Listen Out has filled a spot in Australia’s festival calendar perfectly. Taking place in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth over late September, it’s a haven for those who love dance, hip hop or anything in between. This year is no exception, with headliners like A$AP ROCKY, Brockhampton, Skepta and Skrillex. But if that’s not enough to convince you, then here’s what should be getting you excited.

Brockhampton, with new album Iridescence in tow

Brockhampton have had a few false starts this year. However, they look finally set to release their 4th studio album, Iridescence, just in time for their trip Down Under. It’ll be one of the first chances to hear these songs live, in addition to the boyband’s barnstorming Saturation trilogy.

Confidence Man

Does much more need to be said? They’re one of the best bands in Australia right now. You won’t want to miss them at the peak of their powers.


Skrillex closing the festival

It’s gonna be a Bangarang of a time (sorry). There’s maybe no-one better in the world at starting (or finishing) a party in the world, and to experience his strain of dubstep live will be something people talk about for

Skepta finally coming to Australia

Grime fans, rejoice. Skepta is finally making his way to Australia, and it’s long overdue. Who else is going to Shutdown the festival? Man, it’s going to be a great time. Australia’s going to feel like the UK, even for just a day.

Haiku Hands

Haiku Hands are Australia’s best kept secret, and a rival to Confidence Man. Having been lucky enough to catch them at Splendour in the Grass, I can’t wait to see them again. They’re built for festival stages, and you won’t quite believe what you’re seeing, trust me.

Keep your eyes out for a ticket, because this is one event you won’t want to miss, otherwise you’ll be kicking yourself! And if you’re looking to gear up for the festival, check out our Mixtape.
