Ticket Information

After hundreds of millions of streams, blockbuster festival sets and headline shows across the globe, JAI WOLF has today confirmed Australian tour dates on The Cure To Loneliness tour – kicking off in Brisbane at 256 Wickham on Friday, November 8 before heading to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Born in Bangladesh, raised in New York City, inspired by everything from indie-punk to hip-hop, orchestral symphonies and the Bollywood classics of his parents, Jai Wolf’s life and music have been defined by a liminal quality that only a third culture kid could understand. It’s that quality that takes centre stage on his new record, “The Cure to Loneliness”. The album sees him slip between references to cultural moments with an ephemeral quality tinged with nostalgia. The sunny melodies and bombastic hooks bely subject matter that often ruminates on loneliness, distance, and a lack of place. This all converges to create an emotional complexity to the music that cuts deeper than the average festival fare.

My music is for people who are desperately dreaming beyond where they are at right now – it can be the future, it can be the past. I want you to feel nostalgic. I want you to reflect on your life. I also want you to be inspired about where your life could go,” says Jai Wolf.

Jai Wolf has taken an unconventional path to arrive at this point. It was Skrillex himself who plucked him from obscurity when he came across the then-fledgling bedroom producer’s bootleg of “Ease My Mind” in 2014. But it was ‘Indian Summer” that propelled him to the stratosphere, racking up tens of millions of streams, a major GoPro ad campaign, an appearance on American Idol, and even soundtracked Kobe Bryant’s final basketball game in the NBA. The song made Jai Wolf a star, but creatively, he was already looking towards bigger and better things.
