Listen Out is coming back for another year, with the next edition of the festival announcing its dates and venues for 2016.
The touring festival will head to its regular venues at Centennial Parklands in Sydney, and will also return to St Kilda’s Catani Gardens for the Melbourne leg once again, despite concerns over the sound issues that saw many of the later sets muted last year.
Promoters have responded to complaints from last year though, by increasing the site’s noise limits by another 10dB, adding extra speakers and making upgrades to the venue’s soundproofing.
Listen Out will play brand new, bigger venues in Perth and Brisbane, moving to Western Parklands and Victoria Park respectively. Festival organisers have also promised that this year the Melbourne event will “be a lot louder”.
Since its inception, Listen Out has featured some incredible acts including Disclosure, Azaelia Banks, Flume, Chet Faker, Alison Wonderland, SBTRKT & Childish Gambino – and punters will be on the edge of their seats waiting to see if organisers can match 2015’s huge lineup.
According to Fuzzy this year’s lineup is “coming soon”.
