Listen Out 2016 Lineup Announced

UPDATE: The 2017 Listen Out Festival lineup has now been announced.

UPDATE 23/09/16 3:25pm AEST: Listen Out has announced the two acts which will help to replace Stormzy on their 2016 lineup.

UPDATE 23/09/16: UK Grime act Stormzy has pulled out of Listen Out and all remaining live shows in 2016, citing reasons out of his control.

ORIGINAL STORY: The lineup for Listen Out Festival 2016 has been announced and it’s stacked full of electronic and hip-hop acts ready to tour the country over September and October.

The festival, now in its fourth year, has rounded up a lineup headed by Claptone, A$AP Ferg, Stormzy, Baauer, Gorgon City, JAUZ and many more.

As expected, thanks to a clue in the teaser vid, Anderson .Paak is on the lineup and will be bringing his full band The Free Nationals with him.

As per usual, there are plenty of homegrown names on the bill. The likes of Cosmo’s Midnight, LDRU, Willow Beats and Ngaire will all be touring around the country. Rüfüs will also be playing their last Australian shows of the year at the festival.

With Steresonic, Future and Soundwave, all disappearing from the festival scene in the last year, Listen Out is one of the few touring festivals left in the country. Over four years, it’s continued to get better and this may just be its best lineup yet.

Tickets are on sale from midday on Thursday June 23rd. Check out the full lineup and dates below.

UPDATE 05/07/16: Listen Out have added rapper Travis Scott to the 2016 lineup.

Watch: Claptone – Puppet Theatre
