Members: Still Woozy is one man, Sven Gamsky, who travels with touring musicians for live shows
Biography: Twenty-five year old Sven Gamsky is creating a unique style of music out of his garage in Oakland, California. His artist alias is “Still Woozy,” which resembles the self-described “dreamy” and “out of it” feeling of his life. His music is a mixture of acoustic and electronic instruments that combine to make a funky, laid-back, abstract sound. Sven thanks the internet for gaining popularity, and believes his success could not have been possible without it. When Sven released his second solo song, “Cooks,” in July 2017, he had few expectations, and just put it out wherever he could. Shortly after, Sven received multiple texts regarding his newest song as it had been put on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist. The playlist has over 20,000 followers, which kickstarted his popularity and allowed him to grow exponentially from where he was. Sven’s most popular songs “Goodie Bag” and “Cooks” total over four million Spotify streams, and his new single “Lucy,” featuring melodious artist, ODIE, has over 400,000 and continues to grow each day. Sven makes all his music in his garage, where he has a wide range of equipment setup. He uses a guitar, bass, piano, drum pad, and a new top of the line Juno 106 synthesizer. Although only his newest song is feature-based, he recently brought in a drummer for future projects. They are currently underway on a new track, and Sven hopes that the duo become regular collaborators. Sven’s current favorite artists are Good Morning, Frank Ocean, Department of Eagles, and Steve Lacy. His dream show would be a co-show with Frank Ocean and it would be anywhere. His favorite pastime is basketball and he hopes to be playing more live shows as he comes out with more music.- KCPR

Haven't seen him yet, but I'd imagine this will be a pretty chill mid-afternoon tent set simlar to UMO last year. Should be a nice little break in the middle of the day to prepare for RTJ/Tool/Primus.
I discovered this dude last year and thought he would probably begin to blow up if he continued on with what he's doing. His music is super smooth and his style is pretty popular right now. I'll definitely check him out if it's a mid day set, but I hope they don't throw him in the Clairo spot from last year. This year's LN is going to be too stacked.
