This Listen Out Act’s Tour Rider Is Brilliantly Nuts

It looks like Listen Out might have to fork out the big bucks for one of the hip-hop acts on their lineup this year as the lavish requests are already filtering through.

Rae Sremmurd, the US rap-duo consisting of Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy, are heading down-under for the festival and it seems festival organisers are going to have their work cut out getting the tour rider together for the act.

TMZ has uncovered a list of things they demand backstage and while it includes the usual suspects of champagne and Hennessy, it also features some ridiculously brilliant stuff.

The rappers, who raked it in last year thanks to their track No Flex Zone, request that their backstage room be filled with $300 in dollar bills (guess it will have to be coins while in Australia, or maybe they’ll settle for fivers), small super soakers – i.e. water pistols – and beach balls.

It gets better though. They also ask that they be transferred from the airport in a 15-passenger van fitted with a stripper pole because the party starts the minute they touchdown apparently.

Unfortunately for Lee and Jimmy, Listen Out organisers are going to have some trouble tracking down their food requests. They ask for two spicy crunch Doritos tacos from Taco Bell which, for some cruel reason, no longer exists in Australia.

Let’s hope that’s not a deal breaker for them.
