Future Music is a little over a month away, and organisers have just announced the final group of acts that will be gracing stages across the country for the electronic road show. We’re told it’s gonna be big:
How big? Well, for starters, hot on the heels of their latest and greatest artist album We Love Machine, legendary UK Progressive House, Breaks and Trance duo, Way Out West, will debut their highly acclaimed LIVE show on Australian soil for the very first time and are set to take the Future Music Festival on a once in a lifetime sonic journey as they perform a sublime mix of their studio gems – old and new – 100% LIVE.
Alternative rap fans will be in rapture, because America’s global alternative Hip Hop phenomenon, Spank Rock, is packing their bags for Australia and promising to bring the noise and party with them as they take the underground Hip Hop faithful on a high octane jaunt through their explosive cache of Baltimore Club bombs and electro-fuelled dirty rap bangers.
Continuing the Future Music Festival’s proud tradition of showcasing Australia finest electronic talent, Sydney DJ/Production Bag Raiders will be on hand with their kazoos and Flamenco guitars to reveal their new madcap LIVE show for the very first time; while the prodigiously talented and ARIA Award-winning quintet, Operator Please, will give their legion of Indie fans a 100% LIVE and exclusive sneak peak of their forthcoming sophomore album’s playlist.
And epitomising the festival’s dedication to presenting the very freshest sounds on offer, piping hot Hip Hop/Soul newcomers Space Invadas (featuring Steve Spacek of Katalyst fame) and LA’s latest audio riot Jump Jump Dance Dance (featuring Groove Terminator and Christ Carter) will hit their respective stages running as they perform exclusive, unreleased material from their highly anticipated debut albums.
As if all of these local and international artist lineup additions weren’t enough, this year’s Future Music Festival will also see the return of the hugely popular and totally interactive Silent Disco arena, and the deliciously random and utterly hilarious Solid Gold Rollerdisco rink. Offering perfect escapes from the hustle and bustle of festival life, these unique, quirky and much-loved arenas are firm favorites with those in the know…
And finally, in news that’s literally sure to send Trance fans ‘above and beyond’, eminent global Trance record label, Anjunabeats, is hosting its own, fully-branded and themed arena for the very first time on Australian shores. Featuring a premium selection of some of the imprint’s biggest artists (including Above & Beyond, Super8 & Tab, Jaytech and Matt Zo) playing the latest upfront Trance that they’re famous for, the Anjunabeats Stage is, quite simply, the perfect addition to the nation’s favourite electronic music festival…
