After a month of guessing games, the organisers of Sydney’s OutsideIn festival have finally let fans off the hook with the announcement of their lineup for 2014. Now entering its third year, OutsideIn will play host to the likes of The Pharcyde, Seekae, Pantha Du Prince, Client Liaison, and more.
OutsideIn’s 2012 and 2013 instalments sold out months in advance and this year’s festival looks to be no different, with an incredible lineup that highlights innovative bands and artists from the past, present, and the future, who’ll be spread across three carefully curated arenas this November.
Kicking off this year’s announcement are ’90s hip-hop vanguards The Pharcyde, best known for their seminal 1992 release, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde, aka Kanye West‘s favourite album. They’ll be joined by local three-piece Seekae, as well as Germany’s favourite minimalist, Pantha Du Prince.
The event will also remain a testing ground for acts from Australia’s ever-expanding electronic music scene to prove what they’re made of, with the addition of the Red Bull Music Academy stage and the very dapper presence of swiftly rising Melbourne-based synth-gods Client Liaison.
OutsideIn is a collaboration between taste-making Sydney touring and management agency, Astral People, and equally influential record label, Yes Please. Together, these creative folks have handpicked a futuristic soundscape for what is sure to be one of the highlights of the festival season.
UPDATE (25/09/14): The second OutsideIn artist lineup has now been released, and is led by Roy Davis Jr (US), Basenji, Brenmar (US) and Collarbones. The full updated lineup is available to view below.
