Lowlands 2018 confirms N.E.R.D, James Bay and more


Lowlands Festival announces another batch of names, including top-tier acts N.E.R.D and James Bay. The Dutch festival takes place on 17-19 August 2018.

N.E.R.D and James Bay lead the second Lowlands announcement, but it is a big and diverse one so we can find many gems: Patti Smith and Tom Odell for people who want great singers on stage; Nils Frahm, Nick Murphy and The Blaze for the ones who prefer alternative electronic acts; or King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Gogol Bordello for anyone who wants to mosh on rock and punk. Protoje & The Indignation will satisfy people who like to add a little bit of daytime reggae music to their festival.
