About Fatboy Slim
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 three huge Australian dates in January 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 east coast 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 Whitsfords Nodes Park in WA on Sunday 2 February. He will be joined at 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 which became some of the biggest and most immersive parties the UK 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.
