Different Class 2022
Since 2012, each summer has marked a time for the Subbacultcha community to celebrate with some of our favourite talents. Through thick and thin we worked to provide you with one of the most exciting Summer festivals in Belgium every year. Lucky for you, on August 6, we are back, and the meeting place for friends and performers is KASK & Conservatory in Ghent!
So yeah, Different Class!

We organised a lineup of trailblazing acts we know you’ll love. First of all, Radio Ruit - a community-based online radio station currently in residence at Theresia - is inviting three artists: Ravioli, Tamqrant, aka.miki. Swedish producer Oli XL is the latest signed artist on the prestigious WARP label. The Dutch-Belgian tandem Meetysteem and Victor De Roo released the beautiful and suitable EP Was Het Maar Eens Niet Zo'n Feest at the beginning of this year. London-based R&B star Ojerime is one of the hidden gems of the festival. Different Class will be her Belgian debut. Russian singer-songwriter and producer Kate NV finds inspiration for her electronic pop sound from cartoons, art, and classical music. Sunniva Lindgård, or Sassy 009 is a hallucinogenic pop musician from Oslo. And last but not least, Parisian Paul Seul and Krampf spin b2b! Co-founder of collective Casual Gabberz, Paul Seul is known for hard techno Gabber sounds, while Krampf has been remixing and arranging a wide variety of projects for over a decade.
