KEXP is heading back to Rennes, France, for our second year at the Trans Musicales de Rennes, December 6th through 10th! Our goal, as always when partnering with international festivals like Les Trans, is to discover and share new music from across the globe with you from artists that we may not have otherwise heard. Created in 1979, this wintertime festival has made a name for itself in featuring artists just before they break and seeking new talent from around the world. Last year, we filmed 12 amazing bands including Barbagallo (a side project of the drummer of Tame Impala) and Fai Baba, who we invited back to perform on KEXP earlier this month during Iceland Airwaves. The KEXP video crew and I are looking forward to heading back to Trans Musicales to capture exclusive live sessions from the 2017 lineup, and we want to thank Destination Rennes, La Cité du Son, and Trans Musicales for helping to make the project happen.

Check out a few artists we're eager to record below; look for updates on KEXP’s Instagram, Facebook, and blog; and for video later on KEXP’s Youtube Channel.
