Different Class

26 August - 019, Ghent
TBA - TBA - Free for members

Different class, formerly called Wastelands, is back on track with a cherry-picked selection of artists for your greatest pleasure. For this year’s edition at the former welding factory in Ghent you need to become a member to enter.


This Brixton-born underground artist makes a mix of dancehall, R&B, grime and hip hop with the ferocity of a robot and the dark aestheticism of artists like Mykki Blanco, with whom he collaborated last year. He’s a fan of FKA Twigs, Tricky and the Melvins, and generates music equally unfit for definition.

Marching Church

Iceage frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s solo-to-full-band-project Marching Church is a reincarnation of the early Birthday Party infused with the kitsch of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Last Shadow Puppets.

Kedr Livanskiy

Her artist name meaning Lebanese Cedar, her real name being Yana Kedrina, Kedr Livanskiy makes airy and melancholic dance-poptunes inspired by MTV and artists like Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada.


There’s a group of independent creators turning heads in Amsterdam: SMIB Worldwide. They’re an industrious collective dropping EPs, mixtapes, merchandise and clothing lines – all without breaking a sweat. They riled up devoted crowds at Appelsap festival and have become an act you can’t miss live or online.

+ More TBA

To enter this year’s edition of the festival you’ll need to become a member – at the door in advance. Become a Subbacultcha member here.
