Utrecht's Le Guess Who? Festival has today announced the first artists to perform at its November event, with a four-day schedule presided over by Seattle drone heavyweights, Sunn O))), who will showcase their broad experimental discography, together with the festival's eclectic main line-up, additions to which will be made over the coming months.

When you do a search on what Utrecht is famous for, the Dutch city's most prominent attraction points come up as canals and high-quality museums but this ever-growing musical extravaganza, going strong since 2007, is certainly helping the Netherlands' fourth largest city sit comfortably on the global festival map.

With the creative directorial reins being given to Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), this year's programme, spread across more than fifteen venues (including churches, galleries and pop venues), will include not only a celebration of the cross-genre duo's own material but also a performance by the legendary Annette Peacock, who will return to the Netherlands for the first time in over twenty years. Pioneering the realms of minimalism, free jazz, rap, classical music and psychedelic funk, Peacock is one of the first jazz artists to have recorded with a Moog after being gifted a prototype from Robert Moog himself. Impressive, huh?

Other artists coming under the Sunn O))) Presents... part of the line-up include prog-rockers, Magma, Julia Holter and French black metal experimentalists, Aluk Todolo. Hip-hop superstars, Shabazz Palaces, Bo Ningen and 405 faves, Deerhunter join the main performers list together with UK producer, Adrian Sherwood, who will perform his 'At The Controls x3' project.

The 405 is particularly excited about the Mega Record and CD Fair taking place at Utrecht's Jaarbeurs convention centre during the festival. Internationally renowned for its incredibly comprehensive collection of vinyl, CDs and other pop memorabilia, it's one of those fairs where you might just accidentally stumble upon that one ridiculously rare album or single missing from your collection.

Tickets for Le Guess Who? are available from today with early bird 4-Day festival passes going for €90 until the end of June. The late-to-the-party ticket prices are not so bad either, with prices for the 4-day passes rising to €100 from July. There are also festival ticket and hotel packages for the entire weekend, should you need to sleep. Or shower. Or, you know... both.
