FKA Twigs, Devo To Play Flow Festival 2023
FKA Twigs and Caroline Polachek lead the list of acts announced for the Flow Festival next summer.
Devo will also play at the festival as part of their farewell tour. Also appear at the festival are Suede, Amyl and the Sniffers, Jockstrap and 070 Shake, while Sexmane, Ege Zulu, Ruusut, Yona & Tapiola Sinfonietta, Olavi Uusivirta and Anna Puu have also joined the lineup.
Flow Festival 2023 will be taking place August 11-13. Standard three-day tickets cost 225€ (£192.96) each while ‘gold’ tickets are priced at 345€ (£295.94) and day tickets can be bought for 115€ (£98.65).
FKA Twigs released a mixtape, Caprisongs, at the beginning of this year, along with a series of videos. Flow Festival is the latest European festival Twigs has scheduled for next summer – she will also be playing at next year’s Øya Festival in Norway, which takes place the same week as Flow, as well as Primavera Sound.
In an interview earlier in the year for GQ, FKA Twigs talked about Caprisongs, the importance of confidence for young women in the music, and her feelings as an emerging artist.
Discussing Caprisongs, Twigs talks about finding a new level with her music, she says of her previous work, “I didn’t feel trapped, I felt like I was just being myself. But I guess I just unlocked a new door, like a video game. It’s not even like I broke out. I think I just unlocked another level. It’s so good.”
Moving on to discuss her standing as a young woman in the music industry, FKA Twigs spoke about how essential it is for artists to stand up for themselves, “I think it’s important for specifically young women in a creative industry to have the confidence to understand their business and have the confidence to understand their worth and have the confidence to want more for themselves,”
