Future of music hits Brisbane
FUTURE Music Festival will roll into Brisbane next weekend, showcasing some of the best live acts in the world.
Bands that need no introduction for their blitzing live performances that happen to be headlining the festival include The Prodigy, Empire of The Sun and Franz Ferdinand.
The festival will also showcase some of the best up-and-coming electronic talent on the planet, including legendary UK progressive house – Way Out West.
Hot on the heels of their latest and greatest artist album We Love Machine, Way Out West, will debut their highly acclaimed live show on Australian soil for the very first time and are set to take the Future Music Festival on a once in a lifetime sonic journey as they perform a sublime mix of their studio gems – old and new.
Alternative rap fans will be in rapture, because America’s global alternative hip-hop phenomenon, Spank Rock, are packing their bags for Australia and promising to bring the noise and party with them as they take the underground hip-hop faithful on a high octane jaunt through their explosive cache of Baltimore club bombs and electro-fuelled dirty rap bangers.
Future Music punters will also be the first in Australia to catch piping hot hip-hop/soul newcomers Space Invadas (featuring Steve Spacek and Katalyst) and LA’s latest audio riot Jump Jump Dance Dance (featuring Groove Terminator and Chris Carter) who will hit their respective stages running as they perform unreleased material from their debut albums.
This year’s Future Music Festival will also see the return of the hugely popular Silent Disco arena, and the deliciously random and utterly hilarious Solid Gold Rollerdisco rink, offering the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of festival life.
And finally, in news that’s sure to send trance fans into the stratosphere, eminent global trance record label, Anjunabeats, is hosting its own themed arena for the first time in Australia. Featuring a selection of some of the imprint’s biggest artists (including Above & Beyond, Super8 & Tab, Jaytech and Mat Zo) playing the latest trance they’re famous for, the Anjunabeats stage will be the perfect addition to the nation’s most progressive festival.
