Circo Festival 2013 Lineup Announced + Teaser Video
Many festivals seem to skip the sunny city of Perth and stay generally along the east coast of Australia, lord only knows why, but WA’s capital has it’s treasures that we just can’t help noticing here at PURPLE SNEAKERS.
Of course there are the wonderful musicians who are pumping out of the western state like TAME IMPALA, POND and TA-KU also our good mates at Pilerats call Perth home, so there are definitely many reason why Perth should be highlighted on the Australian map with a neon sign that says “Perth is rad!”
Metric Promotions have decided that it’s about time that Perth had something to call its own, a festival that is unique to the city and gives all of the music lovers out there something special just for them to enjoy – and of course for the rest of us to travel over to if we feel so inclined – and so CIRCO was born. Metric got together with ICSSC, with support from Pilerats and SixThousand, to create a festival that will host some of the best Australian and international acts for a night of rad happenings that just can’t be missed.
With Aussie favourites DUNE RATS, TA-KU, CHET FAKER, FLIGHT FACILITIES, WILLOW BEATS and HERMITUDE gracing the stage, the dancefloors will be packed as they will for our American friends GIRAFFAGE, JEROME LOL and WAVY SPACE, and some kids from the UK like MICKEY PEARCE and NEW YORK TRANSIT AUTHORITY, and this is only half of the line-up.
CIRCO plans to be not only musically spectacular, but visually as well with stunning projections and a circus vibe that we all really just can’t get enough of, remember there’s a reason why we get excited about the circus coming to town, but mix the circus with some of the best music from great artists and you’ve got yourself a night to remember. Taking place under two undercover spaces, CIRCO will be safe from the elements so if rain does decide to join the party, it’ll all still roll on.
Check out the propaganda video for a little taste of what’s instore for your night at CIRCO.
Ascot Racecourse is hosting this spectacular event and the third ticket sale is happening now so if you’re keen for a good night of candy floss, acrobats and music that will just top off your excitement, then head to CIRCO the most fun you’ll have in a very long time.
