As if bringing in big guns like Jamie xx, Four Tet and Jon Hopkins wasn’t enough, NYE festival Lost Paradise has now rounded out its 2015 line-up with six more noteworthy names (and a little something for everyone).
Future Classic star Hayden James will be back in the country after a massive North American tour, and he’s taking his live show to the Glenworth Valley (an hour north of Sydney) between 29 and 31 December. London’s critically-acclaimed machine-funk specialist Daniel Avery is also throwing in his lot with the high powered roster of British electronic talent already on the line-up, while Tom Loud’s ridiculously fun Hot Dub Time Machine dance party will also make an appearance. Rounding out the final announcement are fast-rising locals Sampa The Great, indie-pop act A.D.K.O.B and Future Classic-signed duo World Champion.
Elsewhere on the line-up you’ll find live acts like George Maple, Tkay Maidza, Seekae, Touch Sensitive and Crazy P, as well as a finely curated selection of international and local names from house, techno and bass, including Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO, Finnebassen, í‚me, Prosumer, Anna Lunoe and Young Franco.
Lost Paradise is promising more than just high quality tunes, though, with “glamping” facilities, an on-site spa with massages and facials, a yoga tent and roaming circus, “long table feasts curated by top Sydney chefs” and non-dancing activities like abseiling, horse riding and an en masse skinny dip in the river.
Check out the six line-up additions below, and the poster with the initial line-up announcement below that; final release tickets are on sale now for $335 over here.
