Outlook will also be teaming up with a number of partners over the course of the weekend, including Rinse FM, Keep Hush, Hessle Audio, Ilian Tape, Rupture, Skreamizm, Hot Wuk and Pretty Weird.
Full stage and day-by-day breakdowns have also been announced, with a range of crews, collectives, artists, MCs, singers, rappers, and labels represented, as well as and an array of new-school talent.
The organisers have promised to put a ‘hyper-focus’ on audio over the course of the weekend, with only the highest spec sound systems in place to soundtrack proceedings.
As well as music, there will also be a series of talks, workshops, film, and panels that will dive deep into the roots of the culture. This is the first time that Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire has been used for a music festival – so an exciting weekend awaits.
