People are freaking out over Lorde, James Bay, alt-J, The Neighbourhood and Odesza at We The Fest 2018

9 February 2018

We The Fest, Indonesia's biggest international music festival, will be blowing up the JIExpo Exhibition Center in Jakarta on July 20-22, courtesy of the star power of Lorde, James Bay, alt-J, The Neighbourhood, and Odesza. The lineup announcement hit a few days ago, and music fans here in SE Asia are struggling to cope.

Lorde, best known for her single Royals (among other massive songs), will be headlining the festival along with multiple Grammy-nominated folk rock artist James Bay. Their fans have been freaking out ever since the announcement, with some of them literally going "WTF" for #WTF18.

Understandably, no one has any chill about the news, especially with psychedelic indie rock band alt-J, hip hop-rock crossover artists The Neighbourhood, and electronic music duo Odesza hyping up an already-stellar lineup.

Rounding out the lineup for We The Fest 2018 are future-bass act Louis the Child, French DJ Petit Biscuit, alt-pop duo Honne, Brooklyn-based DJ Moon Boots, and local artists Maliq & D'Essentials, Mooner, Seringai, Pijar, Semenjana, and Teza Sumendra. So basically, everyone is SHOOK.

July can't come soon enough. While you're waiting, check out the afterparty video of last year's We The Fest, and show yourself exactly why you need to start booking your tickets NOW.
