20:00 Woodkid (France)
A multi-disciplinary artist, Woodkid's Yoann Lemoine combines towering sonics and ambitious visuals with a yearning for the wonder and innocence of childhood. Alongside his acclaimed work as the director of videos for artists such as Lana Del Rey, Drake, and Rihanna, he developed a moody, sophisticated musical style combining lush strings, stark electronics, and vulnerable vocals that first appeared on 2011's Iron EP. The contrasts within Woodkid's music took on an autobiographical bent on 2013's full-length The Golden Age, an internationally charting album that spawned the single "Run Boy Run" (whose video earned Woodkid a Grammy nomination). Though Woodkid's releases were infrequent -- a "Woodkid Sad Remix" of Pharrell Williams' "Happy" appeared in 2014, and his second EP, Woodkid for Nicolas Ghesquière: Louis Vuitton Works One, arrived five years later -- they were consistently striking, and 2020's sophomore album S16 underscored the singular nature of Lemoine's music.
