Are there any artists you come for today?
“Yes, quite a few: I really like Bokoesam and Dylisa. Cho is coming tomorrow, so unfortunately I can’t see him. But luckily Dopebwoy, Poke, Jonna Fraser and Afro Bros are there today.”

Do you think there should be more women on lineups?
“The names I just mentioned were almost exclusively men, so more women could be added. But I couldn’t really name anyone. I think Dylisa is really cool, she has really nice songs. I’m very good at connect with her lyrics. For example, she made a song for her mother and grandmother and I just think that is very sweet and beautiful of her. She actually deserves more shine.”

How should that happen?
“Of course you can’t force people to listen to her, but if she gets a bigger stage, maybe that will happen.”

Which female artist would you like to see at a festival again?
“Cardi B I think. I don’t always get it, but when I hear a song from her, I almost always know it completely. Apparently I listen to it more than I realize, so it’s someone who has a lot of influence on me has.”
