“We’ve expanded Outlines for its second year to allow us to showcase an even broader range of artists and to give more of a platform to breaking talent from across a range of genres. With the likes of Loyle Carner, Shura and Spring King having featured on 2016’s bill, we’re confident that there will be some new names to suit all tastes on 2017’s lineup.”
