Announcing the full line-up for Le Guess Who? 2017

Wed Sep 13th

The full line-up for Le Guess Who? is now revealed, with 60 acts completing the program - check out the full line-up here

The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda performed by the Sai Anantam Ashram Singers
Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s devotion to spirituality defined the final decades of her life. By 1983, she had established the 48-acre Sai Anantam Ashram outside of Los Angeles, where she quietly began recording music. Earlier this year, David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label released the first-ever compilation of recordings from this period: a powerful, largely unheard body of work that finds Alice singing for the first time in her recorded catalog.

The compilation showcases a diverse array of recordings in addition to Alice’s first vocal work: solo performances on her harp, small ensembles, and a 24-piece vocal choir. Now, Alice Coltrane will be celebrated at Le Guess Who?. The festival presents the European premiere of these recordings performed live by the Sai Anantam Ashram Singers, to bring this meaningful piece of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s legacy into focus.

Perfume Genius invites Mary Margaret O’Hara
Added to Perfume Genius’ curated program is a very rare live appearance from Canadian singer-songwriter and cult hero Mary Margaret O’Hara. Her fans include Radiohead and Michael Stipe (who declared her “a national treasure”), and in the past she has collaborated with Morrissey, Tindersticks and This Mortal Coil. Adding to the mystery that surrounds her, O’Hara only ever released one album, 1988’s iconic Miss America.
