Listen Out add a new name to the 2015 line-up

It’s been a week of ups and downs for the team at Listen Out. The bad news? Norwegian hitmaker Lido has pulled out of this year’s festival tour, citing “circumstances beyond [his] control”. And the good? To make up for it, Fuzzy have added local hitmaker Basenji to the bill in Lido’s place.

Basenji will head around the country with Listen Out when the tour kicks off this Saturday, armed with the new music from his debut EP, which conveniently drops on Friday. He’ll be playing on 909 Stage alongside fellow locals Roland Tings and Hayden James, internationals like Ryan Hemsworth, Dusky and SBTRKT, and Golden Features, the homegrown star closing the stage out.

Over on the Atari Stage, meanwhile, punters can catch the likes of Childish Gambino, Joey Bada$$, Alison Wonderland and Odesza. “I think this year’s line-up is the closest yet to our vision for the show: equal parts solid house, hip-hop and quality electronica,” organiser John Wall said when Fuzzy announced this year’s bill.

Listen Out 2015 hits Melbourne’s Catani Gardens, Perth’s Ozone Reserve, Sydney’s Centennial Park and the Brisbane Showground over the next two weeks. See the line-up as it stands below and catch up with the set times here.
