Red Bull Music Academy Presents: Future Classic Stage at Laneway Festival, 2016 ft. Hudson Mohawke, Thundercat + More
For the third consecutive year running, you can thank our friends at the Red Bull Music Academy and Future Classic for what will be an incredibly on-point curated day of great dance and hip hop.
The stage will be assembled for Laneway Festival in 2016, and it’s going to be a great one.
Boasting a great all-star international lineup, you’ll have the opportunity to see Hudson Mohawke bring his new album Lantern to life and a couple of other established and emerging acts too.
Legendary producer Thundercat will be take his historical brand of electronic sounds to the stage, and deliver an absolutely unforgettable moment.
Hip-hop aficionados Vince Staples and GoldLink will be providing some solid rhymes whilst keeping it entirely fresh. Both have plenty of LP content to bring to the stage, so it’s going to be a big one.
PC Music gal QT and her pal Soiphie will be joining forces to bring the most infectious brand of bubblegum-dance, but with an incredibly bassy twist.
Electro-rock outfit Health will finally be gracing us with their eclectic and incredibly dark sound, one that will definitely translate well into a live setting. The five-piece
East India Youth will be making their way to our shores for a set, as well as Ruban Nielson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s brother Kody Nielson AKA Silicon.
Aussie favourites Japanese Wallpaper and Banoffee join this all star lineup.
It was always going to be innovative – each year with Laneway Festival has proven to be so. But this year is looking to be their biggest yet, and it’s going to be a day to look out for.
