Chance The Rapper To Headline Origin NYE Festival’s Huge Lineup

Perth’s New Year’s Eve Festival Origin NYE has announced a massive lineup for its 10th Anniversary event.

Organisers have prepared something really special for their tenth event, curating arguably their biggest lineup to date. Chance The Rapper will headline the event, confirming long-teased plans to tour Australia.

He’ll be joined by British electronic duo Chase & Status, grime artist and Skepta’s brother JME, Dutch trio Noisia and local legend What So Not.

While it’s hard to believe, that’s only the start of the lineup. US rapper GoldLink will make his return to the country after impressing crowds at Laneway this year, Canadian producer and regular visitor Ryan Hemsworth is coming back and upcoming rapper Denzel Curry will also play.

The bill also has a strong Aussie representation with Shockone and George Maple due to play alongside many others.

It will all go down on 31st December at Claremont Showgrounds. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, 2nd August.
