Opening act: Psychology. In a co-presentation with evenko
The Doggfather at the Festival? Wow, what a coup! It’s a first Festival appearance for the king of West Coast rap, who’s been dropping salty, salacious rhymes for over 20 years. With 12 studio albums to his credit, including the stellar Doggystyle that made him a star, the Dogg recently renamed himself Snoop Lion and shifted from hip-hop towards reggae. Witness his latest album, Reincarnated, produced by Diplo and laced with excellent dub, dancehall and electronica-hip-hop grooves. Is this the end of rap for Snoop? We can’t be certain, because while you can take the boy out of Gangsta, you can’t take the Gangsta out of the boy. Respect! Opening act: Psychology.
