King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard (pictured) have announced the line up for Perth’s edition of Gizzfest which will move this year from the Urban Orchard to take over Port Beach on Sunday, November 26. The festival will include the main stage as well as three Hut stages, food, bars and more.
The lineup includes King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Kikagaku Moyo (Japan), La Luz (USA), The Murlocs, Orb, Parsnip, Peter Bibby, Boat Show, Gunns, POW! Negro, Axe Girl, Lana, Aki Swati, Reef Prince, Magnolias Live, Childsaint, Spacey Jane, Hussy, Western Kinsmen of the Sun and Grevious Bodily Calm.
It has been a massive year internationally for King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard as they carved up and/or sold out almost every date on their global tour in the biggest venues and best festival spots they’ve played to date. They’ve been absent from the Australian live circuit for much of the year other than the now legendary eight night run “ïn-the-round” at the Nightcat and a wild show at Splendour in the Grass in July so they couldn’t be more pleased to get out on the road with a travelling show of their very own making featuring some of their favourite local, national and international artists and friends.
King Gizzard never break a promise and are on schedule to release the five albums they promised this year. So far we’ve seen the microtonal freakout that was Flying Microtonal Banana, the dystopian end of times concept album Murder of the Universe and the trippy collaboration with their US mates Mild High Club Sketches of Brunswick East with two more crazy wax slabs still to come around this GIZZFEST mayhem.
Catch King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and more at Gizzfest on November 26 on Port Beach.
