Outline: Summer will take place Knockdown Center’s backyard space, “The Ruins,” across the last weekend of August, Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th, 2021, featuring headline performances by NYC post-punk icons ESG, and Canadian dance-pop favorite Jessy Lanza, and specially selected daily lineups for a cross-genre party that pays honor to club music’s past, present, and future.
Joining the legendary Bronx pioneers ESG on Saturday’s lineup will be an exciting group of young performers that span pop, hip-hop, and R&B, including: rising L.A. synth-pop duo Magdalena Bay; Minneapolis-based songwriter, rapper, and poet, Dua Saleh; Philadelphia’s beat innovator Body Meat; and wildly prolific rapper Pink Siifu, performing with DJ Ted Kamal and special guest appearances from members of associated crew GKFAM.
Sunday’s lineup surrounds Jessy Lanza with an eclectic collection of artists from different corners of dance music. It will include: NYC house and hip-hop producer Galcher Lustwerk, performing a “100% Galcher” set of original material; mysterious left field pop artist Doss; Miami bass-music duo Basside, whose SOPHIE-produced, Fuck It Up EP, was released earlier in 2021; Cibo Matto founder and prolific solo artist, Miho Hatori; and L.A. synth-punk newcomers Provoker, whose debut record for influential Swedish label YEAR001 is expected later this year.
Resuming a regular schedule from this Summer relaunch, Outline will return inside the Knockdown Center hall for Outline: Fall in November of 2021, and then continue with Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall events throughout 2022.
