Take three of the hottest DJ acts, put them against the stunning Sydney Harbour backdrop, grab yourself a free ticket and + 1 and turn up the sound and you have the rocking new floating festival You+1 brought to you by Durex. Stepping up to the decks and providing inimitable summer beats are none other than: international tastemaker & party rocking legend Steve Aoki, eclectic Londoners with soul Rudimental, and local electro-pop pilots Flight Facilities, in what will be a first for the Australian dance scene.
Certainly no stranger to these shores, party boy Steve Aoki was recently named highest grossing dance music artist in North America. He is famous for his riotous on-stage antics, Steve is one man you don’t want to miss behind the decks. He’s pretty pumped to be heading our way again, recently quoted as saying, “I’m really looking forward to returning to Australia and setting sail with You+1 – with three great acts across three decks, it’s set to be an awesome show!”
Heading Down Under for their debut DJ tour are none other than Rudimental. These boys have made huge waves in their native UK with their recent track Feel the Love. Drawing on their eclectic musical backgrounds, they’ll be showcasing their fresh approach to electronic Soul at You+1.
Flight Facilities are one act we don’t need to introduce. Known for their sunset sounds and feel good tunes, the local lads will be flying the flag loud and proud.
To lock down your place at the ultimate You+1 floating festival, head to the Durex Australia Facebook page and apply for free tickets, including a plus one – tickets are extremely limited and are available now. Only 700 people will get the tix and you can’t buy them for love or money, so you need to be ready to act quickly when tix are made available; mark it in your calendar now.
