Janelle Monáe

In 2019, Janelle Monáe made a stunning entry into Rock Werchter’s golden book. Her afternoon concert in The Barn went off like a glitter bomb. Special effects, costume changes, dancers, humorous videos… entertainment for the next century. The American artist and actor combines the best of many worlds. She has the moves of Michael Jackson, the funk of James Brown, the frivolity of her great hero Prince and the social radar of Erykah Badu. Together, that makes her a sophisticated character who presents high-functioning pop which weaves in identity and sexuality in an unusual way on her latest album ‘The Age of Pleasure’ (2023).
