LINE-UP

Grace Jones
Fashion Model, Movie Star, Singer, Queen Diva on the nightclub scene, all this and more, a larger than life persona who is among the most recognised of international celebrities. Grace continues to entertain audiences worldwide with her exciting and provocative stage show. The onetime model and all-time champion has recorded a new album (her first for some time) and it sounds like an album she could have made before when she was younger, striding from country to country, to magazine pose to club to airports and another city, to 12 inch mix, stage to television, big screen, infamy and beyond, An album she could only have made now, or at some point in the future

Moderat
Moderat are Modeselektor and Apparat: Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than these two heavyweights. Twelve years after their first meeting, they’ve come together once again: more mature, but not worldly-wise, wiser but not unquestioning, more experienced but without having sacrificed any of their pioneer spirit.

Yussef Kamaal
Shaped by the sound of London. Growing up in the capital, they frame jazz within the bass-saturated, pirate radio broadcasts of the UK capital. The pair, made up of Yussef Dayes and Kamaal Williams (aka Henry Wu), have had little in the way of formal training. Instead, their musical tastes – and approach to playing – are indebted to Thelonious Monk’s piano as much as the drum programming of Kaidi Tatham.

Moses Boyd: Solo X
drummer, composer, producer and electronic musician born in London. Winner of the MOBO Awards 2015 Best jazz act, The John Peel ‘Play more Jazz Award’ from the 2016 Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards and more. Moses has worked and collaborated with the likes of Lonnie Liston Smith, Ed Motta, Little Simz, Four Tet, Floating Points, Sampha, Zara McFarlane, Gilles Peterson, and many more, infusing Jazz, grime and electronica influences.

VENUE

Around 2000 years old, Pula Arena is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world and one of the most iconic buildings in Croatia.

The Amphitheatre is located a 20-minute boat ride away from the Outlook festival site. If you are staying on the campsite or plan on spending the day on site we recommend you book a spot on one of our Boat taxis which will take you from the festival harbour to the amphitheatre and back.

For capacity reasons the Opening Concert is ticketed separately, as the Amphitheatre can’t hold as many people as the Fort. If you booked a festival-only ticket for Dimensions Festival 2017, access to the Opening Concert is not included, but you can purchase it separately.
