For too long, underage partygoers have missed out on seeing top tier musicians and DJs perform live in Australian. This was mostly due to the lack of availability of these artists and the costs involved in touring them. But thanks to the dance music powerhouse Totem One Love and Australia¡¯s foremost urban music outfit Illusive Touring this is soon about to change.
Introducing the inaugural Breakout Under 18¡¯s Music Festival launching in Sydney on Friday the 2nd of December 2011. The event will be held at the Byron Kennedy Hall & Horden Pavilion in Moore Park.
Breakout Music Festival will feature some of the biggest artists to enter our shores. The line up includes the likes of Armin Van Buuren, LMFAO, The Bloody Beatroots, Afrojack, Marvin Priest, Xzibit and over 15 other supporting artists.
Armin van Buuren has been named the world¡¯s #1 DJ a historical 4 years in a row. The constant innovator has an award winning radio show A State of Trance, which reaches over 30 million listeners from more than 40 countries each week, a highly successful record label, Armada which is home to the worlds best trance acts and a hectic touring schedule that takes him to all corners of the globe. His successful A state of Trance show reached 500 episodes this year, which he celebrated over 5 continents, with 5 sold out shows, in 5 weeks and broadcasted live for fans all over the world to tune in. The man plays in stadiums to tens of thousands of people on a weekly basis, and we¡¯re bringing him all the way to Breakout just for you! LMFAO (USA)
LMFAO are American electro pop duo notorious for their hits ¡®I¡¯m In Miama B¡¯**ch¡¯, ¡®Shots¡¯ and ¡®Party Rock Anthem¡¯. They call it Party Rock. It sounds like electro hip-hop, it looks like obnoxious street attire and it can be found at the top of the top of the global singles charts. This year, the entire world is shuffling to LMFAO¡¯s ¡®Party Rock Anthem¡¯, which has seen the Los Angeles-based duo top the charts in twelve countries and attract over 185 million views on YouTube. 185 MILLION! It was the longest running number one single in Australia since 2006 and the biggest selling track of the decade so far. Their live show is recognised as one of the most electrifying in the world, and you¡¯ll finally have the chance to experience it first-hand at Breakout! The Bloody Beetroots (ITA)
Often described as the love child between the Misfits and Daft Punk, The Bloody Beetroots is the artistic combination of Bob Rifo and Tommy Tea. The Italian group are most well known for the anthem ¡®Warp 1.9¡¯ (yep, that one ¨C ¡°warp, warp!¡±) and the amazing ¡®Cornelius¡¯. Their DJ set is not just two guys twiddling knobs but more a primal punk rock show mixing electro, punk and acid house tearing through genres like a child shedding through gift-wrap on Christmas morning. You definitely won¡¯t be forgetting it in a hurry! Afrojack (NL)
A unique artist respected for huge hit productions yet completely drenched in the club underbelly, with unmatched turntable skills he¡¯s loved by clubbers and main-stream audiences alike. Radio anthems, dance-floor bombs and energetic performances have seen Afrojack set a new standard in the industry. He is the first artist in 20 years from Holland to have a number 1 single in the States, and earlier this year was able to add a respectable Grammy award to his mantelpiece. Afrojack¡¯s ¡®Take Over Control¡¯ is currently the hottest club anthem hitting number 2 on Beatport and championed by BBC Radio 1¡¯s Annie Mac and Pete Tong. His widespread success has placed Afrojack as the leading figure of the Dutch scene. Marvin Priest (UK)
The son of reggae superstar Maxi Priest, Marvin Priest might be just kicking off his solo career but make no mistake, the young London-raised artist has well and truly honed and defined his chops. Having toured as backup vocalist for acts like UB40 and penning hits singles for Maxi Priest such as ¡®Full Hundred¡¯ and ¡®Childhood¡¯. Having more recently signed to the amazing Island Records, Marvin released the single ¡®Own this Club¡¯ which has now become a favourite of radio and tv networks throughout Australia and collected over six hundred thousand views online. Xzibit (USA)
Xzibit first came to public¡¯s attention on the late ¡¯90s with the release of his debut album ¡®At the Speed of Light¡¯ which reached the heights of critical acclaim. Since then, he had a meteoric rise to the top of the hip-hop world where he collaborated regularly with Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Dr. Dre and released the huge singles ¡®What¡¯s the Difference¡¯, ¡®Multiply¡¯, ¡®X¡¯ and ¡®Get Your Walk On¡¯. Rolling Stone has hailed him as ¡®one of the most respected rappers in the game¡¯. You¡¯ll see why at Breakout!.
