In an official statement from Fuzzy, the Australian renowned festival and touring company are set to replace Parklife with a new brand of party this year, introducing Listen Out.
“Surprise: Fuzzy is not holding Parklife this year. Why? To focus on creating a new event that is desperately needed. Australia does not have a national intelligent dance music event – until now. Listen Out brings quality dance music to four spectacular inner city venues across Australia this spring.
Listen Out is the antidote to many of the things you don’t like about big music festivals. It is a carefully handcrafted party, with a killer lineup of the dance music that matters and a philosophy of best, not biggest. Say goodbye to endless timetable clashes, long hikes to the 12th stage and spending your day with several thousand people you can’t relate to. Listen Out is the right party, and we mean party not festival, for the right people.”
On paper it looks like a great idea, sort of like Laneway for the electronic heads. Fuzzy have always had stronger relationships with veteran dance producers and globally revered labels as well new talent both locally and worldwide.
