As you’ve maybe heard, this year Fuzzy is ditching it’s annual October knees-up Parklife in favour of a smaller, more boutique ‘IDM’ (Intelligent Dance Music) festival (although Autechre, Aphex Twin or any other ‘IDM’ artists are conspicuously absent from the just-announced line-up).
Listen Out, which arrives with the tagline ‘Party. Redefined’, will take place at Centennial Park on Saturday September 28. The event is self-described as “the antidote to many of the things you don’t like about big music festivals. It is a carefully handcrafted party, with a killer line-up of the dance music that matters and a philosophy of best, not biggest. Say goodbye to endless timetable clashes, long hikes to the 12th stage and spending your day with several thousand people you can’t relate to.” The lineup features Disclosure (live), Azealia Banks, TNGHT (Hudson Mohawke & Lunice – live), Duke Dumont, AlunaGeorge, Classixx (live), Miguel Campbell, John Talabot (live), Just Blaze, Rüfüs, Touch Sensitive, Laura Jones and more, with tickets on sale as of midday Thursday June 27 from $89.
