New Years Eve is traditionally a night to celebrate big bass, tight 808s, trap, hip-hop and grime, and Origin Festival has got you covered – today, adding even more rare appearances internationals and enticing local favourites to the bill for one massive night across 2015/16.
Joining the Origin line-up will be Pittsburgh rap prodigy, Mac Miller, known for his sass, smooth rhymes and reflective lyrics for a rare and, no-doubt turnt, appearance in Perth. Having freshly released their new album Between II Worlds, UK electronic trio Nero are the buzz of the electronic music world, set apart from the EDM pack with their theatrical live show and sound design too big just to fit in a club. For over twenty years these originators of drum n’ bass have been pushing the genre to new levels – Ed Rush and Optical are back at Origin NYE.
A proudly Australian powerhouse, Anna Lunoe is equal parts DJ, vocalist, songwriter and producer who laces her tracks with her distinct, crystalline vocals. Whether it’s shadowy, sound system shaking bass or cosmic-coloured melodies, Perth’s own Sable is set to throw down an unforgettable performance and the festival will also host the debut Australian show of burgeoning, pirate-radio championed UK rapper BONKAZ who has been tipped as the next big thing by… just about everyone.
In it’s 9th incarnation, Origin continues a NYE event that has put Perth on the bass music map. Tickets are on sale now – head to TheOrigin.com.au for further details.
