Astral People, who run the boutique electronic Outsidein Festival have responded to the announcement of Fuzzys own new dance niche party ‘Listen Out’.
Astral People note the positive nature of bringing new acts to Australia that haven’t toured before but also the similarities between the two.
The result also means a push of the Outsidein lineup that was scheduled for tomorrow/Thursday.
What do you think of it all?
OutsideIn was started as an avenue to promote quality underground electronic music to Sydney and beyond. We’ve put in hours upon hours of work into our brand and developing an event that we as music lovers could be proud of.
We are all for competition and companies bringing out new, interesting artists because at the end of the day why we do this is for the love of music. And this is just another opportunity for us to see some more of the artists we love. We’d rather people bring out these sort of artists than the same recycled acts year in and year out. It goes back to why we essentially started OutsideIn.
To see others now blatantly rip off what we’re trying to do is not just an insult to us but more so an insult to the intelligence of patrons and music lovers alike. If you think that copying a logo and rebranding your festival is enough to win over fans then you’re sadly mistaken. Our fans know good music. At the end of the day we are confident that it’s what will always keep us a step ahead of the others no matter what sort of brand or name is thrown behind it.
We will be delaying our announcement so we don’t get caught up in the media mess that will eventuate over the next week but rest assured, we will be delivering a product to the best we can for you guys early next week. This has been a tireless effort from all our ends and united with our amazing fans we will return bigger and better this year. Don’t follow imitation, we got you.
