Did Listen Out Just Give Away The First Act On Its 2016 Lineup?

UPDATE 21/06/16: The 2016 Listen Out lineup is here!

Listen Out festival looks like it might have just hinted at one of the artists poised for its 2016 lineup, after announcing its 2016 dates and venues earlier today.

Listen Out organisers Fuzzy Events have sound-tracked a new YouTube video — which confirms that the Melbourne leg of this year’s Listen Out will be “much much louder” thanks to an increased noise limit — with the song Am I Wrong by Dr. Dre collaborator Anderson .Paak. Interestingly, the song also features Listen Out 2014 act ScHoolboy Q. Catch the video, below.

Paak last performed in Australia late last year, and the musician’s inclusion in Listen Out’s YouTube clip suggests he and his band The Free Nationals could very well be planning another trip down under, as there’s still a nice spot in Paak’s schedule after his current US tour. Music Feeds has contacted Fuzzy Events for comment.

Last year’s Listen Out lineup featured the likes of Childish Gambino, Joey Bada$$, SBTRKT, Alison Wonderland, Golden Features, Client Liaison, Lido and ODESZA.

The festival says its 2016 lineup announcement is “coming soon”, so while we wait, catch the event’s full run of 2016 dates and venues, below.

UPDATE 15/06/16: Listen Out has revealed which day it will be announcing its 2016 lineup.
