A Future Feminism performance at this year's Le Guess Who? will feature Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine and The Girls Of Karen Black

Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival has added another wave of its name to its bill for this year including a special theatrical performance called 'Future Feminism'.

That performance will feature Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine and The Grls Of Karen Black, and has been added to director and activist Asia Argento's personally curated programme. The performance will be based around what they call the 13 Tenets of Future Feminism, a project Pfahler and Constantine have been collaborating on with Anohni since 2014.

Elsewhere on the bill, RVNG Intl. will celebrate 15 years with a line-up featuring label acts such as Kate NV, Lucrecia Dalt, Greg Fox, Oliver Coates and more, including a series of collaborative performance based around RVNG's FRKWYS series in which contemporary acts team up with people considered pioneers in similar musical fields.

Moor Mother's curated programme has the new addition of FAKA, Lyzza and Eartheater, while Shabaka Hutchings' bill will feature Orchestra Of Spheres and DJ Noss. Asia Argento has added Joe Coleman, Rose McGowa, Martin Bisi and Ian Svenonius' Escape-ism.

The above join a line-up that already includes Art Ensemble of Chicago, Devendra Banhart, The Breeders, Sons Of Kemet and many more.
