With Disclosure, John Talabot, Rufus, Duke Dumont, AlunaGeorge and on occasions (when she was on stage) Azealia Banks taking the reigns as headliners of last years inaugural party Listen Out, we are excited for what to expect in at this years edition of the forward thinking ‘IDM’ parties.
The dates for round two have been announced as to be in late September and early October kicking off in Sydney on the 27th and finishing up in Brisbane with Adelaide sadly being the casualty.
Early rumours for this years edition (run by avid vinyl collector John Wall – owns over 20k vinyls) has us thinking of a return of;
- Gorgon City with an album due out around September
- Indie-dance trio Little Dragon who have two Australian dates in August and may stick around
- Funkateers Chromeo who just released their latest LP ‘White Women’
- German live electronic outfit Booka Shade who are yet to tour Australia for their last album release
- Mysterious Californian producer Zhu
- Ryan Hemsworth seems to be a staple of internationals heading to town and has steadily earned a growing fan base, we’d love to see him in summer
Who else do you think could be up for this four state party? Dates, last years wrap video below and while you’re at it check out flicks of last years Sydney party here.
