COSMOS is a globe-spanning initiative that amplifies local scenes from around the world. Through films, interviews, performances, and artist residencies, we connect international music communities and share their stories. We build long-lasting relationships and an ever-growing network of partners that support, inspire, and educate one another.
COSMOS was born out of Le Guess Who?’s mission to platform adventurous sounds that have the power to enrich lives. It’s a hub for experimentation and inspiration, and an ever-expanding network of creative minds.
We’re in this together.
The main goal of COSMOS is to build bridges between people who haven’t yet had a chance to cross paths, share their stories, and hear their sounds.
Every year, COSMOS sets up shop during Le Guess Who?, to bring the world’s most exciting music scenes to Utrecht. In 2022, we’ve presented new acts from Slemani, Kurdistan-Iraq; Goa, India; Cairo, Egypt; Pernambuco, Brazil; Mexico City, Mexico; Khartoum, Sudan; China; and Palestine. Watch this space for our 2023 announcement.
These embassies are the starting point for a broader network, and a resource for artists, community organizers, and listeners. COSMOS and Le Guess Who? are always looking for new partners to collaborate on showcasing their local scenes, talent, and stories.
