & Dread MC, as the festival says goodbye to 10 whole years at Fort Punta Christo.
Each year Outlook kicks off an opening concert inside Pula’s 2000-year-old Roman amphitheatre. Today they reveal that Mala & The Outlook Orchestra (Rhythm Section) join the already announced line-up including Andy C, Loyle Carner, Shy FX and more.
The Orchestra’s Rhythm Section features some of the scene’s finest musicians including two drummers and an extended rhythm section including Richard Spaven (Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra) who steps up on percussion duties for this show alongside Eddie Hicks (Sons Of Kemet). The Mala project will be a special Audio Visual performance.

Next up is Metalheadz signing DLR who’ll take to the festival with Halogenix, Akcept and Dabs all pushing forward drum and bass, a genre the festival is so loved for.
On a more grimey tip is Jetsss will make her return to Outlook alongside P Jam, Neffa T, Treble Clef, Sukh Knight, Oblig and J Beatz whilst Manchester’s finest Chimpo, MC Fox, Chunky, MC DRS will be all repping the rainy city.
