Listen Out Announces Third Instalment of Crate Diggers Stage

Listen Out is just around the corner, and is bringing with it one of the best lineups we’ve seen in some time. Childish GambinoRae SremmurdJoey Bada$$ODESZAHayden JamesClient Liaison and so many more, it is enough to make your head spin when you consider how spoiled for choice we punters are.

Unfortunately, it seems the folks behind this festival like to make things a little bit harder for us. They clearly like to make us sweat, with the announcement today that the Red Bull Music Academy Crate Diggers stage is set to also make a comeback for this year’s festival.

“What is the Crate Diggers?”, I hear you ask. The festival summed it up best themselves when they explained, “We round up a bunch of dance music experts who also happen to be excellent DJs and set them loose to excavate the musical ancestors of the sounds you’ll hear on the two main stage.” If that alone doesn’t sound like a good time, I don’t know what is.

From “All Australian Dance Music” to “Italo-Disco”, this stage is going to be one hell of a party and one that could well and truly rival the main stages. Check below for more details and then join me stressing out about how the hell I’m going to work out a timetable!
