Summer Sickness 2020: Outlook Origins
July 30th – 3rd August 2020. Limited early bird tickets are still available here.
Now February has finally done one… We might still be a stretch away from T-shirt weather but since winter is almost dead we’re already getting hyped for summer and getting in sweaty crowds full of waved festival goers to some of the best hip hop the UK scene has to offer. With that sentiment in mind, we’re very happy to announce Outlook Origins as the first of our 2020 festival selections.
Last time we went, back in 2018, was an absolute madness. The Outlook experience was unique. The combination of Croatian sun, loved up crowds, a tonne of sick hip hop, insane boat parties and rib-cage-shaking soundsystems playing the full spectrum of bass music made for an experience different to any festival we’ve been to before.
Part of what has made Outlook iconic amongst festivals is undeniably the massive abandoned stone fort at Punta Cristo that’s been it’s home for the last decade. While Outlook regulars have been understandably sad to say goodbye to the Fort, this year’s Outlook Origins is promising to be something very special…
As the name implies, Outlook Origins is about taking the festival back to its roots. The first ever Outlook in 2008 took place at The Garden, originally located in Petrcane, but now relocated to Tisno. Fittingly this year the festival returns to its Garden beginnings and is hosting a more intimate event with its capacity greatly reduced. Embracing the spirit of returning to its core elements, this year’s event has got sourcing music for the heads on lock with 12 curators made up of true legends from their respective scenes. As last years event featured a bit of a dip in hip hop acts we were hyped to see that High Focus founder Fliptrix is amongst the Origins curators to fly the flag for the UK hip hop scene in 2020!
In addition to the man himself, the first line up announcements already promise performances from Children of Zeus, Black Josh and Coops plus a host of sick spitters across other genres including DRS, P Money, Flowdan and Lady Lykez. With the next line up announcement imminent we’re excited to see the other acts that Fliptrix has invited to the Croatian coastline.
There are still a limited number of early bird tickets available. To secure a place in the sun this year cop one here.
