It’s finally here! Fuzzy Entertainment have finally unleashed the killer lineup for the annual Listen Out Festival. And boy is it a treat. The first lineup is 18 deep, with plenty more to be added, and boasts some of the biggest names in hip-hop and electronic dance music from around the world.
At the top of the bill is my personal favourite Childish Gambino, who wowed crowds the last time he was down under for Splendour in the Grass. Set to be dropping a new album in coming months, there is no doubt Gambino will bring nothing but feel good vibes to the table and have everyone groovin’ along. Hip-hop heavyweights, including Brooklyn’s very own Joey Bada$$, Rae Sremmurd (SREMMLIFE!) and ILoveMakkonen will also be joining Gambino down under. But it’s not all hip-hop.
SBTRKT will be bringing his critically acclaimed Wonder Where We Land down under, leading the crowd through DJ set for the ages. Joining him will be Australia’s very own Alison Wonderland, Odesza, Golden Features, Dusky and future-trap lord Ryan Hemsworth, plus many more.
Listen Out festival will be touring the country starting September 26 in Melbourne, September 27 in Perth, October 3 in Sydney and October 4 in Brisbane. Tickets go on sale Thursday the 18th of June, at midday so brace yourself. For more info, hit Listen Out’s website.
