Porter Robinson‘s love affair with Australia continues with the American producer announcing two headline shows with support from Wave Racer and Cosmo’s Midnight this July in addition to his set at Splendour In The Grass 2015.
Robinson was here last November for Stereosonic, but these newly announced dates in Sydney and Melbourne mark the first Australian headline dates with his new live show.
Previously, Robinson was known for delivering high-energy, EDM-style DJ sets but he’s changed tack with the release of his debut album Worlds, deciding to bring it to life with live instrumentation.
In an interview with Music Feeds last year, Robinson said of the new set, “It’s all live music, it’s not other people’s music at all. I’ll be playing samples, running multi-tracks and playing keys.”
Wave Racer may not be playing Splendour this year but the Australian producer will be joining Robinson on both sideshow dates. It makes sense that Wave Racer would be supporting given that Robinson told us how much of a a fan he is.
Rising Australian duo Cosmo’s Midnight are playing at Splendour this year and will also support Robinson on both dates. The pair represent a new frontier of Australian electronic music and are just about to release an EP featuring a track with Norwegian producer Lido.
Robinson is set to play Splendour In The Grass on the Friday of the festival, marking his debut appearance at Splendour. Tickets for both shows go on sale 10am local time, Wednesday, 29th April. Details below.
