Listen Out’s killer 2016 line-up is here

Listen Out’s line-ups have always paired electronic music with hip-hop and that’s a tradition Fuzzy won’t be breaking in 2016.

The bill for this year’s national festival is in and it’s an all-killer, no-filler affair. Trap don Baauer, UK lads Gorgon City, bass head JAUZ and house hero Claptone will all be making the trip to Australia for Listen Out, forming this year’s international dance contingent.

They’re joined by Anderson .Paak – the guy behind Malibu, one of the year’s most celebrated albums – and his live band The Free Nationals, plus New Level rapper A$AP Ferg, grime’s new star Stormzy and OG sad boy Yung Lean, who delivered his second LP Warlord earlier this year.

The local artists on the line-up are just big. Rüfüs will be playing their last Australian shows of the year at Listen Out, while homegrown stars like L D R U, Willow Beats, Cosmo’s Midnight and JOY are also locked in for sets.

The Listen Out tour kicks off on September 24 in Melbourne (where punters can expect some serious sound upgrades) and hits outdoor venues in Perth, Sydney and Brisbane over two weekends. Check out the full line-up and list of dates below.

Want to be there? Tickets go on sale from midday on Thursday June 23 through the Listen Out website.
