Fatboy Slim Announces Massive Australian Tour

You’d better be ready to Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat – Frontier Touring is ecstatic to announce the return of revered DJ and prolific producer Fatboy Slim for five huge Australian dates in January and February 2020. The party-starting machine is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last few decades, but it’s his uncomparable energy and true passion for live shows that makes him the icon he is.

The legend of British dance music will launch his run of Australian shows on the long weekend eve in Melbourne at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Friday 24 January before heading north to Brisbane’s Riverstage on Saturday 25 January, Sydney Showgrounds’ The Halls on Friday 31 January, Adelaide’s Glenelg Beach on Saturday 1 February and wrapping things up at Whitfords Nodes Park in WA on Sunday 2 February. He will be joined at all shows by 2manydjs, aka David and Stephen Dewaele of Soulwax (DJ set).

These shows are a continuation of Fatboy Slim’s enormous 2019, which included a seven date sold-out UK arena tour – some of the biggest and most immersive parties his homeland has ever seen. The club sensation has since celebrated the 20th anniversary of his unforgettable tune Right Here Right Now with a rework, The Return To The Valley Of The Right Now, also adding in a triumphant return to Ibiza in July of this year for the Pete Tong sessions at Blue Marlin, DC10 with Carl Cox, the legendary toilets at Hi and the main room at Glitterbox.

More than your average DJ set, Fatboy Slim’s sets take things to a whole new level. Iconic singles like Praise You and Weapon Of Choice make an obvious appearance, but it is the attention to detail in his carefully designed visuals that elevate an already stellar performance to an almost religious experience, meticulously programmed to sync up with whatever is played in the moment and transcend the gap between live music and visual accompaniments.

The legendary 2manydjs, a project by the brothers behind Soulwax, David and Stephen Dewaele, will perform DJ sets at all Australian shows. Pushing the boundaries of electronic music since 1995 as djs (2manydjs), as a band (Soulwax), as a record label and studio (DEEWEE), through a sound system developed with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy (Despacio) and even with an app/website/visual radio station/live event (Radio Soulwax), they have become icons of electronic music. They’ve released stellar remixes for the likes of Tame Impala, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, and Daft Punk, and their 2002 2manydjs album As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt 2 set a template for remixing followed by imitators ever since. They’ve toured extensively across the globe throughout it all, returning with their first Soulwax album in many years with 2017’s From Deewee. In 2018 they brought us another LP, Essential, created specifically for their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and making them the first artists to ever submit a full hour of original material for the show.

Fatboy Slim isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, and his upcoming Australian tour will be no exception.
