One of the largest Aussie hip-hop festivals, Sprung Hip Hop Festival, has released its 2013 line-up, which includes some of the biggest names in the business.
Headliners include, 360, Drapht and Seth Sentry as well as a whole roster of Australia’s best talent, such as Horrorshow, Thundamentals, Allday, Urthboy, Dialectrix and Brad Stut.
And for the first time, just to entice music lovers even more, Sprung will be having an exclusive Melbourne show, in additional to its Brisbane leg.
The headlining act of 360 is a massive call by the organizers, who are grabbing an artist at the peak of his powers. 360 has been on a supreme run of form, following the release of his 2011 album, Falling & Flying.
The album has debuted at number one on the iTunes charts list, and also includes, three songs on the 2012 triple j Hottest 100 and lead 360 to winning the 2011 Channel [V] Oz Artist of the Year.
Seth Sentry is another artist on the wave of success. After killing it at the Groovin’ The Moo Festival, and the SXSW convention in the US, the Melbourne-born rapper has announced that he will be kicking-off his own tour, Vacation, on the first of August.
Sprung will be an all-ages event, which has meant that tickets are set at a low price of $79 or for VIP fans, there’s the $130 option. Which means, just like last year’s record in which the festival was sold out in two hours, it will go just as faster this year.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale for the Brisbane show on Thursday, 13th June, with the Melbourne pre-sale will be available on Tuesday, 16th July.
While general public tickets will go on sale on Friday 15th June for the Brisbane show and on Thursday, 18th July for the in Melbourne leg. Do. Not. Miss. Out.
