YourMum Stage by Red Bull 2018 Highlights
Gifted with DIY production skills, and a majestic voice that’s textured as if sung from within a deep cave, CIFIKA composes music that evokes a futuristic dimension and otherworldly sound. Her unique blend of ethereal sonics and deep beats has propelled her from South Korea’s underground scene and sets her apart as one of the “new wave kids thriving outside of the K-Pop Machine” (VICE).
Shame are putting a raucous swagger back into British guitar music. Heavily influenced by post-punk legends The Fall, the London-based five-piece inject a raw and visceral edge into their politically charged indie rock, winning rave reviews for both their debut album Songs of Praise and their searing live shows.
The No.1 breakout act at this year’s SXSW festival, Brooklyn art-punks Bodega are tipped for greatness. Plus don’t miss out the Taiwanese Jazz sound of 9M88, Hong Kong local Cantonese math-folk-rock named “gai dan jane yuk bang” (GDJYB), Cornelius, the maverick multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada from Japan who is described as “a modern-day Brian Wilson” and “the Japanese Beck”.
Catch Alt-dance group D.A.N and Lydmor, one of the most hotly tipped artists in Denmark. Bohan Phoenix is a rapper who uniquely bridges the gap between the Chinese and US hip-hop scenes.
Everyone needs to recharge now and then, and there are plenty of shaded spots around the festival site to grab a drink, a bite to eat or to simply chill out in relaxed surroundings. At Food Bazaar, fans can chow down on an extensive selection of delicious food from around the world, or experience a laidback picnic vibe in which to enjoy a coffee and a cupcake. Alternatively, revive your senses with a signature Red Bull mixed drink.
