Die Antwoord Added To Origin NYE Lineup

Perth’s biggest New Year’s Eve party has just gotten another boost, with the announcement that South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord will join the Origin NYE 2016 lineup.

Origin NYE was already set to kick off 2017 in style, with a bill featuring Chance The Rapper, Chase & Status, Noisia, What So Not and heaps more.

Now the enigmatic Cape Town duo and stars of 2015 indie film Chappie, Ninja and Yo-Landi will head down under with a brand new album in tow. Their new record is due out this September and will be titled Mount Ninji and Da Nice Time Kid.

Stay tuned for more additions to the lineup as they are announced. Tickets are on sale now.
