Perth usually have every right to complain about their location, and their lack of gigs. Hours and hours away from the hustle and bustle of the East Coast, the WA capital is often at a loss when big name artists and festivals tour the country. But every now and again, something comes along that changes that up a bit. And today, the mother of all excuses is here.
While on an Australian tour, which will see him performing at festivals including Lost Paradise, FOMO and Beyond the Valley, Jamie xx will be visiting Perth, with a VERY special guest on DJ duties: Four Tet. That’s right, the master of experimental electronic will be on DJ duties for the evening, while also in town to perform at NYD Festival Let Them Eat Cake and more. I’m sure we can expect a full Four Tet tour announcement soon too!
The pair will be performing at the open-air Belvoir Amphitheatre on January 2, 2016.
Tickets go on sale November 2 at 9am (local time), with a pre-sale on October 29 – more details about that right here.
Four Tet last visited Australia in late 2014 for Listen Out Festival. Jamie xx was here at the start of 2015 to perform at Falls/Southbound, and has since released his incredible solo debut In Colour (read our track by track review here), opened his very own record store, scored a ballet, announced news of a new The xx album and plenty more.
