Where’s Wiley? In Amsterdam this summer, that’s where.
Amsterdam’s premier hip-hop festival has just been hit with a helping of grime, thanks to the addition of Eskiboy to the line-up.
Grime Godfather Wiley was given an MBE this year for his services to music – one of the most esteemed awards someone can get from the British Royal Family and a fitting description of this guy’s contribution to British music and culture. He’ll grace the Flevopark festival on August 11, becoming the latest London artist to feature at the event following 67 last summer and Skepta in 2015.
Expect some serious energy from Wiley, with his 140BPM tracks sure to get an international crowd moving. With well over a decade of hits and experience in working a crowd, his appearance at Appelsap will be a big moment for the festival.
As well as Wiley, you can expect to see the likes of US legend Madlib, as well as a host of Dutch talent and hip-hop artists from all over the world. Check out the full line-up and information about tickets on the Appelsap site.
