The 4xFAR festival has announced its inaugural 2020 lineup featuring the likes of Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, Mark Ronson and Q-Tip, Young The Giant, Kurt Vile and The Violators and Sofi Tukker. This festival is set to take place at the Empire Grand Oasis, in Coachella Valley from January 18th to January 19th 2020. Other artists confirmed for the event include Maya Jane Coles, Tijuana Panthers, Mahalia, LP Giobbi and Chappaqua Wrestling, although more will be announced in the future.
While this latest experience is being brought to the same venue that brings the massive Coachella experience every year, this new festival has an emphasis on the outdoors. Attendees can explore 35 acres of the oasis, and join in on the multiple activities which include mountain biking, yoga, fly fishing, campsite mixology, and a survival skills course all hosted by Outside magazine. In addition, attendees can also test drive a new Land Rover Defender, on a purpose built, off- road course.
Anderson .Paak recently released his latest studio album Ventura, earlier this year. “Ventura is a funky return to the glossy grooves that defined Paak’s music before Oxnard. While there are undoubtedly questionable moments production-wise as well as a fair share of dull and awkward moments vocally, Paak delivers yet another compelling, lively album that has undoubted appeal across multiple genres,” mxdwn reviewer Henry Green explained.
Vile recently released the mini-documentary (bottle back) featuring the track “Baby’s Arms,” with the Sadies. During the video Vile discusses his music, recording style, and life before playing inside a large Victorian, classic home.
