New Perth Festival Slanted And Enchanted Announces Inaugural Lineup

Written by Mike Hohnen on September 3, 2013

Slanted and Enchanted have announced the lineup for their inaugural event in 2013, set to be carried out across Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Bakery, transforming the city into a choose-your-own-adventure musical playground for one night only on Saturday, 7th December.

The delights will begin to unfold from 6pm local time at the Astor Theatre in Mount Lawley, where acts such as Cave, Metz and Deerhunter will feature, with the main stage wrapping up at 11:40pm.

Things will kick on across town at The Bakery in Northbridge, which opens its doors at 10:00pm, where a bill capped off by LE1F with Mess Kid and UK’s Jon Hopkins will be featured.

Of course, should you be digging the vibes emitting from The Astor, you needn’t leave at all, with the good times expected to keep on rolling upstairs in the Cool Perth Nights Room with Sugarpuss, Runner, DJ Jane Azzopardi and more.

An array of ticketing options are available for the event including single passes for each venue, and dual passes which will get you through the whole damn thing, including a connecting bus on the way. All tickets are available via Life Is Noise.

UPDATE: Brisbane six-piece, The John Steel Singers have just been added to the Slanted and Enchanted lineup. Coming off a successful run at the annual BIGSOUND conference, the band are celebrating the imminent release of their new LP, slated to drop in November.

The new studio effort is the follow-up to their highly acclaimed 2010 debut, Tangalooma. With plenty new joyous indie-pop in tow, the band will be bringing plenty of good times to their exclusive show at Slanted and Enchanted in Perth.

Also joining the lineup will be Melbourne electronic producer Lower Spectrum. He’s remixed such artists as Tantrums, D.D Dumbo, and Oliver Mann and is now bringing out his first full-length release, titled Little Appeal. This atmospheric new release has been billed as “soundscapes to bathe your brain,” with a mix of field recordings and deep rhythms.
