INITIAL PROGRAM FOR LGW ON
LGW ON is curated by Le Guess Who?, together with artists who previously performed at the festival, including Matana Roberts, John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie), Lucrecia Dalt and The Bug, who have all selected their favorite videos, films and documentaries for the channel.

On the channel, Le Guess Who? will launch ‘Reports from Other Continents’, in which people from all over the world share video reports on topics such as art, culture and music from within their local community. Normally, Le Guess Who? shares these kinds of special stories about worldwide musical traditions and cultural developments through concerts and performing artists; now the festival has found a way to do so online.
‘Reports from Other Continents’ will include video reports from a.o. Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, India, Iraq, Mexico, Nepal, South Africa, Tanzania, Turkey, and Venezuela. All reports are made specifically for Le Guess Who? and are commissioned by the festival.
We will also be streaming previously unseen live recordings of festival performances by Mary Margaret O'Hara, Sons of Kemet XL and Circuit des Yeux Ensemble; live sessions with Dutch artists; Zoom interviews; uncommissioned work of video artists; a documentary about Le Guess Who?; and highlights from the thirteen-year archive of the festival.
An initial overview of the films, documentaries, and other programs can be found here; the full TV guide will become available late October.
