splash! 2023: First Line up drop announced!

splash! Fam, 


the wait is over: Today we celebrate the first line up drop for our anniversary edition. 45 (!) acts – that is the biggest line up announcement in splash! history. You can find all the artists for splash! 2023 in our line up section.  

Most important rapper of our time, G.O.A.T., living legend: After Kendrick Lamar’s unforgettable show at Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin, we gave our all to bring this “good k.i.d.d.” back to Germany. Ten years after his very first splash! performance he is going to write history at Ferropolis.

With Lil Uzi Vert and Ufo361, two of your absolute favorites are going to return to the City of Iron. Uzi’s legendary stage dive from our mainstage last year went viral – so we can’t wait to see what this Philly talent has in store for us this year.

Finding the right words to introduce Ufo361 is simple: Who within the German rap scene has set such standards? No one, right. Talking about “Standard”: Our first co-headliner Trettmann is connected to splash! via a long history that most definitely isn’t finished yet.  



And yes, we can still increase your anticipation: Ski Mask The Slump God is only one of the amazing artists that are going to rule the Beach Stage. Yung Lean is finally going to bless you with a crazy performance after his show last year got cancelled. In general, the international line up of splash! 2023 is beyond expectations: Memphis’ very own rap queen GloRilla and the two ATL heirs of the throne Ken Carson and Destroy Lonely will debut at splash! stages, so will do the multi-talented JELEEL! and Florida home grown Cochise. Canada’s Dark Rap export Night Lovell, feuilleton’s favorite Denzel Curry and Compton hit machine YG are going to make sure that you end in a proper mosh pit. Plus, we are expecting two very special guests from the United kingdom: Aitch and skaiwater.  

From the midst of the German rap cosmos, artists such as badmómzjay, Haftbefehl, CÉLINE, Kitty Kat and Flavio are going to create unforgettable splash! moments. A proper escalation will be offered by Ski Aggu, $oho Bani, LIZ, Gola Gianni, viko63 & penglord and many more. 

More acts, including two more co-headliners, will be announced in the next line up drop in a few weeks. And also beyond the big stages we are preparing some surprises for you at the splash! birthday party. Only 141 days left until the big family reunion at Ferropolis! If you don't have a ticket yet, now is the time to get one. Early Bird and Phase 1&2 tickets are already sold out. Click here for Phase 3 tickets.
