Josylvio, Slowthai, 101Barz, Wiki , Ol’ Bur­ger Beats, Deemz and Yussef Dayes set to join Madlib, Fam­ous Dex, Smooky Mar­Gie­laa, Wiley and more, col­labs with Patta, SMIB and Parra announced.

After 18 years as Amsterdam’s lead­ing hip-hop fest­iv­al, Appelsap remains of and for the cul­ture; push­ing harder than ever for cre­at­ive street cul­tureDis­cov­ery, devel­op­ment and present­a­tion of new tal­ent is always pri­or­it­ised, high­light­ing new cre­at­ives from the city and bey­ond. Appelsap are proud to drop the full Fle­vo­park line-up for August 11, as well as Patta, SMIB and Parra, as well as it’s 2018 cam­paign, cel­eb­rat­ing it’s 18 years / ‘com­ing of age,’ where a new gen of artists pays trib­ute to hip-hop her­oes through­out the years.

Fresh names for the line up are are Dutch rap­per Josylvio, whose street­wise, hard­core approach has earned him a Num­ber One album in the Dutch charts, plus young gun rap­per Slowthai, a UK name whose gritty bars and cap­tiv­at­ing live show has won him love the world over. Infec­tious, ghetto house is set to Appelsap, with Dance Mania Mas­ter, DJ Deeon, join­ing for the the first time. There’s Genre-defy­ing glob­al sounds from Browns­wood play­er, Ruby Sav­age, while Patta Sound­sys­tem’s Mairo Nawaz is set to bring heat to Fle­vo­park. Plus, don’t miss 101Barz, Ol’ Bur­ger Beats, Deemz, $KEER&BOO$, LYZZA and Wiki. Also new on the bill are WaxFiend, Daniel OG, MC Lyr­ic­al Tie, MC Len­tini, Jer­rausama and Poke, who’ll join Fam­ous Dex, Smooky Mar­Gie­laa, SMIB, Wiley, Madlib, De Jeugd Van Tegen­woor­dig, Jacin Trill and Leafs already announced. 

2018’s out­ing sees 3 stages come togeth­er, plus the SMIB Sta­tion. The stages are col­lab­or­a­tions with Noi­sey, Boil­er Room and Amsterdam’s Patta Sound­sys­tem. Appelsap fam­ily, cre­at­ive col­lect­ive SMIB will host a vibe area with per­formers, DJs and artists. A spe­cial cap­sule col­lec­tion from its cloth­ing label Sumibu will be launched, and to fur­ther cement Appelsap’s ties to the city of Ams­ter­dam, a large sculp­ture by the artist Parra will be unveiled dur­ing the fest­iv­al.

A key play­er in Dutch hip-hop cul­ture, Appelsap has paved the way for the move­ment in the city, being the first in the Neth­er­lands to book lead­ing inter­na­tion­al acts like Kendrick Lamar, Travi$ Scott, Skep­ta and Stormzy, plus show­cas­ing now huge Dutch acts like Broeder­lief­de, Lil Kleine, Sevn Ali­as, De Jeugd Van Tegen­woor­dig and The Oppos­ites in the early days of their careers. It’s what earned Appelsap the pres­ti­gi­ous Ams­ter­dam Prize for the Arts last year.

In a chan­ging fest­iv­al land­scape, dis­cov­er­ing the new­est acts remains the focal point of Appelsap, and that is why all stages have become equal to each oth­er. With that per­spect­ive, the fest­iv­al will focus even more on the very best from the (inter)national under­ground of hip-hop and elec­tron­ic music. Appelsap wants to play an inter­me­di­ary role between new tal­ent and under­ground clas­sics, styles and cul­tures, and will also focus on oth­er aspects of street cul­ture, like street fash­ion and art.
