Heaps Good Festival have just dropped the first lineup announcement for the New Year period and it’s a cracker. Acts include Flume, Foals, The Avalanches, SBTRKT, Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Declan McKenna, Griff, Holly Humberstone and more.
After Adelaide’s incredible debut last year, Heaps Good Festival now includes Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl on New Year’s Eve and Brisbane’s Sandstone Point on Tuesday January 2nd before returning home to Adelaide Showgrounds on Saturday 6th January.
DJ Flume needs no introduction to festival goers, with millions of streams worldwide, multiple awards and Platinum sales in many countries. His live show is one that just gets better and better every time you see it.
Likewise with British rockers Foals, who have been headlining shows in Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading in recent months. No strangers to our shores, they always put on an electric performance.
Another act that always gets the crowd pumped is The Avalanches, whose 2000 debut album Since I Left You laid the blueprint for the future of sample-based music in the 21st century.
Victoria and Queensland will have SBTRKT performing, including tracks from his latest album The Rat Road. Melbourne will also have Basement Jaxx presenting a DJ set of some classic tracks including “Where’s Your Head At”, “Romeo”, “Red Alert” and much more. This will definitely keep the party going.
Declan McKenna will ignite stages in South Australia and Queensland with his euphoric set and feel-good tunes, while British pop queen Griff knows how to get the crowd moving. Another British act, Holly Humberstone is also one to watch after her 2022 Brit Rising Star award.
The list goes on, with homegrown act MAY-A who impressed with her debut EP Analysis Paralysis, which dropped this month to a great review.
Sycco aka First Nations artist/writer/producer Sash McLeod brings her pop-driven, psych-infused, dance-inducing electronica to the event this year, whilst multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer and songwriter Logan opens proceedings across all three dates.
General onsale starts from 4pm AEST Wednesday 20 September. Now, it’s time to prep’ your mates and get ready to buy tickets as your Heaps Good Summer starts now!
