2manydjs LIVE and Skegss are in :) / Violent Soho is out :(
Splendour XR is stoked to announce the addition of two new acts, Belgian maestros of mash ups and SOULWAX fame, 2manydjs LIVE and Australian surf garage legends Skegss!
Yes, Soulwax’s famed Dewaele brothers are preparing something special for Splendour XR. Renowned for their ability to turn impossible genre clashes into magnificent mixes, 2manydjs hugely influential ‘As Heard on Radio Soulwax’ series started a mash-up movement and led them to work with the likes of Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem and Daft Punk.
2manydjs ‘Under the covers’ LIVE show sees them using their magic mixing skills across both audio and animated visuals that have been created specifically for each track and based on the record’s artwork.
Byron Bay faves Skegss are also joining the party! Hot off the release of their massive sophomore album, Rehearsal, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, the trio is ready to take you on a thrill ride through their sun-kissed garage rock. Skegss are on the cusp of world domination with their riotous sound that has sparked circle pits and stage dives the world over. Don’t miss it when they bring their raucous live show to a screen near you for Splendour XR!
Unfortunately, Violent Soho has withdrawn from Splendour XR. They sent the following message to fans…
“We’re extremely bummed to not be able to perform for our fans at Splendour XR. When our Splendour in the City performance was cancelled we scrambled to put together a new show for XR but the realities of lockdowns and border closures have made it impossible to get it set up in the short amount of time we had. We hope to see you all in real life some time soon” said Violent Soho.
Good times are ahead! Make sure you add 2manydjs LIVE & Skegss to your watch list!
