Massive NYE bash Shore Thing has begun to build the buzz surround this year’s event today by officially announcing the headlining act as none other than the dark prince of dubstep Skrillex.
Organisers of the event didn’t just manage to book the EDM powerhouse, but also managed to secure the legendary Skrillex Spaceship stage show, which will be joining the DJ on his journey Down Under for the first time ever.
The Skrillex good times don’t stop there either. Organisers have effectively handed the keys of the festival over to Skrill-dog, allowing him to choose the other artists for the lineup, meaning the acts booked will have to meet his rigorous standards.
Held on the shores of Bondi Beach, Shore Thing 2013-2014 is shaping up to be a total no-brainer for your New Year’s celebration plans, with plenty more big announcements expected to drop.
If you have a radio and/or Internet connection, there’s truly no need to introduce Skrillex. Coming from the emo movement, Sonny Moore kicked in the doors of the EDM world and strutted up to the bar, clutching his 2010 full-length Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites. Most recently the producer cut sick all over the BBC Radio 1 studio with a 2 hour BBC Essential Mix
2014 is set to kick off not with a bang but with some heavy, heavy woob. The rest of the lineup can be expected soon.
